With the Scotiabank Saddledome prepping for the Harlem Globetrotters' show on Thursday evening, the Flames headed over to the Corral for their morning practice.
Sean Monahan left mid-way through the hour-long skate after taking a high-stick to the face. As per head coach Glen Gulutzan, the injury isn't serious.
"He's going to get four or five stitches to the bridge of his nose," Gulutzan said. "He'll be fine."
Prior to Monahan leaving, the team ran through drills with lines and pairings:
Johnny Gaudreau - Sean Monahan - Micheal Ferland
Matthew Tkachuk - Mikael Backlund - Michael Frolik
Kris Versteeg - Sam Bennett - Troy Brouwer
Tanner Glass - Matt Stajan - Freddie Hamilton
Mark Giordano - Dougie Hamilton
TJ Brodie - Travis Hamonic
Brett Kulak - Rasmus Andersson
All three goaltenders were in attendance at practice. Mike Smith is slated to get the start in the Flames' final two pre-season games.
Forward Joseph Cramarossa was released from his PTO this morning, as per Gulutzan, and was not in attendance at practice.
