That’s two Flyers who came back, and then immediately got hurt again. Ryan Ellis is week-to-week and now Hayes as well.

In Kevin’s case, he returned from offseason core muscle surgery to make his debut in Dallas, where he bagged an assist. He scored in the Calgary home game and then did not play against Boston or Tampa later in the week. He had slotted into the second line on his return, which lasted two games.

Rough schedule this week for the Flyers. They have a road/road back-to-back with Tampa and Florida, then they come home to play Carolina on Friday night before heading up to Newark on Sunday.
