Flames’ Smid lands on IR

Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) – The Calgary Flames placed defenseman
Ladislav Smid on injured reserve on Saturday.

Smid appeared to suffer an upper-body injury after getting hit up high by
Penguins defenseman Simon Despres in the first period of Friday’s 3-1 loss in
Pittsburgh.

The 28-year-old has tallied just one assist in 28 games this season, his
second with the Flames.

Calgary recalled defenseman Corey Potter from Adirondack (AHL) to take Smid’s
place.
