Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano needs surgery to repair a torn biceps tendon and will not play again this season.

"He looked at every avenue to not go through with that procedure and see if he can keep playing and see if there's a time where it settles down over time. But we're not going to risk anything with him. There is no opportunity for him to play. This is the only measure that's left," Flames general manager Brad Treliving said Monday on Sportsnet. "Obviously that's not the news we wanted to hear, but that's what will happen."

Recovery time is expected to be four to five months.
