CALGARY -- Forward Lance Bouma will not be in the Calgary Flames lineup against the Vancouver Canucks at Scotiabank Saddledome on Thursday and will miss the remainder of the regular season because of an oblique injury.
Bouma sustained the injury in Calgary's 5-4 overtime loss against the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday.
"You tip your hat to him and say that you wish, we all wish, that we could play with the intensity and the passion that he has," Flames forward Joe Colborne said. "He wears his heart on this sleeve, he goes out there and sacrifices his body more than anyone in this league.
"We're lucky to call him a teammate and we know he's going to have a great summer and he will come back healthy, which will be nice for him."
Bouma, who scored 16 goals in 2014-15, finished with two goals and five assists in 44 games this year.
He missed 30 games after sustaining a broken fibula in October, and four games because of a leg laceration in January. He also was a healthy scratch twice in February.
"It's a tough year," Flames coach Bob Hartley said. "Started it tough and finished tough also. It's a year to forget. Get a good summer, get your focus back ... and he's a proud athlete, a heart-and-soul player, so he's going to bounce back."
Vancouver will be without forward Jared McCann in the Canucks' final road game of the season because of an undisclosed injury.
"He'll be out tonight," Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. "He's banged up a bit."
McCann has nine goals and nine assists in 69 games this season, his first in the NHL. The 19-year-old had 34 goals and 81 points for Sault Ste. Marie of the Ontario Hockey League last season, and was selected in the first round (No. 24) in the 2014 NHL Draft.
"He's been really good," Canucks forward Jake Virtanen said. "We've been on a line the last couple of games. Watching him play, he's got a great shot. He's really smooth and slick with the puck. It's been really good watching him play."
Forward Ronalds Kenins was recalled from Utica of the American Hockey League on emergency basis. He is one of 15 players to dress for both Utica and Vancouver this season.
