Calgary Flames forward Troy Brouwer is out week to week because of a facial fracture.
Brouwer was injured when he was hit with a puck early in the first period of a 3-2 win at the New Jersey Devils on Thursday. He left the game briefly before returning midway through the period and played 11:55.
"He played two periods that way," Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan said Friday. "He's going to be out for a while here with a fractured face. ... That's going to be a loss, especially our penalty kill, which he was taking top minutes. ... So that's a loss for us, but we'll have somebody else -- Curtis Lazar will pull in tonight -- and we'll keep moving."
Brouwer, 32, has 15 points (three goals, 12 assists) in 54 games this season. He's missed nine games in the past seven seasons.
The Flames, who have won three straight, visit the New York Rangers on Friday (7 p.m., ET; MSG, SNW, NHL.TV).
