Ladislav Smid (neck) hasn't decided if he wants to retire yet, per Flames GM Brad Treliving.

Smid is still just 30 years old, but he's dealing with a neck injury that's serious enough to keep him out of the entire 2016-17 campaign at the least. With that in mind it's not clear what the future holds for Smid, though the Flames might have some scouting work available for him.

Ladislav Smid (neck) will miss the entire 2016-17 campaign.

Smid had no points in 22 games last season. He has just one season left on his four-year, $14 million contract with the Calgary Flames, so it wouldn't be surprising if he's played in his last game with the club. The question is if he's played in his last game entirely. The fact that he's been ruled out for the entire season in September speaks to the seriousness of his condition, but he's still just 30 years old.

There's a bit of good news surrounding the injured (neck) Ladislav Smid.

According to a team source, it's "unlikely" that he'll need neck surgery. The veteran defender hasn't played since Feb. 17th, and saw just 22 games all season primarily due to injury or injury-related issues. He's not out of the woods yet, but good news is good news any day of the week.

Ladislav Smid has been placed on the injured reserve list.

This move is presumably retroactive to Wednesday. It's not clear how long Smid will be sidelined for, but at the least this rules him out for Calgary's next three games.

Ladislav Smid left Wednesday's game against the Wild after taking a hit in the second period.

The team's Twitter account is calling it an "upper body injury." He was ridden into the boards awkwardly in the first period. The Flames are suddenly very thin on the back end with the Wideman suspension and this could be a big blow if he has to miss significant time.

With Deryk Engelland being pushed up to forward, Ladislav Smid will slide into Calgary's third pairing Tuesday.

Ladislav Smid is a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Dallas Stars.

Smid has been a healthy scratch in six of Calgary's last eight games. He doesn't have any fantasy value as he's still hasn't registered a point in 14 games this season. Brandon Bollig and Mason Raymond will also serve as healthy scratches.

Ladislav Smid will see his 10th game of the season on Sunday against Detroit.

It's been a tough road back from injury for Smid, who has yet to register a point this season. He does however have 17 hits and 18 blocks, so from a fantasy perspective he has a tough of production to his name.
