Dennis Wideman is dealing with an upper-body injury.

The Calgary Flames have ruled Wideman out for Friday and Saturday's games. He has four goals and 21 points in 46 contests in 2013-14.

Dennis Wideman recorded two assists in Calgary's 4-1 victory on Thursday.

Wideman didn't record a point in his previous five contests. He has a solid 17 points in 38 contests, but fantasy owners have also had to endure his minus-15 rating. Despite the Flames current four-game winning streak, Calgary is likely to resume its descent in the not too distant future and Wideman's plus/minus rating should go down further before the campaign's over.

Dennis Wideman logged 38:05 minutes of ice time in Calgary's 3-2 shootout loss on Saturday.

That's what happens when you engage in a line brawl just two seconds into the contest. The officials, in an effort to prevent the game from devolving further, booted four Flames players immediately following the massive melee. That force the remaining players to be leaned on extensively and Wideman was one example of that. Of course, Calgary never needs an excuse to lean on the veteran defenseman, as they already ask him to log 24:59 minutes during an average game.

Dennis Wideman (broken hand) will return on Friday.

Wideman has been out since Nov. 27. Before the injury, he was averaging 26:14 minutes per contest, so naturally his absence left the Flames with a huge void to fill. He also chips in offensively and that's crucial for Calgary right now as they have scored just one goal in their past three games.

Dennis Wideman (broken hand) is expected to play on Friday according to coach Bob Hartley.

Wideman broke his hand on November 27 and was expected to miss six-eight weeks so he is on the early side of the original diagnosis. He has 12 points but a minus-six rating this season in 24 games. The Flames will welcome the blueliner back as he was the Flames leader in ice time averaging 26:14 minutes before his injury. Get him back in your lineup in deeper leagues.

Dennis Wideman (broken hand) took part in Saturday's practice.

Wideman hadn't skated with his teammates since he sustained the injury on Nov. 27. Although this was obviously a step in the right direction, it's worth noting that he was wearing a non-contact jersey. He might be able to return in about a week, but there's no firm timetable.

Dennis Wideman potted his second goal of the season Saturday in a 4-2 loss to the lowly Edmonton Oilers.

Wideman has 12 points this season and is a good two-three blueliner in most deeper leagues. His plus/minus will take a hit in Calgary as they are likely a bottom three NHL team this season but he will perform well on the power play and should get 45-50 points if he can stay healthy.

Dennis Wideman had two assists Saturday in the win over Washington.

Wideman played an amazing 29:17 minutes in the win. He now has a goal and seven points in 11 games with a plus-three rating. He should be on someone's roster in all but the shallowest of pools.

Dennis Wideman ranks second in the NHL with an average of 27:46 minutes per game.

Wideman has a goal and three points in five games this season. "He's been definitely one of our best players," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. "His experience, also his presence in the locker room, here's a guy that knows the game very well. He's taking care of his partners. He's taking care of the kids on the team. He's an offensive defensemen, but I think what we're forgetting to talk about is the way he's really committed to the game and three zones." He won't maintain his current minutes per game pace, but he will continue to log plenty of ice time.
