  • Injury Updates (3/5/19)

    Sounds like Voracek will miss at least tomorrow night's game, Patrick may play. Hart is close to playing, not sure about game action. Neuvirth...do we really care?

    As the Flyers returned to practice on Tuesday, Flyers Executive Vice President & General Manager, Chuck Fletcher gave an update on four injured Flyers:

    CARTER HART (lower-body injury)

    "He is skating, doing very well. He will not practice with the team today, but if everything goes well with him out on the ice and off the ice today, he will join the team for the morning skate tomorrow (Mar. 6)."

    Hart has missed the last four games with a lower-body injury. Prior to his injury, he appeared in 15 of the last 18 games to help the Flyers go 11-4-0 since Jan. 10... Overall he has appeared in 22 of 30 contests since being recalled on Dec. 16, posting a 13-8-1 record with a 2.79 GAA and .917 save percentage.

    MICHAL NEUVIRTH (lower-body injury)

    "He continues to progress and will have a follow up appointment with the doctor on Friday (Mar. 8)."

    Neuvirth has been sidelined with a lower-body injury. He has appeared in seven games for the Flyers this season, posting a 1-4-1 record.



    NOLAN PATRICK (upper-body injury)

    "Is a possibility for tomorrow's game (Mar. 6). He is on the ice today skating and will be re-evaluated tomorrow (Mar. 6). We hope for him to rejoin the team on Thursday (Mar. 7) for full participation."

    Patrick was injured in the first period of the Flyers' 4-1 win at Long Island on Sunday, appearing in just two shifts for 1:36 of ice time. He has 26 points (12g-14a) in 59 games this season, including 15 points (7g-8a) in the last 21 games.



    JAKUB VORACEK (lower-body injury)

    "Jake will see the doctor tomorrow (Mar. 6) to be re-evaluated and we hope to get him back on the ice by Thursday (Mar. 7)."

    Voracek missed his first game in 242 contests on Sunday in Long Island with a lower-body injury. Prior to missing Sunday's game, he had a four-game point streak in which he averaged over two points per-game with nine points (3g-6a) in that stretch. Since returning from the All-Star and NHL bye week, Voracek has posted 20 points (7g-13a) in 17 games.

    I saw that the earliest Hart will play would be on March 14.

      I hate these reports. I wish someone on the inside would post what the injury is/was.

        From what I understand, it's just a facial laceration (ear) for Patrick that required stitches and Hart was a high ankle sprain. No idea about Voracek.

          ugh the dreaded high ankle sprain!

          more than winning we need to make sure we dont have guys with lingering issues going into next year.

            A high ankle sprain isn't a big concern for a goalie long term. If it were groin or hip flexor, I'd worry.

                They take a long time to heal, but they do not tend to re-occur

                  That's good news on Patrick with his concussion history. That was scary. Neuvirth needs to retire he just cant stay healthy. I sure hope Morin gets in soon so the Flyers and fans can finally see what this kid has. Hes still only 23 so he still has potential. Hopefully he turns into the beast he was projected to be. A big defenseman to slap Crosby and Malkin around would be sweet.

                    If / when we are officially out of the hunt...there is no excuse for not bringing in Morin..also would like to see more of Bailey...i suspect he makes Raffl expendable
