Defenseman Nicklas Grossmann suffered a lower body injury in the first period Saturday and did not return.

Nicklas Grossmann scored his first two goals of the season in Thursday's 4-2 win over Colorado.

Do not be surprised if the Philadelphia Flyers trade at least one veteran defenseman in the off-season.

Nicklas Grossman's name is likely at the top of the list and while they could also deal Luke Schenn, having his brother Brayden on the team may make them think twice about dealing Luke. Grossmann will get $3.5 million next season before he is eligible for free agency so he could be gone as the Flyers have a bunch of prospects chomping at the bit to get into the NHL.
