from the Philadelphia Flyers,
Flyers forward Todd Fedoruk returned to the Philadelphia area following his overnight stay at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan. Fedoruk left Wednesday night’s Flyers-Rangers game after a fight with Colton Orr.
Below is a brief Q and A with Fedoruk regarding his condition.
Q: Did the fight you have earlier this year when you were playing with Anaheim (which resulted in having plates put in your face) make you tentative in your fighting since then?
Fedoruk: “Very much so. I think anybody would be tentative with an injury like that. It is just a matter of time until I get back to my style. I am not really worried about it, but being tentative, you have to put yourself out there and when you change your style a little bit you leave yourself vulnerable and that’s what happened to me last night. I am not worried about it. I will get back on track. I have had worse things done to me than this.”

The skill players appreciate what guys like Fedoruk and Orr do night in and night out.
“It’s the toughest job in sports,” said Knuble. “You can’t compare it to boxing or what a boxer does, these guys are out there bare-knuckling. Guys are getting bigger and stronger. It’s dangerous.”
