Flames forward Monahan, defenceman Wideman placed on injured reserve

CALGARY - Calgary Flames forward Sean Monahan has suffered a hairline fracture in his foot.

The team says the 19-year-old's status is week-to-week.

With nine goals and six assists, Monahan is second in NHL rookie scoring behind Thomas Hertl of the San Jose Sharks. Monahan is also second in Flames scoring.

The injury bug has bitten the Flames hard this season.

Captain and top defenceman Mark Giordano remains out with a broken ankle. Forward Curtis Glenncross is out with a knee injury and so is defenceman Dennis Wideman with a fractured hand.

Forward T.J. Galiardi is day to day with back spasms. The Flames have called up centre Paul Byron from the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
