CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Calgary Flames defenseman Noah Hanifin will need season-ending shoulder surgery.
The 24-year-old was injured early in the first period of Saturday’s game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Hanifin was tangling with Canadiens forward Corey Perry along the boards near the Flames bench when his left leg went out from underneath him. Hanifin’s shoulder made contact with the ice as he went down.
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound defender has four goals and 11 assists and was a minus-2 in 47 games this season.
