While the Flyers continue their run to the playoffs, one of their top prospects should be playing in the OHL Playoffs right now. But instead of taking the ice for a crucial Game 3 for the Sarnia Sting, Travis Konecny is in Philadelphia, being evaluated for a shoulder injury by Flyers team doctors.
Konecny dealt with shoulder problems prior to being drafted, particularly last season when he missed significant time with a shoulder injury, a potential reason that he slipped to the Flyers, who traded up from the 29th overall pick to the 24th overall pick to acquire him.
The news from the visit proved to be good news, as Konecny will not require surgery on his shoulder. So while he may be limited for the remainder of the season, it will not affect his offseason regimen or chances to potentially make a bid to make the jump to the NHL next season.
