Tyler Pitlick will not be available for the start of Philadelphia Flyers training camp after having surgery last week to repair a tear in his left wrist.
The 27-year-old forward was injured during offseason training. He will begin rehab Sept. 2 and is expected to be out approximately four weeks, the Flyers said.
Pitlick was acquired in a trade from the Dallas Stars for forward Ryan Hartman on June 24. Chosen by the Edmonton Oilers in the second round (No. 31) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Pitlick has 53 points (33 goals, 20 assists) in 185 games with the Oilers and Stars. A wrist injury limited him to 47 games last season. He has one season remaining on a three-year, $3 million contract and can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, 2020.
