Flames F Ferland under observation for mumps

Canucks, Wild dealt with mump outbreaks this year

CALGARY, Alberta - Calgary Flames forward Micheal Ferland was held out of Sunday's game with the Los Angeles Kings for fear he has the mumps.

The Flames tweeted prior to the game that the 24-year-old left-winger is "under observation for the mumps."

Ferland has 14 goals and 21 points in 67 games and was elevated to Calgary's first line as of late, playing with center Sean Monahan and right winger Johnny Gaudreau.

Several members of the Vancouver Canucks and Minnesota Wild were diagnosed with the mumps earlier this season and in 2014, 14 players including stars Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks and Ryan Suter of the Minnesota Wild were diagnosed with the contagious illness.
