The Calgary Flames will be without captain Mark Giordano for the next 6-8 weeks with a broken ankle.

The veteran defenceman was placed on injured reserve by the team on Tuesday.

Giordano had already missed three games with a lower body injury.

Forward Lee Stempniak is also out after suffering a broken foot. He is listed as week-to-week.

Stempniak missed Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals with a lower body injury.
