The Calgary Flames have gradually gotten healthier of late, with Joe Colborne and Ladislav Smid returning from time on the injured reserve in the past couple of games. Unfortunately, it seems like they may have another player replacing them on the shelf.
Micheal Ferland left tonight’s game with the Detroit Red Wings early in the second period with a lower-body injury.
Ferland went for a hit on Tomas Tatar at 1:39 of second, during a Flames penalty kill. He immediately got up after the hit favouring one of his legs and went immediately to the bench and down the tunnel, hobbling as he exited the bench area.
Really hard to tell on replays what happened to #Flames LW Micheal Ferland, but left ice in obvious pain. Was struggling to skate.

Ferland made a hit while on the PK and despite the play in the Calgary zone, went straight to the bench and to the room. #Flames

Ferland is a lot of discomfort exiting to the room.
