Calgary Flames defenceman T.J. Brodie has suffered a broken bone in his right hand and is said to be week-to-week.

Brodie took a shot off his hand in Monday’s pre-season game against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Flames say he is expected to miss three to six weeks.

Brodie became Calgary’s No. 1 defenceman at the end of last season and played big minutes after captain Mark Giordano was injured in February.

The 25-year-old from Chatham, Ont., does not require surgery, says Flames general manager Brad Treliving.

The Flames open the regular season at home Oct. 7 against the Vancouver Canucks.
