Mark Giordano injury update: Calgary Flames captain to miss up to two months with broken ankle

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

The surprising Calgary Flames revealed some bad news concerning the Mark Giordano injury yesterday. He hadn’t played in more than a week, but the team had not really specified why.

A broken ankle. Well that explains it.

Calgary stands at 5-4-2 right now and are among one of the biggest surprises of this early NHL season. One of the bigger reasons for their strong start has been the point production from Giordano. He has two goals and seven helpers through seven games this season, but the Flames will now have to look for a way to replace his output as he’ll be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

This is where depth really starts to come in handy. When having more than six or even seven guys on the blue line that are capable of playing at the NHL level is important. Calgary is a bit devoid when it comes to depth, so it will be interesting to see how the group responds to this high level of adversity early on.

Are the Flames going to finally settles in on their median, or are they going to continue to defy all logic and odds by winning tough hockey games?
