Andreas Lilja joined the Adirondack Phantoms Monday on a conditioning assignment.

He underwent left hip surgery in mid-July and is expected to remain with the Phantoms for a few days to practice but he won't play in any games. Lilja is currently receiving his $700,000 salary in regular installments because he was injured prior to the lockout, but once he's medically cleared he will join his locked-out brethren.

Andreas Lilja (hip) was able to get around without the aide of crutches on Thursday.

Lilja underwent surgery in late July and is expected to miss roughly the first month of the regular season. Of course, the start of the 2012-13 campaign might be delayed due to a lockout. If that happens, as an injured player, Lilja will still be paid and allowed to use the Flyers' training facility.

According to a report in the Swedish newspaper Helsingsborgs Dagblad, Andreas Lilja underwent hip surgery last week and could be out for four months.

The surgery was performed to repair a degenerative condition that has been plaguing him for more than a year. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren confirmed the procedure and says that the 37-year-old will "be ready in late October or early November," though Meszaros speculated he could be out until December. Even though Meszaros only played 46 games last year and this season may not start on time, it's still a blow to a depleted defense group, which has already lost Matt Carle to the Lighting and Andrej Meszaros to a torn Achilles.
