Hartley: Injured Granlund’s status ‘doesn’t look good’

Mar 11, 2014, 10:02 AM EDT

It would be easy to understand if the overwhelming majority of those rooting or working for the Calgary Flames were counting down the days until their final game on April 13. At least then the pain will end.

Calgary lost rookie forward Markus Granlund to an upper-body injury as a result of an innocent-looking collision with Los Angeles’ Jarret Stoll last night, per NHL.com.

“It doesn’t look too good,” Flames coach Bob Hartley said, according to the Calgary Sun’s Wes Gilbertson

Granlund, 20, is playing in his first professional season. He’s excelled with the AHL Abbotsford Heat and has three points in seven games with Calgary.

He’ll join the growing list of injured Flames forwards that also includes Curtis Glencross, David Jones, Jiri Hudler, and Kevin Westgarth.
