Giordano_Flames_2013Another minutes-eating defenseman for an NHL team will be out an extended period of time as the Calgary Flames announced Mark Giordano will be out with a broken ankle.

The Flames’ captain has been placed on injured reserve and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks.

Giordano hasn’t played since Oct. 21 and will be sorely missed in the lineup.
