Nicklas Grossmann D PHI 22 Days

Grossmann (shoulder) was activated from injured reserve and will play Thursday against the Islanders.

He's set to play for the first time since Jan. 8, joining Andrew MacDonald on the Flyers' third pairing. Grossmann hasn't shown much game on the offensive end this season (three goals, five assists in 41 games), but has compiled nearly two hits and over one block per contest.

Grossmann (shoulder) is on track to return to the lineup Thursday against the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Grossmann was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, skating on the second pairing with Andrew MacDonald. His official activation from IR should come following Thursday's morning skate.

Grossmann (shoulder) will not return to the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

The Flyers suggested after Friday's practice that Grossmann was closing in on a return to the lineup, but his shoulder is apparently still bugging him enough that the team decided to keep him out for another game. The rearguard last suited up for the Flyers on Jan. 8.

Grossmann (shoulder) hasn't been ruled out as a lineup option for Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers medical staff has already cleared Grossmann for a return, and his participation in Friday's practice lends further credence to the belief that he might be cleared to play Saturday. At this point, the decision seems to remain solely up to coach Craig Berube, who will likely evaluate Grossmann during Saturday's morning skate before determining his status for the game that evening.

Grossmann (upper body) won't be a lineup option for Thursday's game against the Jets, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Grossmann has been cleared to play at this point after missing the previous three weeks with the injury, but the coaching staff believes the blueliner is in need of some more practice time. His return to action could come over the weekend against the Leafs, with Carlo Colaiacovo likely moving out of the lineup to accommodate him.

Grossman (upper body) has been cleared to play, and while he won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Coyotes, he hope to return by the end of the week, CSN Philadelphia reports.

Grossman is approaching the end of his three-week timetable, which seems to have been a near-perfect estimation. He still needs to log a few practices, but he hasn't been ruled out beyond Tuesday.

Grossmann (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

The move allowed the Flyers to recall goalie Rob Zepp from AHL Lehigh Valley. Grossmann is set to miss at least three weeks due to the injury he suffered during last Thursday's game.

Grossmann is expected to miss three weeks due to the upper-body injury he suffered Thursday against the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The injury appeared to be related to Grossmann's right shoulder. Grossmann had been holding down a top-pairing spot next to Mark Streit, but those duties are now likely to go to Andrew MacDonald for the next several games. With eight points in 41 games, Grossmann wasn't really on the radar in most fantasy formats, but his physicality will be missed on the Flyers' blue line.

Grossmann left during the first period of Thursday's game with an upper-body injury and will not return.

Grossmann will finish the game with just 5:46 of ice time, leaving the Flyers with just five defensemen for the remainder of the game. He appeared to have injured his shoulder and possibly suffered a concussion, but the team should provide an update prior to Saturday's game against the Bruins.

Grossman hasn't tallied a point in six games, but remains on pace for his best NHL season.

He's on pace to best his personal records in plus/minus and points. That said, he's minus-4 in his last three games, and the Flyers' defense has played woefully. If he's on your roster, monitor him accordingly.
