Unfortunate news comes out of Flyers practice

The Philadelphia Flyers will look for their fourth straight win on Monday night as they look to take down the lowly Arizona Coyotes at the Wells Fargo Center at 7:00p.m. EST. Before the Flyers hit the ice, the team held morning practice in Voorhees, but one Flyer was not a participant that has fans concerned for his future status.

After throwing his body in front of a screaming shot in Saturday night's win against the Seattle Kraken, 22-year-old right wing Tyson Foerster was seen leaving the arena with a walking boot on. As the Flyers took the ice on Monday morning for practice, Foerster was not a participant.


The Flyers haven't officially released any information as far as how long or the severity of his injury, but on ESPN Foerster is currently listed as day-to-day, so it appears that Foerster is at least going to be out for tonight's home matchup against the Coyotes.



With the Flyers not playing until Thursday, having Tuesday and Wednesday off, it makes sense for Tortorella to give Foerster the night off and let him recover as much as possible.

As the schedule in March doesn't get any easier, the Flyers are going to need guys like Foerster who have been producing as of late. Foerster was heating up offensively, scoring three goals in his past four games, including two goals against the Boston Bruins in the final game before the All-Star break.
