Flames place Jaromir Jagr on IR with lower-body injury

The Calgary Flames have placed forward Jaromir Jagr on injured reserve with a lower-body injury suffered Saturday.

Forward Mark Jankowski was recalled from the AHL's Stockton Heat in a corresponding move.

Jagr left the game against the Wild in the first period and did not return.

The 45-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Flames just before the start of the season and has played five games and put up two assists.

Jagr needs to play in 51 more games to become the all-time leader in games played, passing Gordie Howe's 1,767.

Jagr played in all 82 games last season and 79 the year before for the Panthers.

Jankowski, 23, leads the Heat with five goals in six games this season.
