In his end-of-season media availability on Monday afternoon, Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving confirmed what had long been suspected: star forward Matthew Tkachuk suffered a concussion against the Dallas Stars.
#Flames injury news from GM Brad Treliving:
-Tkachuk sustained a concussion in game two vs. Dallas
-Rasmus Andersson was playing through a broken foot
-Sam Bennett was playing with a torn triceps, which explains his lack of face-offs as the postseason went on
