Brian Elliotte Out 5-6 Weeks After Core Muscle Surgery

from the Phiadelphia Flyers,

Prior to tonight's game, Philadelphia Flyers GM Ron Hextall announced to the media an update on the condition of goaltender Brian Elliott:

"Brian Elliott had successful core muscle surgery this morning," said Hextall. "He's expected to be out 5-6 weeks."

Elliott suffered the injury in Saturday's Flyers-Coyotes game at Arizona. He appeared in all 65 minutes through regulation and overtime where he made 24 saves. He then faced two skaters in the shootout before being forced out of the game with the injury. Back up Michal Neuvirth came in relief of Elliott in the shootout and secured the win.

Elliott has received a majority of the starts this season, his first with the Flyers, since signing with the club during free agency this past summer.

Adam Kimmelman tweet,

Flyers GM Ron Hextall intimates he’s OK going with Michal Neuvirth and Alex Lyon while Brian Elliott is out, but if he does bring in a goalie he said it would be one without much/any contract term remaining beyond this season
