Our favorite chirper Travis Konecney, as of right now, looks like he could be done for the season. This is horrible news. TK left the ice on Saturday after receiving a huge hit from Senators defenseman Mark Borowiecki. Coach V said that it was upper body and we would know more on Monday.
Man, do I really hate Mondays.
It was announced today that TK will be out of the lineup indefinitely. This doesn’t mean he is done for the season, it just means there is no timetable for his return. This is terrible news for Flyers fan, as we still yet have no clue when Nolan Patrick will even be coming back.
Travis was signed to a six year $33 million dollar contract this season, he was one of the Flyers to holdouts. This contract locks up TK as a cornerstone for the Flyers future. He was putting up numbers at a great pace before the injury, with 28 points in 30 games.
There was no call for the hit that took TK out, but Farabee and Voracek did make the Senators pay later in the game, with Scott Laughton finishing them off.
The Flyers play Wednesday at 9:30pm in Denver to play my Avalanche. I will be rocking my Burgundy in celebration. Its time for the Flyers depth to step up in a huge way!
