Calgary Flames goaltender Jacob Markstrom suffered a fractured finger during Monday's practice and will be out week-to-week, the team announced Tuesday.

The injury won't require surgery.

Netminder Dustin Wolf has been recalled from the AHL in a corresponding move.

Markstrom has posted an .896 save percentage and a 2.94 goals against average in 16 games this season. His numbers below the surface are more impressive, as he ranks fifth among NHL goalies with 10.47 goals saved above expected, per Evolving-Hockey.

Wolf is the two-time reigning AHL goalie of the year. He owns a .920 save percentage in 13 games in the minors this season. The 22-year-old projects to split starts with Dan Vladar in Markstrom's absence.
