BREAKING: Flyers receive encouraging news ahead of Stadium Series

Published February 17, 2024 at 9:33

Later tonight the Philadelphia Flyers will take the ice for their first Stadium Series matchup since 2019 as they will take on rival New Jersey Devils at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. After a scare in Thursday's loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Flyers received encouraging injury news ahead of Saturday's matchup regarding two key players.

On Thursday night in his first game since being named the 20th team captain in Flyers history, Sean Couturier seemed to have tweaked something in his leg in the third period as he came up gimpy after handling the puck and was unable to play in the overtime period.

As the Flyers took the ice for practice at MetLife Stadium on Friday afternoon, the Flyers captain was not only on the ice, but was one of the first ones out there skating around.

Along with captain coots, Flyers youngster Cam York also suffered a scary injury on Thursday as Toronto Maple Leafs defender Simon Benoit laid a big hit on York, sending him into the boards in a painful sight as a scum ensued as Nic Deslauriers came to York's defense.

York was also one of the first Flyers on the ice for practice at MetLife on Saturday, dressed in full gear including the special edition Stadium Series jerseys which the Flyers will be wearing under the bright lights.

Puck drop is set for 8:00p.m. EST on ABC.
