Philadelphia forward Wayne Simmonds left Friday night's game in Washington late in the first period with an injury and didn't return.

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced during the second period that Simmonds is unlikely to return to the game.

Simmonds went down by the hashmarks after taking what looked like a high elbow from Capitals defenseman John Erskine with 1:46 left in the first period. No penalty was called.

Simmonds came into the game leading the Flyers in scoring through seven games with five points, including two goals, while averaging 18:04 of ice time.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
