Matt Read (lower body, foot) is day-to-day; will play today (Nov. 29)
A late announcement tonight.



Raffl will replace the injured Matt Read, who didn't practice Monday nor skated at the morning skate today.

Read is dealing with a lower-body injury. According to General Manager Paul Holmgren, Read is day-to-day.

[Raffl's] the type of player who can move up and down the lineup, Berube said. He played with [Claude] Giroux for a while and looked good there and Giroux liked playing with him. Hes been on the checking line, on the fourth line Whatever line hes on hes helped out the line.

Hes been very good. Hes a positive kid and a happy kid who works hard and loves being around the team. We really like him and were going to get him in there. Everybody wants to play and contribute but sometimes you have to be patient.

The Flyers did consider sending him down to the Phantoms for some game action, but felt that he was still benefitting plenty from practicing regularly with the team.

Hes our only extra forward and we need an extra forward up here, Berube said. I think hes still developing even though hes not playing. Hes doing a lot of good stuff in practice. Hes getting used to the pace even if its just practice. Right now I dont see [him having been out of the lineup] being a problem.

Boo. Hope it's not too serious.

Well **** balls...

He had a near-equal balance of shifts in the game against Florida: 7-8-7 by period.

Apparently, it was from a blocked shot in that game.

TP is going to use this post as an "anonymous source" in his next article.

Turned on the game and was pleased to see Raffl playing.

Then I saw Rosehill on the bench and realized someone was injured.

Matt Read told me he blocked a shot vs. FLA. Skate boot doesnt fit. Swollen and bruised. Hopes to play FRI

FreshPerspective 11-27-2013 08:23 PM

Hopefully he can get back in there. He is sorely missed...

GoneFullHextall 11-27-2013 09:26 PM

sounds like it was one of those things where the foot swelled up after the skate came off after the Florida game. Im guessing its just a bruise. I would think if was broken we would of heard something by now.

oh wait. nmind.

Any news on if he will be good for today or tomorrow?

It'll probably be determined when he gets to the arena. There was no practice yesterday because of the holiday.

He is going to take part in today's pregame skate to determine his status.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 11:42 PM.
