Referee Brad Meier leaves Flames-Avalanche game after being hit in left knee by puck

DENVER - Referee Brad Meier was helped off the ice after taking a shot in the left knee early in the third period of the game between the Calgary Flames and Colorado Avalanche.

Colorado defenceman Jan Hejda was attempting a clearing pass behind the Avalanche net. Instead he caught Meier, who was stationed along the boards at 4:17 of the period on Monday night.

Meier was holding his knee as he left the ice for the Colorado dressing room. The extent of the injury was not revealed.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
