Flames' Jiri Hudler off the ice for at least a week

Calgary Flames winger Jiri Hudler won't skate for at least a week due to his lower-body injury.

What It Means:

At this point, it's not clear how much time Hudler is looking at missing beyond the week, but considering he'll be off the ice for at least a week, it can't be expected for him to return immediately after this stretch.

Hudler has 20 points (5 goals, 15 assists) in 35 games this season. His Corsi For Percentage is easily the lowest of his career at just 44.5 percent, and his Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength is -0.2. We currently project Hudler to tally another 29 points (10 goals, 19 assists) over the remaining course of the season. The 49 total points would be a steep drop-off from his career best 76 points last season.
