Philadelphia Flyers Max Talbot suffers broken leg; out indefinitely.

The injuries keep coming for the Philadelphia Flyers.

The club announced Monday morning that center Max Talbot is out indefinitely with a broken leg. Talbot suffered the injury during the second period of a win against the Capitals on Sunday.

Talbot took a total of 12 shifts and appeared in 9:39 of ice-time while recording a goal in the first period that knotted the game up at 1-1 before the Flyers took a 5-4 decision in overtime.

One of just five Flyers to play in all 35 games this season, Talbot has 10 points and leads the team in shorthanded time-on-ice per game this season (3:28).

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
