Rookie forward Sven Baertschi will not be suiting up with the Calgary Flames for at least the next week.

The club announced on Thursday that the 20-year-old is week-to-week with a hip flexor injury that he suffered after falling in practice on Tuesday.

"I was skating and my left skate seemed to have caught a rut in the ice and my legs kind of went into a splits position," Baertschi told Calgary Flames.com. "I felt pain immediately and left the ice to have it checked. It's very disappointing to learn that it's a hip flexor injury that will keep me out of the line-up."

Baertschi, who has no points in four games this season, hopes to not be sidelined very long.

"I've started treatments and plan on working very hard at getting back to 100% as quickly as possible so I can help our team be successful and win games."
