Flyers GM Paul Holmgren

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren

Good news for Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren — he’s finally out of the hospital after receiving treatment for injuries suffered in a bicycle accident earlier this week.

The former Flyers tough guy and current executive suffered a broken shoulder, broken ribs, and various cuts that needed stitching when he lost control and crashed his bike on Monday in Avalon, NJ.

So other than some broken bones and probably some wounded pride, Holmgren can get back to getting ready for Flyers training camp, which sees rookies coming in on Monday, September 12 and the real deal getting underway on Saturday, September 17.

The Flyers rookie camp will run for three days.  It will consist of on-ice workouts at The Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, all of which are free and open to the public.  Activities will conclude Thursday, September 15 with the Flyers hosting the Washington Capitals in a preseason “Rookie Game” scrimmage.

Here is the rookie camp schedule, subject to change.

Mon, Sept. 12 – 10 a.m. – Noon
Tues, Sept. 13 – 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Wed, Sept. 14 – 11 a.m. – Noon
Thur, Sept. 15 – Rookie Game vs. Washington Capitals Rookies – 5 p.m.
