(April 2) – Flyers prospect Ryan Parent will practice with the team on Monday morning at the Virtua Health Flyers Skate Zone, according to General Manager Paul Holmgren.
Holmgren made the following statement on Sunday:
"Ryan Parent checked out fine during the brief medical [exam] he had today. Tomorrow morning he will practice with the Flyers and we'll sort of go from there. What happens after tomorrow is really up in the air basically because of the injury situation of the other defensemen."
Parent was acquired from the Nashville Predators along with Scottie Upshall and a first round draft choice in 2007 on February 15 in exchange for Peter Forsberg.
Defenseman Denis Gauthier missed Saturday's game against New York with a sprained right wrist while Derian Hatcher left that game after the second period with a left hip flexor.
