Timonen is out with a lower-body injury.

The 38-year-old defenseman has two goals and 17 assists in his 55 games this season. The Finnish Olympian had been bothered by a foot injury recently. He left Tuesday’s game against the Detroit in the second period after blocking a shot. The Flyers officially list Timonen as “day-to-day” with a “lower-body” injury. Timonen didn’t practice with the Flyers Friday. Filling in his place is Andrej Meszaros. The 28-year-old Slovakian has four goals and 11 assists in 32 games this season. All 23 games he’s missed have been as a healthy scratch.

Timonen was injured after blocking a shot against the Red Wings on Tuesday and will not practice Wednesday. However, he will travel with the team on their three-game west coast road-trip. That is good news as far as the severity of the injury is concerned. If it was serious injury, he would be held back in Philly, expect a full update later today.
