During last night’s embarrassing 2-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues, Travis Konecny went awkwardly into the boards and had to leave the game. As it turns out, he suffered a left knee and ankle sprain, according to CSN’s Tim Panaccio.
The 19-year-old rookie suffered a left knee and ankle sprain, a source told CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio. Konecny’s left shoulder is OK, the source said, but he’s also in a walking boot.
After the game, Dave Hakstol said he is not concerned about losing Konecny long term — “because I don’t have any information on that,” the head coach said. He said the Flyers will know more Tuesday.
General manager Ron Hextall said the team will provide an update today on Konecny’s condition.
