Calgary Flames goalie Mike Smith left Monday night's win over the St. Louis Blues and it appears he'll miss at least one game with the undisclosed injury.

Per TSN and the Calgary Sun, he did not travel with the team on Tuesday. More than that, the team did not update Smith's status after the 7-4 win. Details on the 35-year-old’s injury that he suffered during the first period of Monday’s 7-4 win against the St. Louis Blues were "cloudy," noted the Sun.

The Flames head out on a six-game road trip beginning Wednesday in Detroit. 

Smith has started 16 of the team's 17 games this season, registering a 9-6 record with a .921 save percentage and a 2.63 goals against average. The Flames acquired Smith in the off-season from the Arizona Coyotes.

And for what it’s worth, "there were no American Hockey League transactions on Tuesday evening that involved the Flames’ affiliate Stockton Heat, the big club and goaltenders David Rittich or Jon Gillies," noted the Sun. As of Wednesday morning, the Flames had not recalled a goaltender from the AHL. Flames general manager Brad Treliving said the team would update Smith's status before their game against the Red Wings.
