The Calgary Flames injury merry-go-round continues to spin this season. The Flames made three injury related announcements today after their morning skate.
Jiri Hudler will return to the #Flames lineup tomorrow. He practiced with the team this morning at the 'Dome.— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) January 12, 2016
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.
"He's very doubtful for tomorrow." - Bob Hartley on Michael Frolik, who noted the forward may play on Saturday or next week.— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) January 12, 2016
The 27 year old Czech has 7 goals and 9 assists in 30 games this season.
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.
Lance Bouma (lower body) will be out for "a few weeks," as per Bob Hartley.— Calgary Flames (@NHLFlames) January 12, 2016
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.
