Tuesday, Sept. 6:
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren was injured in a bicycle accident at the South Jersey shore on Monday, Sept. 5.

Holmgren released the following statement to the media early this morning: “[I am] sore, but otherwise in good spirits.”

President & Chief Operating Officer of Comcast-Spectacor Peter A. Luukko also gave the following statement and account of what happened:

“It appears that he might have hit a rut or something as he was biking in Avalon. I know Paul, he’s pretty fast on that bike so he probably went over pretty hard. The good news is that it’s certainly nothing life-threatening and we’ll have him back."

“He has some broken ribs, broken shoulder and some stitches on his leg and arm, but Paul’s tough so he’ll be right back in the game.”
