Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving had an injury update for reporters in Philadelphia this afternoon, and it was not good.
Flames captain - and the team's best player - Mark Giordano is to undergo surgery for a torn biceps tendon and will likely be done for the season. Treliving shared the news at his media scrum following the trade deadline, noting that the surgery typically has a 4 to 5 month recovery period.

The tumultuous relationship between the Calgary Flames and supremely talented (yet inconsistent) prospect Sven Baertschi is now over.
