Phaneuf Bothered By Sore Leg

from the Calgary Sun,

Only two Flames players were exempt from the exhausting conditioning skate that came at the end of yesterday’s practice.

One of the absences could spell trouble for the club. Defenceman Dion Phaneuf is out indefinitely with a leg injury.

“Dion went for an x-ray,” said coach Mike Keenan after the hour-long session wrapped up at the Saddledome.

“He re-aggravated an (old) injury, and then he bumped it again (Monday) night. It’s a recurrence and he needs some time to heal.”

update 3:06pm, via TSN,

The 22-year-old Edmonton native had the leg x-rayed on Tuesday and the results were negative. He plans to skate tomorrow and is probable to play against Vancouver Thursday evening.
