Calgary Flames goalie Karri Ramo left Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings after a collision with a teammate while racing out for a loose puck. Ramo did not return to the game, which the Flames lost by a final score of 3-2.
Ramo left the crease to play a loose puck and collided with Flames defenseman Raphael Diaz in the slot. He left the ice with 9:49 remaining in the second and the score tied 1-1.
Ramo made 12 saves on 13 shots in his first start since being pulled after allowing four goals on 13 shots in a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Dec. 16.
Jonas Hiller came on in relief.
According to Sportsnet’s Elliiotte Friedman, the Calgary Flames and pending restricted free-agent defenseman, T.J. Brodie, have begun talking contract extension.
Brodie, 24, has two goals and six points while averaging nearly 25 minutes of ice time a night through six games this season.
Originally a fourth-round selection of the Flames in 2008, Brodie has 65 points in 191 games over parts of five seasons for Calgary.
Brodie’s two-year, $4.25 million contract expires after this season. He is the Flames only RFA on the blue line. Both Raphael Diaz and Corey Potter will become unrestricted in July 2015.
The Montreal Canadiens have re-upped with one of their most surprising playoff performers, giving checking forward Dale Weise a two-year, $2 million contract extension on Tuesday.
“The acquisition of Dale Weise contributed to the success of our team this season,” Habs GM Marc Bergevin said in a statement. “A young veteran with a lot of character, Dale is an intense player with a strong work ethic.
“We’re very pleased to have him as part of our team moving forward.”
Weise, acquired from Vancouver in exchange for Raphael Diaz this season, scored six goals and 16 points in 61 games split between the Canucks and Canadiens this season. In the playoffs, Weise emerged as one of Montreal’s most versatile forwards, scoring seven points in 16 games, leading the Habs with two game-winning goals (tied with Max Pacioretty and Rene Bourque.)
Just 25 years old, Weise is getting a nice bump from the $615,000 he made last year, and gets some security after playing the last three seasons on one-year deals.
