The Calgary Flames have announced that Captain Mark Giordano is out for the remainder of the season with a torn bicep. Flames playoff hopes takes a big blow.
The news came down right after the Flames dealt Baertschi to Vancouver, as the trade deadline hit. Obviously Giordano requiring surgery and a four to five month recovery is big blow to him and the team. Giordano arguably was on his way to a Norris Trophy type season, and his team is eyeing a playoff spot.
Once Mark Giordano has had his surgery and begins his recovery, I am sure he will find a way to help this team. By the looks of it Russell will try to help fill that leadership void, and Mark will be of great support to Kris in that scenario.
