Report: Read practicing with contact for Flyers

The Courier-Post is reporting that Philadelphia Flyers right wing Matt Read, who has been sidelined since late last month with an upper body injury, is on the ice Monday practicing in a white, contact-allowed jersey, at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J.

Read suffered torn rib cage muscles on Feb. 20 against the Pittsburgh Penguins and was expected to miss six weeks.

At the time of his injury, Read had seven goals and 13 points in 18 games for the Flyers.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
