Kimmo Timonen is expected to be released from a hospital in Finland sometime on Wednesday after being treated for multiple blood clots in both lungs and his lower right leg.

The Flyers will proceed as if this a “long term” situation, and try to sign a player via free agency or a trade. Timonen is out indefinitely. They are more than $3 million over the NHL salary cap of $69 million for the coming season. “We believe it could be a long-term situation and will continue to evaluate what is out there,” GM Ron Hextall said during a conference call. “If we feel we need to make a move we will and I would suspect there’s a good chance we will.”

The Flyers signed 39-year-old defenseman Kimmo Timonen to a one-year, $2 million dollar contract extension last Friday.

During his seven seasons with the Flyers, Timonen has won five Barry Ashbee trophies as the team’s best defenseman, including the last three in a row. Timonen finished the 2013-14 season with six goals and 29 assists (35 points) in 77 games. In seven years with Philly he has averaged 38.6 points per season, that is including 29 points in 45 games in the lockout shortened season. Despite getting up there in age, Timonen has only missed a total of 21 regular season games in his tenure with the Flyers. He should be a reliable blueliner yet again in 2014-15.

Monitor his status during Thursday's morning skate. The Flyers D-pairs will be: Meszaros-Streit, Coburn-Grossmann, Gustafsson-L. Schenn.

Timonen (foot) likely won't be available on Thursday.

It appears Timonen will miss his third straight game tomorrow. He is skating as an extra at Flyers' practice this morning which suggests that he won't play. However it is a positive sign that he is on the ice, don't rule him out but he is questionable.
