Makes sense. His daughter was born with severe respiratory issues. He’s not going to chance his daughter’s life on summer hockey and not one Flames Fan has a right to be angry about it.
Good for Travis. Bad for the Flames. He’s in their top-four D and that’s a HUGE loss on the PK and PP.
Here’s the statement from his reps.

Well played. It’ll probably kill him to watch at home if the Flames go deep so that’s a big commitment you shouldn’t gloss over if you’re a Flames fan.
