Hamilton (undisclosed) reportedly expected to miss "weeks."

Hamilton reportedly suffered a new injury, unrelated to the broken leg which forced him to miss the final two and half months of the regular season. Sara Civ of The Athletic reported that Hamilton's absence is "in the realm of weeks not months." This is untimely news as the Hurricanes enter the hub city bubble and get set to face the Rangers on Saturday. Carolina was 11-7-3 (11th in the NHL) after Hamilton was hurt in mid-January.

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 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.
