SCHULTZ OUT WITH LOWER BODY INJURY
Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced just prior to the Flyers-Devils game at the PPL Center in Lehigh Valley that defenseman Nick Schultz will be out of action for 4-7 days with a lower-body injury.
Schultz appeared in one preseason game, the club's 4-0 win on Tuesday vs. NY Islanders, where he logged 17:21 of ice time on 23 shifts and three blocked shots.
Hextall also added that on Thursday the training camp roster will be reduced further to somewhere around 15 players. "We're going to try and get down to a manageable practice roster."
