April 20 update: JVR removed from LTIR, will play tonight (foot surgery, March 6)

March 2, 2011 update:


James van Riemsdyk will undergo surgery to repair a broken bone in his left foot on March 6 and is expected to miss four to six weeks, according to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.
Chronology, March and April 2012:
  • March 1 -- Blocked a shot vs. NYI and did not return.
  • March 6 -- Had surgery due to a broken bone in his left foot; out 4-to-6 weeks.
  • March 8 -- Was placed on the LTIR.
  • March 26 -- Was seen at a home game still in a walking boot.
  • April 6 -- Visited doctor for possible cast removal.
  • April 9 or 10 -- First day of skating.
  • April 14 -- Met with media after skating. From Tim P. @ CSN: "JVR is still wearing protective gear, such as a shell on his left skate boot during practice, and has a modified walking boot. In other words, while he is skating, he is likely not at 100 percent. Yet."
  • April 17 -- Skated at practice on rotating lines. One set included JVR, Read and Rinaldo.
  • April 19 -- Practiced on a line with Read and Voracek. A possibility of return for Game 5 at Pittsburgh.
  • April 20 -- Removed from LTIR.
