Forsberg and Hatcher Injured
Flyers forward Peter Forsberg and defenseman Derian Hatcher are both injured and will miss the beginning of training camp, according to Flyers General Manager Bob Clarke. Forsberg has an infected bursa in his right ankle and will have surgery on Monday, September 12, and will miss at least two weeks, while Hatcher has a sprain in his left knee and will miss at least three weeks.

Bob Clarke comments on the injuries to Derian Hatcher and Peter Forsberg:
"Hatcher got hurt at the U.S. Olympic Team's training camp and there is not a whole lot anybody could do about that. He is suspended for the first three games of the NHL regular season. In all likelihood he won't miss too many regular season games although he will miss all of training camp.

"If everything goes well with Forsberg the way the doctors have told us, he will get back in before training is over and be ready by the start of the season. Even though it is a little bit disappointing, it is something we can live with."

Flyers Strength and Conditioning Coach Jim McCrossin comments on the injuries to Derian Hatcher and Peter Forsberg:
"Derian has a grade 2 posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) sprain of his left knee. He was examined by our team physicians and it was determined that he will be out a minimum of three weeks. In lieu of that time, he started rehab today with me and he is doing fine. He will be fitted for a brace and as soon as we get him back on the ice-skating, condition-wise, we will do so.

"Peter has an infected bursa in his right ankle. We attempted to treat him with a course of antibiotics but that did not work. The medical staff has come to the conclusion that we are going to remove it. Peter will have surgery on Monday, September 12 to remove the bursa. He should be off the ice for a minimum of two weeks."
