The Calgary Flames’ list of ailments has grown by two key ones. The club announced today that veteran defenseman Dennis Wideman (fractured hand, out 6 to 8 weeks) and rookie forward Sean Monahan (hairline fracture in foot, week to week) have been placed on injured reserve.

In response, the Flames have called up center Paul Byron from AHL Abbotsford.

Other Calgary players on injured reserve:
— D Mark Giordano (broken ankle, week to week)
— F Curtis Glencross (knee, 2 to 3 weeks)
— F TJ Galiardi (back spasms, day to day)

The Flames have just two wins in their last 10 games and are facing a pair of tough outings in Anaheim Friday and Los Angeles Saturday.

Wideman leads Calgary in average ice time (26:15) and has 12 points in 24 games. Suffice to say, his absence will be felt on a team that was already among the NHL’s worst.
