And then there was one.

Warrior Kimmo Timonen has joined the Flyers’ list of walking wounded.

Now, Luke Schenn will be the Flyers’ only opening day defenseman to finish the season in the lineup during this forgettable, 97-day season.

The Flyers announced Tuesday that Timonen will miss the remaining three games of the season with a compression fracture in his right foot. His recovery time will be approximately 4-5 weeks.

With Timonen out, the Flyers re-called defenseman Andreas Lilja from Adirondack on emergency conditions. They had already filled their allotted four call-ups from the minor leagues with Scott Laughton, Matt Konan, Tye McGinn and Jason Akeson.

Either Lilja or Konan could play on Tuesday night against the Bruins. It would be Konan’s NHL debut, should he get the nod.

Here’s the Flyers’ injury list at the moment:

Kimmo Timonen (foot fracture)
Nick Grossmann (concussion)
Bruno Gervais (abdominal muscle tear)
Kent Huskins (concussion)
Chris Pronger (concussion-like symptoms)
Braydon Coburn (shoulder)
Andrej Meszaros (shoulder)
Max Talbot (leg fracture)
Zac Rinaldo (high ankle sprain)
Jody Shelley (hip)
Matt Walker (back / hip)
