Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced this afternoon that forward Travis Konecny will be out 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury.
Konecny was injured in Monday's loss vs. St. Louis, appearing in 8:13 of ice time on 10 shifts through the first two periods, recording one shot on goal and blocking two shots.
The 19-year-old rookie has posted seven goals and 15 assists for 22 points, which is tied for fifth on the team in scoring, while averaging 14:36 of ice time through 51 games.
Konecny made the season opening roster from training camp after three seasons in the OHL (Ottawa & Sarnia) and made his NHL debut on Oct. 14 at LA where he posted two assists. He has yet to miss any time this season due to injury and has missed just three of the club's 54 games this season as a healthy scratch (Dec. 30 at San Jose, Feb. 2 vs. Montreal & Feb. 4 vs. LA Kings).
With a complete day off from the rink on Tuesday, the Flyers resume practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ on Wednesday. The Flyers continue their five-game homestand on Thursday when they take on the New York Islanders in an important Metropilitan Division matchup. (7 p.m. on TCN & 93.3 WMMR).
