The Calgary Flames injury merry-go-round continues to spin this season. The Flames made three injury related announcements today after their morning skate.

The Good.

Jiri Hudler will be back in the lineup Wednesday night against the Florida Panthers. Hudler has been sidelined with a LBI (groin) since he left the January 2nd game against the Colorado Avalanche.

Calgary has gone 1-2 while Hudler is out and even though his struggles have been very noticeable this season, maybe some time off will get him going. The 32 year old forward has 5 goals and 15 assists in 35 games so far this season.

Bob Hartley also said after practice that Michael Frolik is skating with the team (wearing the yellow jersey) at practice. A return for the game against the Panthers on Wednesday doesn't seem likely, but he could be back very soon.

The 27 year old Czech has 7 goals and 9 assists in 30 games this season.

The Bad.

Snake-bitten forward Lance Bouma is heading back to the injured list. Bouma, who sustained a LBI in last night's loss to the San Jose Sharks will be out for a good chunk of time according Flames bench boss Bob Hartley.

Bouma has only played in 11 games this season and notched his first goal of the campaign on an empty netter against the Tampa Bay Lightning last week. It's been a tough season for Bouma who sustained an UBI on October 13th that put him out until December 22nd. Hopefully this stint will be shorter, as the Flames will need their physical forward in the lineup to make a push for the playoffs.
