Leighton to miss a month, Laperriere out indefinitely
Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren called Michael Leighton’s latest setback a “bombshell,” saying it caught him off-guard Tuesday when he found out that Leighton will be out at least one month with a bulging disc in his lower back. Hardly anyone is truly surprised, given Holmgren’s ambiguous handling of the injury on Monday. Holmgren said a second opinion on Monday night convinced him of the problem.
