Flyers D Kimmo Timonen Being Treated for Blood Clots

Flyers veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen is in Finland where he is being treated for blood clots in his right leg and both lungs, according to the Flyers on Tuesday.

This isn't the first time Timonen has experienced blood clots. He had them in the same leg during the 2008 playoffs, not allowing him to compete in the Eastern Conference Final against the Penguins.

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.
