Updated injuries through January 12

When camp commences, updates will be issued. Until then, what is currently provided:

Danny Briere
Quote:
VOORHEES, N.J. -- Barring a complete turnaround with his injured left wrist, Danny Briere could miss the shortened-season opener on Jan. 19.

At most, he guesses, maybe a week of the season.

Because the new CBA has not been ratified, Briere can’t be examined by any of the Flyers’ team doctors. His appointment with a hand specialist has been moved to Saturday.

Briere jammed and badly sprained his left wrist on a hit in Germany two weeks ago.

“I haven’t skated for the last 10 days because of the wrist injury,” Briere said. “I really believe when I am ready to play, I won’t be too far behind having a chance to stay in shape. Playing real hockey and competitive games for three months has put me in hockey shape. Missing maybe [some time], I should be OK.”

Quote:
Danny Briere (sprained wrist, bone bruise) will be seen by a hand specialist. He might miss the start of the regular season and will certainly miss much or all of the abbreviated training camp that could start on Sunday or Monday. However, the injury is not believed to a long-term issue -- so long as the initial diagnosis was correct.

Marc-Andre Bourdon
Quote:
has post-concussion syndrome.

Quote:
Marc-Andre Bourdon has been scratched with an "illness" since waking up not feeling well on Dec. 1. He has been down in Philadelphia also seeing the Flyers doctors for the past week.

Holmgren said Bourdon is being treated for "concussion symptoms" and is seeing a neuropsychologist in addition to the team doctors.

Claude Giroux

Quote:
Homer said if season started Jan. 19, Claude Giroux would be in lineup. "He's fine," he said.

Erik Gustafsson

Quote:
Do not look for young defenseman Erik Gustafsson to immediate compete for a spot on the Flyers' starting blueline. The player, who has an injury variously described as either a high ankle issue and/or a foot bone bruise, suffered a setback late last week after returning to practice for two days.

According to a report in the Saratogian, Gustafsson is now back to walking on crutches. He was scheduled to be examined this week by Flyers team doctors.

Ben Holmstrom
Quote:
Per Paul Holmgren, Ben Holmstrom had ACL reconstruction of right knee performed by Dr. Deluca. Recovery time is 4-6 months.
Source: The official Twitter page of the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey Club, late December 2012.

Quote:
Ben Holmstrom had surgery on his right knee on Thursday afternoon to repair damage to the cartilage and determine damage to the ACL. The ligament was about 90 percent torn, according to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

Dr. Peter DeLuca at Methodist Hospital in Philadelphia reconstructed the ACL and Holmstrom will be out four to six months to recover. This is the second time Holmstrom has torn the right ACL; the first was at age 17.

Holmstrom felt something in his knee while dumping the puck into offensive zone during the second period on Dec. 8, a 4-3 shootout win over Syracuse. He went down to Philadelphia to see the Flyers team doctors five days later, but had to wait until Thursday for the swelling to go down to have the surgery.

Andreas Lilja

Quote:
In addition, the work stoppage has helped Andreas Lilja, a depth defenseman who will battle for a third-pairing spot, recover from hip surgery. Lilja has been cleared to play.

Andrej Meszaros
Quote:
Defenseman Andrej Meszaros' health will play a major role in how the Flyers start the shortened season.

A doctor on Monday cleared Meszaros for full activity, general manager Paul Holmgren said.

"We'll see how he does once practices start," Holmgren said when asked if he expected Meszaros to start the season.

Meszaros had surgery on his right Achilles tendon in the offseason. He has made major strides, but said he sometimes has problems pushing off. "It's a matter of time before I get my strength back," he said after an informal practice Monday in Voorhees.

Quote:
Meszaros is recovering from a torn right Achilles tendon suffered last summer, and subsequent surgery.

Could he play right now?

“I don’t know,” Meszaros said after a player scrimmage Monday. “It’s tough to say. I really didn’t have a full practice with everything. Or a scrimmage.

“The speed of the game … it’s a great tempo but it’s not – I have to try it. Once we start practicing with the whole team and do scrimmages, then I can actually say whether I can. I can’t really tell right now.”

Chris Pronger

Quote:
Philadelphia Flyers captain Chris Pronger will join his team at training camp, although he will not participate in on-ice activities due to the fact he has not been cleared by doctors to play hockey.

Pronger, 38, has not played since November 2011 due to post-concussion syndrome and it is unclear if the former Hart and Norris Trophy winner will ever play in the National Hockey League again. Indications are that it's unlikely he will ever return to the ice.

There is still five years remaining on Pronger's contract with a salary cap hit of over $4.9 million each season.

Quote:
Chris Pronger has been living in St. Louis the last several weeks...experienced good and bad days..still not fully over concussion
Source: Andy Strickland, January 6 ( https://twitter.com/andystrickland)

Quote:
According to a report from SportsNet Canada’s Dan Murphy, Pronger will not be on the ice but will still attend the Flyers’ condensed training camp when it commences this week.

Tom Sestito
Quote:
Sestito will miss the start of camp. He was recently diagnosed with a case of the mumps.

Quote:
Apparently, Sestito has been over the mumps for a little bit.
Source: Sam Carchidi, January 10

Quote:
“All gone,” Sestito said. “Just my luck. I lost a lot of weight. It was very painful, some days I couldn’t move. A lot of what I lost was muscle, so I can get that back.”

Sestito, 25, played 14 games with the Flyers last season. He’s a beast of a man - checking in at 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds - and he’s competing with Scott Laughton, Eric Wellwood, Tye McGinn and Zac Rinaldo for the two final spots on the roster when training camp opens on Sunday.

There is no treatment for the mumps, other than a medical steroid to help soothe the swelling. The virus has to run its course - and it never totally leaves your body.

“I still don’t feel totally right, but you’re only contagious for 12 days. We’re well past that,” Sestito said. “I’m looking forward to getting back on the ice. I’m ready to get back into things. Safe to say, though, that I'm not going to be spending my vacation dollars to go back to England.”

Kimmo Timonen

Quote:
Timonen had offseason back surgery. Since he's been with the Flyers, Timonen has suffered numerous injuries, from a blood clot in his ankle to a hip flexor. He is thought to have finished last season with a knee injury.

There was some thought that Timonen might be aided by more time to rest from hip surgery, to let his body fully heal. Instead, Timonen views a condensed season as a threat to his longevity, since an 82-game slate would have had at least a few breaks in between.

"After back surgery, I'm sure [time off] helped," Timonen said. "But it's going to be 48 or 50 games in 95 days. It might be tougher, actually. We'll see once we get into it and play a few games, but I feel pretty good right now."

Timonen seemed fine at operation hat trick. Hope he's good to go.

Ya, Giroux was interviewed on TSN and he said he was good to go whenever the season started up


What about Bryzgalov?

Did the time off fix Bryz's craziness?

I just saw that clip again, where Grabovski hit Pronger in the face with his stick last season.

Sends chills down my spine every time. Seeing a guy who you KNOW is extremely tough screaming and his hands shaking is tough.

I'm hoping he can make a full recovery, even if he doesn't play again.

Good luck this season guys.

Sestito is a victim of bad luck once again - last year he looked like he was going to make the team out of camp, then was suspended for a hit in a preseason game and never really got a long look in the NHL.

This year, he is laid up with the mumps. That's right, the mumps. I haven't heard of anyone having the mumps since 1979. Maybe it's just me though.
Why is this the first I'm hearing of this?
