Forward exits in first period against Wild
CALGARY — Calgary Flames forward Jaromir Jagr left with 5:57 remaining in the first period against the Minnesota Wild at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday because of a lower-body injury.
“I don’t know yet,” Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said about Jagr’s condition. “It’s too bad he had to go down. I thought he was controlling the puck early, had some chances.”
Jagr, who signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the Flames on Oct. 4, has two assists in five games this season.
He trails Gordie Howe (1,767) by 51 games for most in NHL history. Jagr is third with 765 NHL goals behind Wayne Gretzky (894) and Howe (801), and is second in points with 1,916 behind Gretzky (2,857).
