Calgary Flames forward Michael Frolik will be out indefinitely with a broken jaw, as reported on Twitter by Frolik's agent Allan Walsh. Frolik was injured in last night's game against the San Jose Sharks when he blocked a shot from defenseman Brent Burns.


Frolik, 29, was drafted tenth overall by the Florida Panthers in 2006. He played 695 games in the NHL with the Panthers, the Flames, the Chicago Blackhawks and the Winnipeg Jets, registering 326 points, and added 19 points in 42 playoff games. So far this season, the Czech forward has 15 points in 37 games played.

The Flames are currently fourth in the Pacific division with a record of 18-15-4. They are facing the Anaheim Ducks tonight.
