Brayden Schenn Has Broken Foot

Oct 27, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT

Paul Holmgren confirmed today that Brayden Schenn has broken his foot, according to CSN's Panotch.

Contrary to what we might have thought, last night WAS worse than it looked. In addition to the Flyers getting spanked by a team that couldn’t find the W column with a flashlight and both hands, they also lost Brayden Schenn for a while with a broken foot, reports Tim Panaccio.

In related news, PSPhantoms reported earlier today that Zac Rinaldo and Erik Gustafsson were being called up to the Flyers, with Matt Walker (and his salary) expected to be the odd man out for now. Although nothing has been made official on either of those guys just yet.

At least Sean Couturier gets off the fourth line, where he wound up when Schenn was called up from Adirondack.

UPDATE: From Paul Holmgren, Schenn will be out of action for 4 – 6 weeks.

UPDATE2: Matt Walker will not be sent down. Instead, Schenn will be placed on LTIR so no other moves will need to be made. [Anthony San]
