Huberdeau left the bench for a brief moment in the first period. Sutter was questioned about it after the game.
“I think he had to go take a s—,” Sutter responded.
WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
Huberdeau was acquired from the Florida Panthers in a major offseason move that yielded the Eastern Conference team Matthew Tkachuk. The two-time All-Star spent 10 years with the Panthers and was one of their top players for a while before the trade was made.

This season, Huberdeau has one goal and four assists through seven games. He didn’t score against the Oilers on Saturday.
“We didn’t play bad. A couple bad bounces at the end and, obviously, the best player took advantage,” he said after the game.
Mikael Backlund and Brett Ritchie had goals for the Flames in the loss. Goaltender Jacob Markstrom made 22 saves in his first loss of the season. The Flames fell to 5-2-0 on the year.
