Just as the new shortened NHL season has begun, the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday were dealt some bad news as forward Scott Hartnell will be out indefinitely with an injury to his left foot.
The news was posted just after 6 p.m. on the team's official website.
"Scott will be out indefinitely with a left foot injury," a statement from Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren read. "We will know more on this within a day or two as we await results of tests."
The Flyers opened their season on Saturday to a loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Two other losses followed.
The team's next game is Thursday against the New York Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center.
Waking up to dense fog today. Poor visibility slowing us down.
But at least it's mild. Temps are about 15-degrees above average today, despite the continued clouds & drizzle. High in the lower 60s.
Our next cold front comes through tomorrow, with rain, especially on Friday afternoon. With the blast of cold air that follows, we'll probably have a dry day on Saturday, and the chance of a Sunday wintry mix into the afternoon and evening. Stay tuned!
