Bouma (lower body) will miss the next three months with a broken fibula, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports. After starting his career slowly, Bouma had a breakout season last year, scoring 16 goals and adding 18 assists and a plus-10 rating for the Flames last season. In three games this year, he had no points and a minus-3 rating. The Flames have been beaten up by injuries thus far this year, and with Bouma out until 2016, things aren't getting any better on the injury front.
Bouma, who left Tuesday's game with a lower body injury, will not return. He was seen hobbling to the locker room with the training staff while struggling to support his weight as he left Tuesday's game. Bouma should be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Jets.
