The Flyers announced Saturday that Claude Giroux (wrist), Wayne Simmonds (finger) and Matt Carle (stomach muscle) underwent surgery recently.

The team also said James van Riemsdyk (hip) and Kimmo Timonen (back) will have surgeries during the upcoming week.

Timonen's recovery is listed as the longest _ eight to 10 weeks.

No other Flyers will require surgery, GM Paul Holmgren said. There had been reports out of Sweden that defenseman Nick Grossmann would need knee surgery. That's not the case, Holmgren said.
