Mark Giordano's injury was somewhat of a mystery for the past week. On Monday, Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving cleared it up, and it wasn't good news, announcing the defenseman has a torn biceps tendon.
"He'll be done for the season," Treliving said. "The surgery we are talking, it's 4-5 months in terms of the rehab process. … He was devastated by the news. … This is not what he wanted, but this is what it is, so we will deal with it."
Fantasy owners of Giordano will have to deal with it too. You can't replace a defenseman who has 11 goals, 48 points, a plus-13 rating, 14 power-play points and 157 shots on goal. But with the fantasy playoffs a few weeks away, unless you're in a keeper league, you likely have to drop him and acquire another player to help your blue line.
