Andrej Meszaros will undergo back surgery and will miss anywhere from six-to-eight weeks of the season and most likely the first round of the playoffs. 

Meszaros is just another defender who has injury issues this season and joins Chris Pronger on the shelf for the rest of the regular season, if not longer.  Pavel Kubina and Andreas Lilja are also out with minor issues leaving the Flyers defense a bit short-handed on the blue line.
