He had been playing on the top line, with Sean Monahan and Johnny Gaudreau.

Calgary Flames left winger Jaromir Jagr left Saturday's game against the Minnesota Wild after the first period because of a lower-body injury.

In a corresponding move, the Flames recalled forward Mark Jankowski from the Stockton Heat of the American Hockey League. He broke his stick attempting a shot on goal before skating to the bench and going to the dressing room.

Jagr needs to play in 51 more games to become the all-time leader in games played, passing Gordie Howe's 1,767.

The 45-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Flames just before the start of the season and has played five games and put up two assists.

Ryan Suter and Jared Spurgeon scored back-to-back goals 95 seconds apart in the final period as Minnesota claimed its second victory.
