Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers announced that
forward Scott Hartnell underwent successful surgery on a broken toe.
"Scott Hartnell had successful surgery today to repair a broken first
metatarsal in his left foot. The surgery was performed by Dr. Steven Raikin.
Recovery is expected to be 4-6 weeks," said Flyers general manager Paul
Holmgren in a statement issued Friday night.
Hartnell, who was coming off a career-best 37-goal season in 2011-12, was
felled in the second period of a 3-0 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday, when he
was struck in the skate by a shot from teammate Kimmo Timonen.
