The Philadelphia Flyers could be without defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere tomorrow to face the New Jersey Devils, as he missed today's practice with illness, as reported on Twitter by hockey insider John Boruk. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall didn't provide any other details, only saying that Gostisbehere was "under the weather".
Gostisbehere, drafted 78th overall by the Flyers in 2012, has scored nine goals and added 23 assists for 32 points in 39 games played so far this season. The 24-year old defenseman played 181 games in the NHL so far, registering 117 points and added two points in six playoff games. Here's a video of his ninth and last goal of the season, scored against the Buffalo Sabres on January seventh.
The Flyers are currently seventh in the Metropolitan division with a record of 19-15-8. They won their last three games.
We will keep you updated on Gostisbehere's status for tomorrow's game against the Devils.
