Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev sat out Monday's game as a healthy scratch, the first time the Russian blue liner missed a game this season.
At the time, GM Ron Hextall explained the decision, calling it an adjustment to the North American game. Turns out, it may be something else.
Hextall announced that Medvedev is traveling back to Philadelphia for further evaluation. He will be out of the lineup on Tuesday and most likely the remainder of the road trip.
