Flyers' Coburn, MacDonald out; Lecavalier skates

Friday, 10.24.2014 / 5:46 PM / News

NHL.com

Philadelphia Flyers defensemen Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald each will miss approximately four weeks because of lower-body injuries, the Flyers announced Friday.

Coburn has not played since sustaining a lower-body injury during the Flyers' opening-night loss to the Boston Bruins, but had traveled with the team during its recent three-game road trip with the hope of him returning. He had taken part in the morning skate Oct. 18 before the Flyers' 6-5 overtime win against the Dallas Stars, and again Oct. 21 at the Chicago Blackhawks.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said Coburn had a setback in his recovery, according to NJ.com.

MacDonald has three points in seven games and is second in average ice time per game at 22:55.

The absences of Coburn and MacDonald, in addition to the preseason loss of Kimmo Timonen until at least January because of blood clots, leaves the Flyers without three of the top six defensemen they thought they would enter the season with.

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
