CALGARY – NHL linesman Don Henderson is suing defenceman Dennis Wideman and the Calgary Flames for $10.25 million over a hit from behind during a game against the Nashville Predators.

Henderson says in a statement of claim that he suffered a concussion and injuries to his neck and back.

He also claims he suffered shock, anxiety, depression, headaches and permanent and partial disability.

The Flames would not comment on the lawsuit when contacted Thursday.

Statements of claim contain allegations that have not been proven in court.

Henderson was hurt during the second period of Calgary’s 2-1 loss to Nashville on Jan. 27, 2016.
