After looking at who I think should be a choice for a healthy scratch on Saturday, I wanted to look at his possible replacement.
The Flyers defense has been a rotating door this season, both on and off the ice. Four different defensemen have been healthy scratches in recent games: Michael Del Zotto, Luke Schenn, Andrew MacDonald and the subject of this piece, Carlo Colaicovo.
Colaiacovo was signed mid-season after injuries decimated the Flyers blue line. He immediately stepped in and played well in some big minutes, over 16 minutes per game.
