Posted by seestyle on August 3rd, 2022

What looked to be a pedestrian hockey play has now left the Calgary Flames without a veteran, top-line forward.

After Jaromir Jagr left Calgary's game on Saahdiq Charles Jerseys Saturday against the Minnesota Wild with a lower-body injury, the team announced on Monday that ithas placed the 45-year-old winger on injured-reserve due to that injury.

In a subsequent move, the Flames recalled forward Mark Jankwoski from AHL Stockton.

"Today I spoke with our medical guys and Jagr and its coming real, real good," said head coach Glen Gulutzan. "We think itll probably be about a week and he should be back."

The Jagr Jonathan Allen Jerseys injury after Jagr had a shot blocked by the Wild's Ryan Suter. Jagr stick's broke on the play, and he skated straight to bench before heading down the tunnel. He did not return to the game.


Jankowski was one of the Flames' final training Washington Commanders Pet Gear camp cuts. The 23-year-old forward has scored five goals in six games with the Flames' AHL affiliate, the Stockton Heat, this Da'Ron Payne Jerseys season (second in the league), and finished 15th in the AHL in scoring last season. He also was second among AHL rookies with 27 goals.

While Jagr was playing in his fourth game for the Flames, he mi sed the first three of the regular season despite being on the roster before Opening NIght. The Flames made Jagr's contract official hours before its season began Russ Grimm Jerseys , but Jagr said he wasn't in playing shape, and wouldn't join the lineup until he was.

We could speculate. All I know is you look at his career, he hasnt been out too, too much," Gulutzan said. "Maybe that has something to do with it. He pushed himself real hard to get up and ready. But its good. Weve got a guy thats played a lot of games in the league and he kind of knows where hes at. Hes in a better spot because he knows his body and knew when Sean Taylor Jerseys to get himself out."
