The news comes a day after general manager Brad Treliving said the team is optimistic that he will return to in-game action in the near future.

Brodie, 29, collapsed on the ice during a team practice on Nov. 14 and was rushed to the hospital. The team said Thursday that all medical evaluations and tests performed on Brodie in the past week have proven reassuring, but the defenseman has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to the date of the episode.

Still, the Flames confirmed that Brodie skated on his own Thursday under the supervision of medical staff and had been working out for a number of days prior — easing worries about Brodie's health after last week's scary situation.

It was reported Wednesday that Flames head coach Bill Peters said Brodie will not start with the team on an upcoming four-game road trip, but had not yet ruled out his joining before they return for their next home game on Nov. 30.

The team had previously held a press conference with GM Treliving and team doctor Ian Auld on Nov. 15 to explain what they then knew about Brodie's episode.

"All the early indications are it’s very likely more related to a fainting episode than something significant and inside the brain," Auld had told reporters.

  Flames’ update on Brodie: Tests negative, no timetable for return The Flames are still not sure what happened but so far all tests have come back negative.On Friday, the team issued an update on his status.

Flames General Manager Brad Treliving today provided the following update on defenceman TJ Brodie : " TJ has been working out for the past several days and today skated on his own under the supervision of our medical staff. calgaryflames .com is the official Web site of the Calgary Flames .

Team captain Mark Giordano told reporters that Brodie had mentioned feeling "a little bit off, lightheaded maybe" moments before he collapsed and was seen convulsing on the ice. According to Auld, the team's on-ice medical staff reached Brodie within seconds and an ambulance was called "in about 45 seconds" to take Brodie to a local hospital. Those convulsions, Auld said, certainly can be common with mere fainting episodes — and not necessarily signs of anything more serious.

"Basically, the purpose of fainting is to eliminate gravity and allow your heart to get blood to your brain," Auld said. "If there is a period of time where that doesn’t happen, the brain can go on hyperdrive, and with that can come some of the motor movements that we saw.”

CALGARY , Alberta – The Calgary Flames have signed defenseman T . J . Brodie to a five-year contract extension. Brodie is in the final year of a two-year deal signed in 2013 which paid him an average annual salary of .1 million. The 24-year-old has three goals and four assists in seven

Treliving and Auld confirmed that Brodie was not responding to questions when medical staff first reached him, but soon became conscious and was able to communicate as he was transported to the hospital. The Calgary GM said that Brodie is sore and does not remember the entire episode, but is otherwise doing well.

"Hopefully he progresses well and he’s back sooner rather than later but that’s not the focus right now," Treliving said. "The focus is making sure we go through every test. All in all, he’s in a good frame of mind."

The Athletic reported that Brodie's teammate and neighbor Sean Monahan tried to contact Brodie's wife Amber while he was on the way to the hospital — Monahan's girlfriend ultimately went right to the Brodie's door to alert his family.

Auld told reporters that lack of sleep, overtraining, certain medications, stimulants and dehydration are some — but not all — reasons why a person may experience a fainting episode. He clarified the team is still in the process of identifying the specifics of Brodie's situation but said "most of the things we need to do we can get within a week."

He added, "That’s the timeline at this point."

Treliving said that he and Auld spent the entire day at the hospital and the entire team visited Brodie at some point. While he and several Flames players reiterated how scary the incident was, seeing Brodie awake and in otherwise good spirits appeared to lighten the mood during an unusual and emotional situation for the team.

"We joked with him — it doesn’t take the guys very long, they’re saying ‘if you need the day off, you could have done it a lot easier, but thanks for giving us the day off, '" Treliving said.
