Flames’ Mark Giordano out Week-To-Week With Hamstring Injury

CALGARY — The Calgary Flames have placed defenceman Mark Giordano on injured reserve with a right hamstring injury.

Flames general manager Brad Treliving said Tuesday that Giordano will be out week-to-week.

The Flames captain suffered the injury late in the second period of Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks. Giordano crumpled to the ice after contorting his body to attempt an off-balance one-timer.

Giordano will miss his first game due to injury in over four seasons when Calgary hosts Nashville on Thursday night.

The 36-year-old has five goals and 22 assists with the Flames this season.
