For whatever reason, Herr Lavy would have none of that and didn't put him on the ice again in that game and not since then. And, as others have noted, the Flyers' offense looks no better, if not worse, without him out there. But it's all pointless now, Zherdev won't be playing again for the Flyers.
No worries. Shelley wouldn't have been half way to that puck skating at full speed. He is good for losing fights to people his own size and taking draws to lightweights, though.
