Elliott (lower body) was forced to return to Philadelphia for further medical evaluation, which raises the concern about his injury, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. The Flyers are in Edmonton preparing for Friday's road game against the Oilers, but Elliott was rerouted back home for what appears to be an urgent medical appointment. Philadelphia's goaltending situation has been in a constant state of flux, and with Michal Neuvirth also heading home to be with his wife, who is expecting, Alex Lyon has been recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley as the interim No. 2 goalie behind rookie Anthony Stolarz.
Elliott (lower body) is listed as week-to-week and will miss more time than originally expected, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Elliott was initially expected to miss just a couple of weeks with a lower-body injury but now it appears that timeline was a tad optimistic, and the veteran netminder is expected to be out for longer. Elliott remains on injured reserve and is considered week-to-week, although nothing out of Philadelphia suggests he's close to a return. The Flyers' netminder was injured back on Nov. 15.
Elliott (lower body) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 15, per the NHL media site. By utilizing the retroactive designation, Elliott is eligible to be activated as soon as he is healthy, which based on his two-week timeline would be Dec. 1 versus the Penguins. The University of Wisconsin product has been plagued by injuries this season that have limited him to just 14 appearances. In those contests, the netminder is 6-7-0 with one shutout and a .911 save percentage.
Elliott will miss two weeks due to a lower-body injury. Elliott has been plagued by injuries this season and will be out until December due to this latest malady. The Flyers are already without Michal Neuvirth (undisclosed), which means Calvin Pickard could see some additional time in the crease. While not official yet, based on his recovery timeline, Elliott should be designated for injured reserve shortly.
Elliott (groin) injured himself trying to make a save late in Thursday's game versus the Devils and had to be replaced by Calvin Pickard, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Elliott appeared to aggravate something in his lower half, likely his groin -- a common injury for goaltenders. Prior to departing, he'd allowed two goals on 25 shots. Meanwhile, the 2018-19 season has been one marred by injury for No. 37 and it appears Elliott could face another extended absence thanks to this latest development.
