Niittymaki Suffers Torn Labrum

via TSN,
Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Antero Niittymaki suffered a torn labrum in his left hip during Tuesday's morning practice. "Antero Niittymaki tore the labrum in his left hip today at the morning skate," said Flyers GM Bobby Clarke. "The MRI shows that there is a tear and the MRI will be sent overnight to Dr. Thomas Byrd in Nashville, Tennessee. We won't know if surgery is necessary until tomorrow afternoon. If surgery is necessary, it will be six to eight weeks before he is back playing."
