Flyers' van Riemsdyk to miss 4-6 weeks
Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren announced Friday that forward James van Riemsdyk will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a broken bone in his left foot.

The surgery, which includes the insertion of a plate, will sideline van Riemsdyk for 4-6 weeks.

Van Riemsdyk left Thursday's victory against the New York Islanders midway through the first period after blocking a shot from the point by defenseman Milan Jurcina. Van Riemsdyk would skate one more shift, his fifth of the game, before exiting for good.

The 22-year-old van Riemsdyk has missed 20 games this season, including 15 due to a concussion, which sidelined him from Jan. 14 to Feb. 16. He has 11 goals, 24 points and 24 penalty minutes in 43 games this season.
Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
