Umberger (lower body) skated on a "fifth" line with Ryan White and Vincent Lecavalier during Monday's practice, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. Umberger looks to be nearing a return after skating on an actual line during practice on Monday. However, with that line being outside of the top-12 forward group, Umberger may not be inserted to the lineup right away when he receives the medical all-clear.
Umberger (lower-body) still has about a week left to recover from his injury and will not play on Monday against the Hurricanes, Ray Moffo of 1360 WNJC reports. Assuming Umberger will not return early, he will miss four additional games for the Flyers this week. His next chance to return will be next week Tuesday against the Senators. The 33-year-old veteran has totaled four points in 11 games this season.
Umberger (undisclosed) did not travel with the Flyers for Saturday's matchup with the Senators, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Umberger reportedly is dealing with an injury, the nature and severity of which has not been disclosed. His next chance to lace his skates for a game will be this coming Monday, when the Flyers host the Hurricanes.
Umberger (undisclosed) still isn't ready to rejoin the Flyers' lineup, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Umberger continues to recover from an undisclosed issue, but the news rules him out for Thursday's game against the Sharks. His timetable remains unclear, but with Thursday likely out the window, his next chance would come Saturday against the Senators.
Umberger (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday. Umberger was given a 1-to-2 week recovery timetable Thursday, so it's hardly surprising that the Flyers have opted to place the veteran winger on injured reserve in order to open up a roster spot while he's sidelined.
