Hartnell, Carter don't need surgery

Posted: May 14, 2011

After sending six players under the knife this week to repair various injuries, the Flyers finally received a small bit of good news yesterday.

Scott Hartnell and Jeff Carter were checked out by doctors and will not require offseason surgery to repair hip injuries. Carter also will not need surgery to fix a knee injury that kept him out of five Stanley Cup playoff games.

This week, Chris Pronger (herniated disk in lower back), Mike Richards (wrist), Michael Leighton (torn labrum), Andrej Meszaros (wrist), Kris Versteeg (sports hernia) and Blair Betts (finger) all underwent successful surgeries.

All six will begin rehab within a few weeks and should be available for the start of training camp in mid-September. *
