The Calgary Flames aren't the only team dealing with a plethora of injuries this season.
The Abbotsford Heat have been forced to make a few recalls this year as well as their blueline has been hit with the injury bug; Patrick Sieloff, Mark Cundari, Tyler Wotherspoon and Brady Lamb are all out with maladies.
"Cundari's update is that he is starting to do better," Flames general manager Jay Feaster said on Thursday. "It's [a] back problem - spasms. His is upper back as compared to Galiardi, which is lower back. He's coming along. I don't know if he would be ready for the weekend or not but he's progressing nicely.
"Brady Lamb suffered a cut and the doctors feel he is in a situation where he can try to skate ... he might be available for the weekend. Wotherspoon with the concussion-like symptoms, he will be reevaluated by the neuro-pysch person tommorrow and he may be available for Saturday."
Sieloff is back in his home state of Michigan, dealing with an infection. His projected timeline to return to action is early in 2014.
