Carolina Hurricanes forward Sebastian Aho is sidelined indefinitely with a concussion and a lower-body injury following a hit by Calgary Flames blue-liner Mark Giordano, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

The play occurred Sunday when Aho was driving toward the Flames' cage before he was bumped by the Flames captain. Aho left the game favoring his leg while Giordano was assessed a match penalty.

Aho's injury is a key loss for Carolina, as he leads the team with 37 points in 45 games, and with the Hurricanes in the midst of the playoff race.
