Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Friday that defenseman Kimmo Timonen is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Holmgren said he expects Timonen to be back at practice Monday. The Flyers don't play again until Oct. 24, at home against the New York Rangers.

Timonen left the Flyers' 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday with 5:56 remaining in the second period.

The 38-year-old defenseman has no points and a minus-2 rating in eight games. He's third on the team with an average of 20:37 of ice time per game.

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
