Matt Stajan News

Calgary Flames

Stajan has been granted a leave of absence for the birth of his child.

Stajan is not expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday because he and his wife are expecting the birth of their child. He is listed as a non-roster player right now, which allowed the Flames to recall Emile Poirier from Adirondack (AHL).

Stajan (knee) expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Stajan suffered the knee injury in a knee-on-knee collision with Jared Tinordi on Tuesday. There is no news on the nature of the injury, but it will keep him out for at least one month, potential longer. The original reports were that he might have suffered ligament damage, but that timeline does not suggest such an injury.

Stajan's knee injury is believed to be severe.

Early reports are that Stajan likely suffered ligament damage, which would sideline him for a lengthy period of time. With that news, it is not surprising that he was not on the ice this morning. While a severe knee injury is not confirmed, that is what it sounds like at this time.

No timetable for Stajan's (personal) return to the Flames lineup.

Stajan and his wife lost their newborn son who was born on March 3. He has missed the last four games and there is no word when he plans to return to the team. With the Flames way out of the playoff race and with the unimaginable grief that Stajan and his family must be dealing with, there is no reason for him to rush back to the lineup.
