Philadelphia Flyers forward Tye McGinn had surgery Thursday to repair a fractured right orbital bone, CSN Philadelphia reported Saturday.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said McGinn would be out four weeks. The Flyers were hopeful they could get the rookie back in two weeks without surgery.

McGinn was injured Feb. 25 in a fight with Mike Brown of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Flyers acquired forward Simon Gagne in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 26, in part to replace McGinn.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
