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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
