VOORHEES, N.J. --
One week after absorbing a scary hit from Detroit's Niklas Kronwall
, Flyers forward Jakub Voracek
says he will be back in the Flyers' lineup when his team hosts the New Jersey Devils
He missed three games with a concussion, and said he's happy to be back after so short an absence.
"It wasn't great to sit out three games, but there was nothing I could do about it," he said after the morning skate. "I think after the hit I'm pretty happy I'm back in a week. Hopefully we're going to get a win and get it rolling again."
He skated at right wing on a line centered by Danny Briere
, with rookie Eric Wellwood
at left wing.
Here's the rest of the Flyers' lineup, based on their morning skate:
- Claude Giroux
- Jaromir Jagr
- Brayden Schenn
- Wayne Simmonds
- Danny Briere
- Jakub Voracek
- Sean Couturier
- Zac Rinaldo
- Matt Carle
- Nicklas Grossmann
- Erik Gustafsson
will start in goal, with Sergei Bobrovsky
, who has missed the last three games with an upper-body injury, skated with the team at the morning skate, but will not play. Rookie defenseman Brandon Manning
and veteran forward Jody Shelley
will be healthy scratches.
