Flyers D Grossmann out for season

The SportsXchange

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann will miss 8-10 weeks after having surgery Tuesday to repair a damaged tendon in his right ankle, the team announced.

The stay-at-home defenseman was hurt after a battle along the boards in Game 4.

The injury ends Grossmann's season regardless of the outcome of Wednesday's Game 7 at The New York Rangers.

Grossmann, who averaged over 16 minutes of ice time during his four playoff games this season, was replaced in the lineup by Hal Gill for Game 5 and Erik Gustafsson for Game 6.
