    Flames' Kris Russell: Will play Saturday

    Russell (undisclosed) missed Friday's practice, but will play Saturday against the Oilers, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports. Russell was never in serious danger of missing Saturday's contest, as the veteran blueliner was simply given a maintenance day Friday to rest and recover. The former third-round pick has tallied 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) and 130 blocked shots in 39 games this season.

    Flames' Kris Russell: Out again Thursday

    Russell (hand) won't play Thursday against the Sabres, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Russell is reportedly dealing with a hand injury, and will miss a third-consecutive game Thursday as a result. It's hardly surprising that the 28-year-old blueliner is banged up, as he leads the NHL in blocked shots with 83 in just 25 games. Russell's next chance to return to action will come Saturday against the Rangers, but he'll likely need to return to practice Friday for that to be a possibility.

    Russell (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Sharks, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports.

    Flames' Kris Russell: Likely out for Tuesday's game

    Russell (upper body) is unlikely to play against San Jose on Tuesday, Roger Millions of Sportsnet Calgary reports. Russell has played hurt this season quite a bit, so Calgary wants him back 100 percent. It's more likely that he will return for Thursday's contest, but that will depend on if he can practice Wednesday or Thursday.

    Flames' Kris Russell: To be re-evaluated Tuesday

    Russell (upper body) did not practice Monday, but will be re-evaluated Tuesday morning, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Russell's status for Tuesday's game appears a bit cloudy, but he can't necessarily be ruled out for the contest at this point. His availability at Tuesday's morning skate should be a bit better of an indicator, and the team should provide an update confirming his status one way or another prior to the opening faceoff.
