It's being described as a hand injury, the reason why Matthew Tkachuk was not able to dress on Thursday night against the Dallas Stars. The Calgary Flames rookie has earned his full-time ticket with the club and has been decent to start the year, 3 goals and 6 points in his first 12 games of his NHL career. He has been one of the team's most important players this year, doing a lot of the right things and really earning his keep there. The injury is a bit of a disappointment, but the team is hoping that it is a minor situation.
It has been a bit of a struggle this week for Derek B.'s team, only 7 points so far in the week and we start the long weekend proceedings tonight. Currently, his team is 25 points back of the money and will be looking for a spark somewhere this weekend.
