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

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
