Paul Byron's injury has been termed a "whole-body" issue by Flames coach Bob Hartley.

Byron is on the injured reserve list, although because that move was likely retroactive to Feb. 16, he can be activated at any time. He is trying with the Flames on their current road trip and should be regarded as day-to-day for now.

Paul Byron (undisclosed) is unable to play in Wednesday’s game against Minnesota.

Paul Byron is having great difficulty scoring on breakaways this season.

Byron has scored only once despite numerous opportunities. "This has never happened to me in my life before. Normally, I used to be pretty good on breakaways, and for whatever reason, this year, they just aren’t going in," Byron said. "The key is just try to take the positive out of it — that I’m getting (breakaways) — and try not to mentally take myself down. Because if you think you’re not going to score, you’re not. I think it’s just a matter of time before one of them finally goes in." Byron has five goals and 14 points this season in 49 games so his fantasy value is negligible.

Paul Byron scored a goal and an assist in Calgary's 4-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

It was the third multi-point game for Byron this season. The 25-year-old has been sneaky-productive this season. He has five goals this season and is on pace to hit the 20-goal mark. Odds are he won't keep producing at this pace, but he could be a decent add in deeper fantasy leagues.

Paul Byron scored once on Saturday to give him three goals in his last two games.

Byron now has four goals and four assists this season and what made Saturday's goal especially sweet was that he did it against his hometown Ottawa Senators. Byron had seven goals and 21 points in 47 games last season and now has eight in 19 games in 2014-15. He is a fringe fantasy player in deep leagues but kudos if you had him in your lineup this week.

Paul Byron scored two goals in Calgary’s 5-3 win over Arizona on Thursday.

Byron only had one goal coming into this game, so no one could have expected this kind of offensive contribution from him tonight. The 25-year-old opened the scoring in the first period and then gave the Flames a 2-1 lead in the second frame. Byron now has seven points in 18 games this season. He can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Paul Byron scored a goal in Calgary's 4-2 loss on Wednesday.

Byron had seven goals and 21 points in 47 games last season. He's worth keeping an eye on because he's playing alongside the talented Johnny Gaudreau, but we can't recommend picking up Byron at this time.

Paul Byron didn't get a qualifying offer from the Flames, so he can become an unrestricted free agent.

He shared time with Calgary and in the minors with Abbotsford during the 2013-14 season. Byron had seven goals and 21 points in 47 NHL outings this past campaign.

Paul Byron picked up a five minute major for boarding and a game misconduct for his hit on Daniel Sedin Sunday.

Byron could be hearing from the NHL for the hit as this is frowned upon and rightly so. "I didn't think it was a dirty hit. That wasn't my intention at all. I hope he's OK," Byron said. Stay tuned.

Paul Byron returned to action Friday night against the Jets.

He missed Wednesday's game to be with his wife for the birth of their second child. Byron registered an assist in the 5-3 loss to Winnipeg and now has 21 points in 46 games this season.

Paul Byron skipped Wednesday's game to be with his wife for the birth of their child.

Congratulations to Byron and his growing family. It's not clear yet if Byron will be available for Friday's game, but we think he probably will end up playing.
