The Calgary Flames suspect that Markus Granlund suffered a concussion against the Vancouver Canucks in Friday's exhibition.

Granlund, 21, appeared in seven games with the Flames last season, collecting three points. As the 45th pick of the 2011 NHL Draft, there may be some hope that Granlund can start making some headway toward longer-term NHL work, but this is an obvious setback.

Markus Granlund's upper-body injury is related to his shoulder.

Calgary has also placed Granlund on the injured reserve list. It's a particularly unfortunate setback for the 20-year-old because with no hope of making the playoffs, the Flames were likely going to use Granlund regularly to give him a shot of establishing himself ahead of the Flames' 2014 training camp.

Markus Granlund, who only made his NHL debut on Thursday, will get to face his brother Mikael of the Minnesota Wild on Monday.

The two teams play in Minnesota and you have to think that their parents will be watching in Finland. Markus Granlund has played only two NHL games while his highly regarded brother Mikael has struggled somewhat in his first and second seasons in the NHL but was sensational during the Olympics as he was named to the first all-star team.
