Flames’ Tanguay out for season with MCL sprain

Alex Tanguay, who has 27 points in 40 games this season, sustained the injury Friday in a game against the Coyotes.

The Calgary Flames announced Saturday that forward Alex Tanguay has a grade two MCL sprain and will be out 4-6 weeks, which will result in him missing the remainder of the season.

Tanguay, who has 27 points in 40 games this season, sustained the injury Friday in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes.

The Flames also announced Curtis Glencross will miss Saturday’s game with the flu and that the team has recalled centre Ben Street from the Abbotsford Heat of the American Hockey League.

Street is in his first full season with the Abbotsford Heat where he is second on the team in assists (21) and third in goals (15) and points (36) in 67 games played. He played two games for the Flames earlier in the season when called up on Feb. 8 and made his NHL debut on Feb. 9 in Vancouver. Street joined the Flames organization after signing as a free agent last July.
