Jiri Hudler's return to the Flames is up in the air because he's still in the Czech Republic for his father's funeral.
The service was Friday, but he's not going to be forced back anytime soon. Obviously, he's in a very tough situation," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said. "I guess he was raised by his dad, so it's one of those situations where time (taken) is not a factor." Hudler was signed to a four-year, $16 million contract in the offseason.
