#EDMvsCGY FYI: Sam Bennett (upper body, day-to-day) will not play tonight.

Well, that’s not good.
A bit of a last minute news item for everyone before the game. Markus Granlund will make his 2015-16 debut and the lines will be shuffled mightily as Sam Bennett is out for tonight with an upper-body injury.
Bennett missed a gigantic chunk of last season with shoulder surgery and was not part of the group that took the optional practice this morning, but this comes as a bit of a surprise. Given that Flames head coach Bob Hartley noted no line-up changes as of this morning, one concludes that this must be a recent development.
Anyway, there it is. We’ll have more information for you as it becomes available. Enjoy the game!
