Brian Elliott to miss 5-6 weeks with core injury

It was reported earlier this afternoon that Flyers’ goaltender Brian Elliott underwent successful core muscle surgery.


The timetable to return is 5-6 weeks. This translates to roughly 20 games. Unless the Flyers make a splash at the deadline for a goaltender they will rely (heavily) on Michal Neuvirth and Alex Lyon until mid-late March.

Stay tuned to for more updates!
