Flyers defensemen Coburn, MacDonald out four weeks

The Flyers took a huge blow to their already weak blue line.

Veteran defensemen Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald are expected to miss four weeks each due to injury.

The Flyers, who have seven defensemen on their roster prior to the injuries, will need to call one up. Mark Alt is expected to be that player called up.

Three Phantoms Defensemen Look Good In Rookie Camp

TCL Flyers was on the scene for Flyers developmental camp Thursday morning and afternoon at the Virtua SkateZone in Voorhees, NJ.

Included in the roster of very young and hopeful hockey players were twelve defensemen ranging in ages from 18 up to 21 years old.

With defense being one of the toughest positions in the game to play and a position sometimes with a prolonged timeframe to develop well enough to break into the NHL, most of these players are ways away from representing the Flyers consistently in regular season play. But it is still nice to see how these young guys look in various drills.

Standing out yesterday were 21-year-old Mark Alt, 20-year-old Shayne Gostisbehere, and 21-year-old Matt Konan.
