Shayne Gostisbehere (knee) should be back sometime in February.

Gostisbehere underwent surgery for a torn ACL in November. Prior to that he made his NHL debut on Oct. 25 and played again on Oct. 28. He was limited to less than 13 minutes in each contest. When he's healthy enough to play, he'll probably serve in the minors rather than immediately be called up by Philadelphia.

Nicklas Grossmann (upper body) is out Thursday after all.

Flyers Craig Berube said Grossmann needs more time before he rejoins the lineup, but it shouldn't be long now. In the meantime, Carlo Colaiacovo will probably continue to play.

Nicklas Grossmann will probably rejoin the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

If that happens, then Carlo Colaiacovo will likely be a healthy scratch. Grossmann has three goals and eight points in 41 games in 2014-15.

Rob Zepp has been sent down to the minors.

Zepp was summoned to give the Flyers a second goaltender while Steve Mason recovered from a knee injury. Mason was able to return on Tuesday, so Zepp's demotion was anticipated. Zepp has a 2.92 GAA and .889 save percentage in six games with Philadelphia.

Nick Schultz (upper body) returned to action on Tuesday January 27.

He didn't play in Philadelphia's last game before the All-Star break because of an upper-body injury. Schultz recorded two shots and saw 20:56 of ice time in 4-3 shootout win over Arizona.

Steve Mason earned a victory Tuesday despite starting the game on the bench as the Flyers upended Arizona in a shootout by a score of 4-3.

Mason declared himself fit to return from a knee injury on this night, but Ray Emery received the starting nod and lasted fewer than six minutes before he was removed from the game after allowing two quick goals. Mason stopped 22 of the 23 shots he faced in relief and improved his record to 9-12-6 in the process. His GAA is now 2.41 while his save percentage stands at .921.

Wayne Simmonds scored a goal for Philadelphia on Tuesday as they scored a 4-3 win over the Coyotes.

Simmonds buried his 17th goal of the campaign during a first period power play and he now stands one point shy of 30 for the season. Michael Del Zotto and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Flyers in the victory.

Rob Zepp will be a healthy scratch against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

With Steve Mason expected to start against the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday, and Ray Emery starting tonight, Zepp's time with the big boys appears to be drawing to a close.
Jan 27 - 6:36 PM

Petr Straka has been called up from the minors.

Straka will make his NHL debut on Tuesday as Michael Raffl is dealing with an illness. Straka has 11 goals and 17 points in 39 AHL games this season.
Jan 27 - 11:30 AM

Michael Raffl is dealing with an illness.

Raffl will miss Tuesday's game as a result. Petr Straka has been summoned from the minors and will help fill the void.
Jan 27 - 11:29 AM

Steve Mason (knee) will return to the Flyers' lineup on Tuesday.

Mason will start the contest as the team's backup though. If all goes well, he'll probably start on Thursday.
Jan 27 - 11:27 AM

Ray Emery will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Emery has been helping to fill the void left by Steve Mason (knee). However, Mason is healthy enough to backup now, so Emery will probably be warming the bench Thursday.
Jan 27 - 11:26 AM

Zac Rinaldo received an eight-game suspension for his hit on Pittsburgh's Kris Letang.

Letang received a concussion as a result of the blow. Even Rinaldo's coach Craig Berube, wasn't in the mood to defend his player. "He knows he can't hit somebody from behind like that, you know what I mean?" Berube said. "I've said it a hundred times." Rinaldo is eligible to return on Feb. 17.
Jan 27 - 11:25 AM

As expected, Ryan White is back up with the Philadelphia Flyers.

He was projected to be called up after the All-Star break. White will get a chance to play with Zac Rinaldo suspended. White had surgery in the off-season to repair a torn pectoralis muscle injury, so when he suits up for the Flyers it will be his debut with the team.
Jan 26 - 2:45 PM

Jakub Voracek tied the NHL record for most points in an All-Star Game with six.

Voracek had three goals and three assists in the event, matching Mario Lemieux's showing in 1988. Columbus was the host city for the All-Star Game, so this was a homecoming of sorts for Voracek. He was drafted by the Blue Jackets in 2007, but traded by them in 2011 as part of the Jeff Carter deal. Voracek broke out with his new team, Philadelphia, and has a league-leading 56 points this season.
