ST. LOUIS — The Calgary Flames will reunited with one of their buddies in the City of Brotherly Love.
The Flames announced that defenceman TJ Brodie will join the team for the remainder of this four-game road trip, although he won’t be in the lineup for Saturday’s afternoon clash against the Flyers in Philadelphia.
The 29-year-old Brodie collapsed during a practice last week, leaving the Saddledome in an ambulance that day, but the results of extensive medical testing — including a meeting with neurologists — have been reassuring, apparently ruling out any serious health concern.
“There’s still no return-to-play time given,” stressed Flames general manager Brad Treliving. “The next step in this process, once you’ve completed all of the tests, is to start skating with the team at some point.”
Brodie, who is often paired with captain Mark Giordano on Calgary’s top defence duo, has so far missed four games since his scary collapse.
He skated solo Thursday at WinSport’s Markin MacPhail Centre, back on blades for the first time in a week.
“It’s going to be good to see him. It’s going to be real good to see him,” said Flames coach Bill Peters. “I got to see him a couple times at the Dome. He looked good. He feels good. His spirits are good. So that’s a real positive sign.
“And he can help us. He’s a good player, and we miss him. We miss his transition, his ability to move the puck. So when he gets back in, he’s going to help us.”
