Flyers forward Ian Laperriere is expected to miss the entire season and his career could be in jeopardy, the Daily News has learned.

Technically, Laperriere has been placed on the short-term injury list with post-concussion syndrome, but doctors are trying to determine whether his symptoms are from concussions or from the eye injury that he suffered in the first round against the Devils last year.

Because Laperriere is older than 35, his status has salary cap implications for the Flyers that the team is still evaluating.

Andreas Nodl was sent down to the AHL Adirondack Phantoms, but the move was procedural. He will be recalled in time for tomorrow's season opener at Pittsburgh and traveled with the Flyers.
