A move that will likely surprise few at this point. T.J. Brodie is being called up to replace Anton Babchuk.
This is good news for Flames fans as Babchuk has been underwhelming so far this season and Brodie is being given his chance on NHL ice for an evaluation.
Anton Babchuk has a broken hand that was suffered in last nights game against the Wild. Personally, can not recall the play that occurred on, as Babchuk did not leave the game.
A post game x-ray likely revealed it. Lucky break for Brodie, bad luck for Babchuk. Remains to be seen what will happen with the Flames but Babchuk has hardly been stellar so far this season.
