Calgary, AB (Sports Network) - The Calgary Flames announced Thursday that
forward Sven Baertschi is week-to-week with a hip flexor injury.
"I was skating and my left skate seemed to have caught a rut in the ice and my
legs kind of went into a splits position," Baertschi said of the injury, which
was suffered during Tuesday's practice. "I felt pain immediately and left the
ice to have it checked. It's very disappointing to learn that it's a hip
flexor injury that will keep me out of the line-up."
The rookie Baertschi has appeared in four games for the Flames this season.
He's tallied three goals during his two-year career over nine contests.
