Flyers' Hartnell can practice, 7-10 days from return

PITTSBURGH -- The Philadelphia Flyers won't have to wait much longer for their leading goal-scorer from a season ago.

Wing Scott Hartnell was cleared to return to practice Wednesday and is on track to play in a game in a week to 10 days, general manager Paul Holmgren said. Hartnell missed his 15th consecutive game Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Hartnell, who had a career-high 37 goals last season, has been recovering from a broken left foot sustained in a Jan. 22 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Holmgren also updated the status of injured defenseman Andrej Meszaros.

"Andrej Meszaros continues to improve," Holmgren said Wednesday afternoon. "(He) will see the team doctor tomorrow and we should know more at that time."

Meszaros missed his 14th straight game Wednesday, out since Jan. 25 with a left shoulder injury.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
