When the Flyers called up Shayne Gostisbehere for their Nov. 14 game in Carolina, no one could have imagined the immediate and ongoing impact he would have on the team.
Gostisbehere has seven goals, three of them overtime winners, and nine assists for 16 points in 23 games. Game 23 for Gostisbehere provided a scare.
The rookie sensation left the Flyers 4-3 overtime win in Minnesota at the five-minute mark of the second period with a lower body injury and did not return, but that was the only update the Flyers provided on the defenseman.
On Friday, the Flyers finally updated Gostisbehere's condition. GM Ron Hextall announced that Gostisbehere will miss Saturday's game against the New York Islanders with a lower-body injury. Another update will be provided on Saturday.
