Shayne Gostisbehere's knee surgery went quite well according to GM Ron Hextall.
Gostisbehere only needed surgery on his ACL and that was the absolute best the Flyers could have hoped for when he went under the knife this past week. Gostisbehere will watch the Flyers play alongside Kjell Samuelsson while recovering. "He can watch [Michael] Del Zotto and [Mark] Streit and the other defensemen, and he can learn a lot," Hextall said. "He can find a way in the next few months to get better. Just by watching, you can learn a lot - and be better for it when he comes back." Hextall said that Gostisbehere will be ready to go in 3 or 3 1/2 months so he should return in mid-late February.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall thinks Shayne Gostisbehere (torn ACL) might be able to return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Gostisbehere will have surgery before the end of November. This unfortunate setback came just a couple weeks after he made his NHL debut.
Nov 10 - 10:29 AM

The Philadelphia Flyers announced that prospect Shayne Gostisbehere is out indefinitely with a torn ACL.

The 21-year-old was a third-round pick (78th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft. He played two games with the Flyers in 2014-15.
Nov 8 - 6:58 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers are sending Shayne Gostisbehere to the minors.

Gostisbehere's demotion follows the Flyers' decision to sign Carlo Colaiacovo. "I knew it was coming," Gostisbehere. "It was nothing I didn't expect. I mean, it's going to happen. I'm a young guy. Guys like that over there (Colaiacovo) get called and signed. Guys have earned their stripes here already, so they get the opportunity to play, and my time will come." Gostisbehere has no points and a minus-two rating in two games with Philadelphia this season.

Shayne Gostisbehere made his NHL debut on Saturday.

The defenseman looked good offensively with some nice passes and a big shot but coach Craig Berube chose to pick his spots with the youngster as he played only 12:27 minutes. He is a nice flier as the Flyers will need him over the next four weeks with injuries to Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald.
Oct 26 - 9:12 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere is set to make his NHL debut on Saturday as his Philadelphia Flyers face the Detroit Red Wings.

The 21-year-old has two assists in three AHL games this season. His resume is slim enough that it's difficult to tell if he has much of a chance to make an impact. The Flyers would likely embrace it, as they're obviously hurting in that area right now.
Oct 25 - 5:31 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere has been called up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Gostisbehere has two assists in three AHL games in 2014-15. He's projected to make his NHL debut on Saturday. He was a candidate to make the team's opening game roster, but the Flyers were reluctant to rush their young blueliners. However, with Braydon Coburn, Andrew MacDonald, and Kimmo Timonen all sidelined, the Flyers need reinforcements.
Oct 24 - 5:54 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere has been sent down to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL.

He was great in the preseason, but he wasn't able to land himself a roster spot with the Flyers. Philadelphia made a point of saying that they didn't want to rush their defense prospects after Kimmo Timonen was injured, so Gostisbehere will get to start his pro career in the minors.
Oct 1 - 5:22 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere may be able to land a roster spot with the Flyers, as early as next season.

Erik Gustafsson is off to the KHL so Philadelphia has an opening on the back end and a player with a lower cap hit would certainly help them out. Gostisbehere, Robert Hagg or Samuel Morin could be possibilities to stick with the big club next year.
May 17 - 6:07 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere has agreed to an entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Gostisbehere had nine goals and 34 points in 42 games with Union College in 2013-14. He also had a plus-seven rating in Union's 7-4 victory over Minnesota in the NCAA championship game. Philadelphia took him in the third round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
Apr 15 - 1:18 PM

Team USA defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere has been suspended one game by the IIHF and will not play on Wednesday.

The third round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers got a five minute major and a game misconduct for a slash against Slovakia Sunday. Gostisbehere will miss the quarter-final game against Switzerland. In other news, Valeri Nichushkin was also dealt a one game suspension for his hit Sunday against Canada and he will miss quarter final action against the Czech Republic Wednesday.

Team USA defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for slashing in Monday's 9-3 victory against Slovakia.

The infraction will likely be reviewed by the International Ice Hockey Federation and a suspension could follow heading into the playoff round of the tournament. Gostisbehere was selected in the third round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. He is currently playing in his second season at Union College.
