Brodie to join Flames on road trip, no timetable for return to lineup

Defenseman works out under supervision of medical staff, GM says evaluations 'have been reassuring' @NHLdotcom

TJ Brodie will join the Calgary Flames on their current road trip but there is still no timetable for the defenseman's return to the lineup.

Brodie skated under the supervision of the Flames medical staff Thursday as he recovers from a medical episode that occurred during practice Nov. 14.

The 29-year-old collapsed during a drill, started convulsing, was removed from the ice on a stretcher and was awake on the way to the hospital. He remained there for testing but was released later that day.

"TJ has been working out for the past several days and today skated on his own under the supervision of our medical staff," Flames general manager Brad Treliving said. "Over this past week, he has had consultations with appropriate specialists in Calgary. To date, all medical evaluations and testing have been reassuring. We still work to complete final testing and are optimistic he will rejoin the team in the near future. TJ has been placed on injury reserve retroactive to Nov. 14."

Brodie has eight assists in 21 games this season.

The Flames, who were defeated 5-0 by the St. Louis Blues on Thursday and are 0-5-1 in their past six games, play at the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; ESPN+, NBCSP, SNW, NHL.TV).
