Calgary Flames defenceman T.J. Brodie has suffered a broken bone in his hand and is listed week-to-week, the team announced Wednesday.
The 25-year-old has been a steady presence on the blue line the past two seasons, playing 81 games in each of the two last campaigns. He stepped into the No. 1 defender role during captain Mark Giordano’s absence last year.
from the CP at TSN,
TJ Brodie scored a fluke goal with two seconds left in the extra period as Calgary overcame a two-goal, third-period deficit to edge Boston 4-3 for its league-leading 10th victory when trailing after two periods.
"I don't know what to say anymore. Those guys never quit," said Flames coach Bob Hartley. "We always have the feeling that we can pull out those comebacks."
From near the corner, Brodie sent the puck towards the front of the net where it deflected off the stick of Brad Marchand, fluttered high in the air and ended up behind Tuukka Rask.
"I knew there wasn't too much time left, I was just trying to get the puck to the net. It took about three or four bounces and luckily it went in," said Brodie.
Rask tracked the puck OK but couldn't squeeze it.
"I tried to bend myself and grab it and it hit my glove, hit the top of the net, bounced back," said Rask.

Calgary, AB – The Calgary Flames announced today that they have signed defenseman TJ Brodie to a five-year contract.
A native of Chatham, Ontario, Brodie has started the season with three goals and four assists for a six game point streak which is the longest in the NHL this season and a career high. His 176 minutes of ice time leads all players in the NHL and his seven points are tops among NHL defensemen. Brodie, a Flames fourth round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, has amassed 11 goals and 55 assists for 66 points in 192 career games.
The Calgary Flames are expected to complete a contract extension with defenceman TJ Brodie on Monday. The deal is believed to be for five years, in the range of $23 million, according to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie.
The 24-year-old has three goals and four assists in seven games this season for the Flames, as well as a plus-5 rating.
The Flames selected the Chatham, Ontario native with the 114th pick in the fourth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
Brodie made his NHL debut during the 2010-11 campaign and posted a career best four goals and 27 assists in 81 games last season.

Today’s three cheers (an all-goalie edition!) for those who deserve as much from their performances of a night ago:
***Cheers to Edmonton’s Nikolai Khabibulin, who turned aside 26 Florida shots in the Oilers 3-2 win over the Panthers, for his second win in as many outings on the young season. After off-ice woes and injury problems recently, Khabibulin’s solid start to 2010-11 is a great sign for both he and a young and exciting Oilers club. If he can return to form and stay healthy, the many pundits who automatically tabbed Edmonton for the Western Conference cellar will end up looking awfully silly come season’s end.
