Flyers Lose Luke Schenn with Shoulder Injury
Schenn injured his shoulder when he went into the boards awkwardly after being hit by Nathan MacKinnon of the Avalanche on Saturday. The defenseman was paired with the returning Braydon Couburn, who returned to action after missing all but the opening game with a lower body injury. One Schenn was injured, Coburn was playing alongside Niklas Grossman.

Just when it looked like the Flyers defense as getting healthy, Schenn goes down, it's been that type of start to the year for Philadelphia who also announced that prospect Shayne Gostisbehere is out indefinitely with a torn ACL.
The team is hoping to get Andrew MacDonald, who has been on the ice for the last few days, back soon. MacDonald has been out of the lineup since Oct. 22 but it's an encouraging sign to see him back on the ice, he's projected to be sidelined for another two weeks based on his original timetable, but he is a bit ahead of schedule.
