Head coach Alain Vigneault did not know the severity of it post-game but expect him to be re-evaluated and for the Flyers to release a detailed timeline prior to Thursday’s game vs. the Hurricanes. Joel Farabee was recalled from Lehigh Valley (AHL) and will replace van Riemsdyk in the lineup on Thursday.

van Riemsdyk (foot) has suffered a setback and is likely done for the season.

van Riemsdyk was expected to miss 6-8 weeks and today would mark exactly six weeks, but his foot has not healed like the Maple Leafs expected, so he will be shut down for the rest of the season. With the Maple Leafs tearing the team apart and with nothing to play for, there’s no point in risking JVR getting hurt even more.
