Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren released the following statement regarding left wing Simon Gagne, who saw a doctor on Wednesday in Denver, Colorado:
"Simon was seen by Dr. [Jim] Kelly today. His advice to Simon was to shut it down for the remainder of the season. As soon as we have had the opportunity to speak further with Dr. Kelly and Simon, we can shed more light on this. Needless to say, we are very disappointed with this news."
Gagne has been in and out of the lineup this season due to concussion problems. In 25 games, he has seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points and four penalty minutes. He had 88 goals in the previous two seasons combined.
