Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced that defenseman Mark Streit will be out two weeks with an upper-body injury.

Streit leads the Flyers defense in goals (5) and is tied on the team's defense in points (16) with Shayne Gostisbehere, who missed Sunday's game at Detroit with an upper-body injury.

Streit has averaged nearly 20 minutes per game at 19:52, including 2:23 on the team's power play. He is one of two Flyers defensemen to appear in all 31 games so far for the Flyers (Ivan Provorov). 

In his fourth season with the Flyers, Streit has appeared in 256 games, posting 30 goals and 105 assists for 135 points, and currently serves as one of the club's alternate captains alongside Wayne Simmonds.

The Flyers next take on the Colorado Avalanche in Denver on Wednesday (10 p.m. ET, TCN & 93.3 WMMR). 

They are currently on a nine-game winning streak and will look for their 10th straight victory for the first time since they set a franchise-record 13-game winning streak, from Oct. 19 - Nov. 17, 1985.
