Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said defenseman Nicklas Grossmann will miss at least 2-3 more weeks with concussion issues.

Holmgren said Grossmann is seeing concussion specialists in Pittsburgh for what he said were "vestibular issues."

Grossmann, who was injured during a practice last month, has not played since March 18. He has four points in 30 games but leads the team with 82 blocked shots and is fourth with 81 hits.

Holmgren also said center Danny Briere, who also sustained a concussion during a practice last month, could return to the lineup Thursday against the Ottawa Senators. Briere, who has five goals and eight assists in 26 games, has been skating for about a week.

Quote of the Day

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
