The Carolina Hurricanes lost defenseman Dougie Hamilton indefinitely after he broke his leg on Thursday. And Stormy lost his pregame picture partner.

The team's mascot shared the pair's customary photo before the Hurricanes' against the Anaheim Ducks, but this time he was solo and holding up a sign that read "Get well soon Dougie."

Tweet from @NHLStormy: Miss you Dougie ������

Prior to Hamilton's injury, Stormy posted a picture with him before every home game.

Hamilton and Stormy shared many pregame photos, whether celebrating the New Year, hanging out with Pucky on Whalers night, on Stormy's Bobblehead Night or Star Wars Night.

Hopefully the tradition will pick right up where it left off as soon as Hamilton is healthy again.
