Hayes set as week to week for Flyers
Kevin Hayes is set to be put on week to week status for the Philadelphia Flyers in the coming games as he got injured on his abdominal muscles again. The star will have to be determined for the next few days if he is going to play for a certain game or not.
The Flyers took a 2-1 win against the Calgary Flames last November 16. Hayes left the overtime game when he got tangled with forward Elias Lindholm with 2:38 left in the second period and soon came back in the third to help them win.
Hayes did not play in the next two games after that before the club opted to put him on week to week. This means they are still yet to figure out what his status will be until he recovers. Flyers coach Alain Vigneault said that there is more to expect from the team news as he continues to get better.
‘He's seeing a couple of doctors’, the Flyers head coach said. ‘We have a couple of opinions. At this time all I can say is he's week to week. He reinjured the same injury and we're in the process of rehabbing. Not exactly sure what the length is going to be but it's week to week’.
Hayes was in panic mode when he got injured but he also wanted to help the team in the best way he can. The star already had a core muscle surgery in May and abdominal surgery on September 21. He was out for the first 12 games of the season.
Philly will need all the help it can get as they hope to get to a winning track after going on a rough stretch. The Flyers are struggling to get some wins on the fly and they now need to get a better pace going with Hayes now out for the roster until further notice.
The star will still stay for their current trip and will be put into the lineup should the team need his services in the coming weeks. That will bring out the best from the Flyers as they aim to shake off their woes and be on the bounce when Hayes comes back.
