CALGARY -- Calgary Flames forward Jiri Hudler and defenseman Dennis Wideman each left a game against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night with upper-body injuries.

Hudler, who leads the Flames with 30 assists and 43 points, sustained the injury 19 seconds into the third period after taking a hit from Senators forward Clarke MacArthur and sliding hard into the boards.

It is unclear when Wideman sustained his injury. He didn't come out for the third period after playing 12:08 through the first 40 minutes. His final shift ended with 33 seconds remaining in the second.

The Flames announced each player would not return.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
