The Philadelphia Flyers goaltending situation became a little cloudy with the announcement that Michael Leighton is now expected to be out of the Flyers line-up for a month with a bulging disc in his back. Leighton has not spent much time on the ice during camp or the preseason. This currently leaves Brian Boucher as the top dog for the moment in the net, with the back-up situation still up in the air.
The Flyers also announced that they will be without veteran forward Ian Laperriere for an indefinite period of time, because he is suffering from post-concussion syndrome. There is no timetable for his return and he will now open up a spot in the line-up, likely for some of their youth to jump in.
