A deflected puck went into the Calgary Flames team bench and hit coach Bill Peters directly on the jaw during Sunday's game against the Arizona Coyotes:

Peters was taken into the locker room immediately after the incident.

According to Ryan Leslie of Sportsnet, he is getting stitches and will be OK.

The 53-year-old coach is in his first year with the team after four years with the Carolina Hurricanes and has found some early success. The team entered the day with 27 points in 23 games, good for second place in the Pacific Division.

Calgary is off until Wednesday's game against the Dallas Stars, which gives Peters a few days to recover at home before potentially returning to the bench.
