The Philadelphia Flyers will be without regular defenceman Jaroslav Modry Thursday night when they open their NHL Eastern Conference semifinal series in Montreal.
Modry will travel to the Czech Republic on Saturday for the burial of his father, Jaroslav Modry Sr., who died last week following a seven-month battle with colon cancer.
“The arrangements were set,” Flyers coach John Stevens said of Modry. “We’re going to make sure he has enough time to get back and take the time that he needs. He’ll have plenty of time to pay his respects, and then take whatever time he needs to rejoin the team.”
