Flames’ Byron leaves Monday’s game with lower-body injury


Calgary Flames forward Paul Byron left Monday’s game against the San Jose Sharks early in the second period and will not return, according to Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald.

Byron suffered the injury during his first and, subsequently, only shift of the second period. He didn’t take to the ice again after that.

The 24-year-old Byron has split his time this season between the Flames and the American Hockey League’s Abbotsford Heat. In 24 games with the Flames this season, Byron has two goals and 10 points.
