Calgary Flames defenceman Chris Tanev said Saturday he suffered a dislocated shoulder during the first round of the playoffs, TSN's Salim Valji reports.

Furthermore, Tanev will undergo surgery with an expected recovery time of four-to-six months. 

Tanev, 32, left in the second period of Game 6 against the Dallas Stars on May 13.

The Toronto native returned to the lineup for Calgary to face the Edmonton Oilers in Games 4 and 5 of their second-round series.

Edmonton won the series 4-1 and will face the Colorado Avalanche in the Western Conference Finals. 

Tanev played all 82 games during the regular season and registered six goals, 22 assists, and was plus-35.

He tallied one assist in eight games during the 2021-22 playoffs. 

Valji adds that Nikita Zadorov (broken ribs), Matthew Tkachuk (hand), Oilver Kylington (shoulder), Milan Lucic (ACL joint sprain) and Andrew Mangiapane (wrist) were also dealing with injuries during the post-season, but none will require surgery.
