Mod edit:

December 2012 update from Tim P. at CSN Philly:
  • X-rays this week to defenseman Erik Gustafsson’s right foot were negative.
  • Andreas Lilja (hip) is healthy and has been cleared to play.
  • Andrej Meszaros (left Achilles tear) has made substantial progress, and if the NHL returns to play in January, he’d likely be on the opening night roster.
  • Marc-Andre Bourdon has yet another concussion. Bourdon has had multiple concussions during his playing career. His last NHL concussion was April 11, or Game 1 of the playoffs against Pittsburgh, though it was unannounced. He had two concussions last season.
  • Ben Holmstrom’s right knee, anterior cruciate ligament surgery, out 4-to-6 weeks.
  • Chris Pronger continues to have post-concussion symptoms, but the frequency between headaches is longer, which is his only real improvement.
  • Claude Giroux, who returned to the U.S. from Germany earlier this month for a neck injury, is fine.
  • Prospect Andrew Johnston, who has been playing with the Phantoms, incurred a concussion last month, and is expected to return to the AHL lineup after Christmas.

Read Plans Södertälje Return

Unless there is a settlement to the NHL lockout by mid-January, Flyers forward Matt Read plans to return to Allsvenskan club Södertälje SK according to an announcement posted yesterday on the team's official site.

According to the team, Read has been undergoing treatment for a minor but nagging back problem. He has responded to treatment and is on track to play either in the NHL or in Sweden by the middle of January. The NHL has canceled all games through Jan. 14, and the lockout nears a point in which the entire season may be lost.

In 20 games for SSK, Read produced 24 points (6 goals, 18 assists). He is still tied for the team scoring lead with Damien Fleury, who has played in all 31 games this season.

Talbot and Gervais in Spengler Cup

The annual Spengler Cup tournament in Davos, Switzerland, is the hockey world's second-oldest on-going club-team tournament, after the Stanley Cup Playoffs. For fans, the annual six-day event at Vaillant Arena is one continuous party, on and off the ice, from the day after Christmas to New Year's Eve. But to the participating teams in the five-team invitational event, it's a grueling test of endurance to play up to five games in less than a week.

Now in its 84th edition, the 2011 tournament pits host team HC Davos against a field consisting of fellow Swiss National League A team Fribourg-Gotteron, KHL team Salavat Yualev Ufa, Czech team HC Vitkovice, Adler Mannheim from Germany's DEL and Team Canada.

Apart from a Canadian entry featuring a host of locked-out NHLers who are playing in Europe, this year's tournament features a pair of Flyers players suiting up for Fribourg-Gotteron. Both Max Talbot (who has been playing with Finnish team Ilves Tampere during the lockout) and Bruno Gervais (who had been German Bundesliga team Heilbronner Falken) signed short-term deals with Fribourg-Gotteron for the duration of the tournament.

Earlier today, Fribourg defeated Salavat Yulaev by a 5-1 score. Among his two helpers in the game, Talbot had a picturesque assist on an Andrei Bykov goal for his team's third goal of the game. Gervais also earned one assist in the match. Fribourg-Gotteron will play HC Vitkovice on Friday.
