Flames' Gaudreau to undergo surgery to repair fractured finger

Nov 17 2016, 3:07 am

Johnny Gaudreau has a fractured finger and will have surgery on Wednesday to repair the injury, the Calgary Flames have revealed.

Gaudreau suffered the injury in Tuesday’s big 1-0 win over the Minnesota Wild, in which he scored the game’s only goal.

As the video below shows, Gaudreau was whacked in the hands a number of times, which presumably led to the injury.

For now, there is no timeline for his recovery, but as you can imagine, the Flames are not pleased.

It goes without saying that Calgary will miss Gaudreau greatly. He’s their best player and was just starting to get in a groove with four points in his last four games.

The Flames are four points out of a playoff spot and in danger of falling further behind as a six-game eastern road trip looms after home games against Arizona (tonight) and Chicago (Friday).
