Flyers D Meszaros out with Achilles injury

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros has undergone surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon and is out indefinitely.

Meszaros was injured last week during summer training in Slovakia, and had surgery in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement.

Meszaros missed 20 games last season and the first 10 of Philadelphia's 11 postseason games. He had back surgery on March 21, to remove a disc fragment that was impinging on a nerve root, and returned for Game 5 of the second-round series against New Jersey.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
