From the Sports Network via WJAC,
Struggling to get into the postseason, the Philadelphia Flyers learned on Monday that defenseman Derian Hatcher will be out for the season with a fractured right tibia and forward R.J. Umberger will miss the next two weeks with a sprained MCL.
Hatcher was hurt with 12:07 left in the first period of Saturday’s 3-2 overtime loss to Boston while blocking a slap shot by Bruins forward Andrew Ference. Hatcher was helped off the ice and did not return. The right leg was broken just above the ankle and was placed in a cast on Saturday. It is possible he might return to play if the Flyers make the postseason.
