Staal will be out indefinitely, but doctors said he would make a full recovery. The defenseman was not wearing a visor. Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.

When the Flyers' season ended with a playoff loss to the New York Rangers, veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen figured he had played the final game of his stellar 15-year career. "There were a lot of times I thought, 'OK, this was probably enough,' " he said in a conference call with reporters Friday afternoon. But a couple weeks later, Timonen reconsidered, and on Friday he signed a one-year deal for $2 million plus incentives. He was paid $6 million last season. "After a few weeks of working hard, I realized I could still do it. It wasn't the money," Timonen, who lives in Haddonfield, said before boarding a flight to return to his native Finland for 10 days.

Flourtown's Mike Richter has never forgotten his roots, which is why he said it was so special to be named in the 11th induction class of the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame. Richter was a three-time all-star goalie with the New York Rangers, who led the team to the Stanley Cup in 1994. "This means a lot because it is Philadelphia," Richter said on Tuesday as the Hall of Fame class was introduced at a news conference. Not all inductees were able to attend. The induction will take place Nov. 13 at the Society Hill Sheraton.

TWO MEN walked into the Society Hill Sheraton for the same purpose, but took different routes getting there. They both were born in the Philadelphia area, and were at the same event for the same reason. Both boxer Meldrick Taylor and hockey star Mike Richter were there because they will be inducted into the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame, along with 14 other individuals and one team. A quaint smile came over the face of Taylor when he heard his accolades being read off by Philadelphia legendary announcer Dan Baker on Tuesday afternoon.
