Hamilton suffered a broken fibula and is out indefinitely.
Hamilton was injured late in the second period on Thursday. Hamilton and Kevin Stenlund were chasing after the puck when they had their legs tangle, Hamilton falling backward and bending his left leg under him. Hamilton will undergo further evaluation before they decide on potential surgery. Jordan Staal suffered a similar injury in a preseason exhibition game in September 2014 against the Buffalo Sabres. Staal underwent surgery to repair a broken fibula and had an estimated recovery time of three to four months.
Hamilton was forced to leave Thursday's game with a lower-body injury.
Hamilton suffered an ugly-looking leg injury during Thursday's loss in Columbus. He was tangled up with Kevin Stenlund and went down very awkwardly. Hamilton had to be helped off of the ice and when head coach Rod Brind'Amour addressed the media post-game, he said that "it doesn't look good, obviously." It looks like the Hurricanes could be without their All-Star defenseman long-term but expect an update in the next 24 hours.
The Hurricanes acquired Dougie Hamilton, Michael Ferland and Adam Fox from the Flames for Noah Hanifin and Elias Lindholm.
Hamilton is ranked as the No.13 right-handed defenseman according to Corsica Player Ratings. During his three-years in Calgary, Hamilton ranked sixth in the NHL among defensemen in goals (62) and 17th in points (137). Over the last two seasons, Hamilton has a 56.3 CorsiFor% and brings that to a team that ranked first in Corsi last season.
Hamilton (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

Hamilton (lower-body) is questionable for Saturday’s game in Winnipeg.
Hamilton and Michael Stone are battling injuries on the Flames’ blueline and had coach Glen Gulutzan said he hopes one of them “will play tomorrow” and the other “will play soon.” There is no word which one is closer, but expect an update after the team’s morning skate on Saturday.
Hamilton left Thursday’s game with a lower-body injury and did not return.
There is no word on what is ailing the young defenseman but assistant coach Martin Gelinas said that Hamilton should be back “sooner rather than later” during a postgame interview. The Flames are red-hot and losing Hamilton for any period of time would be a big blow to their blueline.
Hamilton is day-to-day with an illness.
Hamilton missed Thursday’s game with an illness and is considered questionable for Saturday’s game vs. the Coyotes. Hamilton was a late scratch yesterday, but you should get a good idea if he is playing during Saturday’s morning skate.
The Flames signed Dougie Hamilton to a six-year contract worth $34.5M.
The Flames have acquired Dougie Hamilton from the Bruins for 15th, 45th and 52nd draft picks in this year’s draft.
Hamilton is a pending restricted free-agent, but the Flames should have no problem getting him under contract. Since being draft 9th overall in 2011, Hamilton has scored 22 goals with 61 assists (83 points) in 178 career NHL games. He enjoyed a breakout season in 2014-15, registering 42 points (10G / 32A) in 72 contests. He joins Mark Giordano, T.J Brodie and Kris Russell to form a very strong top-4 on the Flames back-end.
Hamilton (upper-body) will not travel on the Bruins three-game road trip.
The Bruins will wrap up their season on a three-game road trip, which Hamilton will not travel on. He has missed the last seven games and it looks like he will miss the rest of the regular season. At this point there is no word whether or not Hamilton will be ready for the playoffs.
Hamilton (upper-body) is expected to resume skating next week.
Hamilton will miss his sixth straight game tonight, but he is expected to start skating again next week and could be back in the lineup before the end of the season.
Hamilton is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury.
Hamilton missed Monday’s game after suffering what is believed to be a shoulder injury on Sunday. Out indefinitely means that Hamilton could be out for the rest of the regular season—this is a huge blow to the Bruins playoff push. Expect Adam McQuaid to skate with Zdeno Chara on Thursday.
