Flames’ Wideman injured in post-goal collision

Dennis Wideman just can't seem to stay on the ice.

The Calgary Flames defenseman was hurt in the immediate aftermath of Michael Frolik's goal against the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday night.

Wideman collided with teammate Joe Colborne near the boards, moments after Frolik gave the Flames a 2-0 lead in the first period.

The Flames later labeled Wideman's ailment an upper-body injury and announced he wouldn't return.

Calgary head coach Bob Hartley passed along a vague but concerning update after the game.

It was Wideman's third game back after sitting out 19 contests while his 20-game suspension for hitting linesman Don Henderson was appealed and ultimately reduced to 10.
