Flames' Tkachuk out with upper-body injury
NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 11: Matthew Tkachuk #19 of the Calgary Flames skates towards the puck in the first period against the New York Islanders during their game at Barclays Center on February 11, 2018 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

The Calgary Flames will be without forward Matthew Tkachuk for their provincial clash with the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night, head coach Glen Gulutzan announced.

Tkachuk left Calgary's most recent contest late in the third period, and the ailment is being labeled an upper-body injury, according to Aaron Vickers of NHL.com. Chris Stewart will draw in as his replacement, marking his first game since Feb. 28.

While it's unclear how long Tkachuk may be unavailable, any time the sophomore misses is tough for the Flames, who currently sit two points out of the second wild-card spot in the West. In 68 games this season, Tkachuk has notched 24 goals and 25 assists while playing more than 17 minutes per night.

Canucks fan sports hilarious "tank" hat
Via Redditor Vanderkill9, spotted at the Canucks game last night. Honestly, the team should be giving these out.
