Flyers End Of Season Injury Report To Be Released Next Week, According To Report
On Thursday afternoon, many expected that the Philadelphia Flyers were going to officially announce their end of season injury report. It is largely assumed that the team is going to have quite a lengthy list, which has led to quite a bit of intrigue as to who will appear on it.
Unfortunately, as of Thursday's end of season media availability session Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was unable to release the list.
“Well the actual exit medicals aren’t until tonight so I don’t really have the complete list,” he said to reporters. “I’ll get that to you guys as soon as I have it, but there will be a few guys who will need some surgeries.”
As of Friday afternoon, the Flyers have yet to release the names and it appears as though that list will not be produced until sometime next week. Apparently there are so many players who potentially need offseason treatment that the evaluations haven’t been completely finished yet.
Apparently, #Flyers have so many potential surgeries that they won't be able to sort out until next week.

According to NBC 10’s Howard Eskin, the team has up to nine players who will need surgery including Kimmo Timonen and James van Riemsdyk.

In a report earlier this week, it came out of Sweden that Nicklas Grossmann was going to be unable to play for Team Sweden due to the possibility of an offseason surgery. It is still unconfirmed as to whether that will actually be happening.
Early Friday morning, Bill Meltzer of Hockey Buzz confirmed that Jakub Voracek was not going to join the Czech Republic’s team at the World Championships because of a shoulder injury. He also revealed that the Kladno native needed cortisone injections in the playoffs (however, it was not confirmed as to when he started taking them.)
It’s still unclear as to whether he will need any kind of offseason surgery.
It's official that Jakub Voracek will not be able to play for Czechs at Worlds b/c of his shoulder injury. Took cortisone injections in PO.
