Fehervary exited in the second period of the team’s game against the Calgary Flames with what appeared to be an arm injury.
The incident occurred with just over 10 minutes left in the middle frame, with the 23-year old blueliner taking a hit from Flames forward Milan Lucic and quickly exiting down the runway.
