Calgary Flames defenceman Mark Giordano suffered an undisclosed injury in the final seconds of Wednesday’s game when he was knocked down to the ice awkwardly by New Jersey Devils forward Steve Bernier.
Giordano headed right to the dressing room after T.J. Brodie helped seal a 3-1 victory for Calgary with a shorthanded empty-net goal.
Following the game, Flames coach Bob Harley was unclear about the severity of the injury.
Giordano, 31, is a legitimate Norris Trophy candidate this season with 11 goals and 36 assists in 60 games. He is tied for the league lead for points by a defenceman.
