Konecny's Absence May Extend to Season Opener



Travis Konecny's absence from the scrimmage could potentially stretch until the Flyers' season opener on October 12th.

The team is taking a cautious approach, given that Konecny missed a significant portion of last season (22 games) due to a major injury. The priority is ensuring he's fully recovered and ready for the start of the regular season.

The Flyers' head coach wouldn't specify if the injury was upper or lower body but said it's not serious. Konecny will probably get another day off the ice Monday for precaution.


The 26-year-old had been skating on a line with Sean Couturier and Owen Tippett, the Flyers' projected first line to open camp and the preseason.

The Flyers obviously have zero reason to rush Konecny back to the ice. It's all about having him ready for the Oct. 12 regular-season opener.


This decision underscores the Flyers' commitment to Konecny's long-term health and performance on the ice.
