Philadelphia Flyers center Scott Laughton will miss 3-4 weeks because of a lower-body injury, and defenseman Brandon Manning is week to week because of an upper-body injury.

Laughton, 22, had four shots on goal in four preseason games. The No. 20 pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, Laughton had seven goals and 21 points in 71 games last season, the first he spent entirely in the NHL. In 107 NHL games, he has nine goals and 27 points.

Manning, 26, is a plus-1 with seven shots on goal in two preseason games. Last season, he had one goal and seven points averaging 16:21 of ice time in 56 games. It's the most extensive playing time he's had in parts of four NHL seasons, all with the Flyers.

The Flyers also announced that goaltender Steve Mason would not play against the New York Rangers in a preseason game at Madison Square Garden on Thursday because of the birth of his first child.
