Following the morning skate in Colorado, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced that Matt Read will not be in the line-up vs. Avalanche.

"Matt Read will not play tonight at Colorado. He has an upper-body injury and remains day to day," said Holmgren.

Read, who did not skate with the team in the morning, appeared in 6:24 of ice-time, taking only seven shifts before leaving in the first period on Tuesday in the Flyers' 4-1 win at Calgary.|PHI|home


January 4:

Matt Read skated but did not participate in the full morning skate prior to the game. He is not expected to play at Phoenix.

January 6:

Read update
Matt Read (upper body) did not skate. A review of his last shift on the ice against Calgary shows two rather innocent checks against Read. A guess for the cause of his injury? A shoulder pinned up against the boards, but nothing that stands out on video.

January 8:

Matt Read will be out of the lineup through Sunday, at least.
