CALGARY - The inquiring minds were mostly the usual suspects but, just in case, Bob Hartley figured he'd remind everybody of his job title at the Saddledome.

"I'm a coach," Hartley said. "I'm not a doctor."

The Calgary Flames coach says rookie winger Sven Baertschi is "very doubtful" for Thursday's tilt with the Colorado Avalanche at the Saddledome (7 p.m. MST, SN West).

The doctors will determine exactly how long a lower-body injury will keep the talented 20-year-old off the ice.
