Philadelphia Flyers forward Jakub Voracek won't play Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes (1 p.m. ET; CSN-PH, NHL.TV) because of a lower-body injury, general manager Ron Hextall said Friday.
Voracek, who will be re-evaluated Monday, is second on the Flyers in scoring with 48 points (10 goals) in 60 games. He has played in 286 straight games, tying him for third all-time in franchise history with Jeff Carter.
Forward Claude Giroux who has missed the past three games with an upper-body injury, was back at practice Friday and could return to the lineup Saturday, according to Philly.com. Giroux leads the Flyers with 49 points and is third with 16 goals.
