Excerpt from Euroflyers report on Backlund's hip surgery:

Johan Backlund is still walking with crutches.

"They took an MRI from my hip and I was told that I had a cartilage in my hip joint and that I needed an operation after the season", Backlund explains. "But I was forced to keep playing because our other goalies also had injuries and it ended up making my injury worse."

The operation that was done in Nashville earlier this summer was successful. Backlund has to use crutches for five to eight weeks.

I hope he gets to play some games with the Flyers this season, and given who our goalies are, I think he might have a shot.
