Gostisbehere had five goals and 12 points with a minus-4 rating in 42 games before play was halted in March. It's been a rocky season for Gostisbehere, who's played in just two NHL games since Jan. 8. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in January and then dressed for one game in February before needing additional rest. He just returned to the lineup March 10 to play in the Flyers' final game prior to the postponement.
Gostisbehere (knee) will be the odd-man-out for Tuesday's game against the Sharks, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Gostisbehere recently returned from a conditioning stint with AHL Lehigh Valley, but coach Alain Vigneault evidently doesn't believe that the 26-year-old blueliner is fully ready for NHL action. Another update on the 5-foot-11 American should surface once he's poised to rejoin the lineup.
Gostisbehere (knee) was recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Gostisbehere has suited up just one time over the last 19 games, but he looks ready to return to action after playing two AHL games. The 26-year-old has averaged 18:21 of ice time per game this season, so even when he draws back in, his opportunities will likely be limited.
Gostisbehere (knee) will join AHL Lehigh Valley on a conditioning assignment, the club announced Thursday. After returning too soon from a knee injury, Gostisbehere was sidelined the last six contests. The Phantoms play Friday and Saturday versus AHL Rochester and AHL Syracuse, respectively. If Gostisbehere plays in both contests, and doesn't suffer a setback, he could be in the mix to play versus the Sharks on Tuesday.
Gostisbehere will miss Thursday's matchup with Columbus due to his lingering knee problem, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports. Gostisbehere continues to work his way back after returning too soon from a 10-game injury absence. In total, the defender has missed 16 of the Flyers' previous 17 contests.
