TORONTO _ Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger apparently re-injured his right hand and will not play play Thursday night in Toronto.
Nick Boynton will replace Pronger and make his Flyers debut.
Pronger originally injured the hand blocking a shot against the Islanders on Feb. 24. He missed one game _ a 4-1 loss in Ottawa _ and then played the next four contests.
After Thursday's morning skate, Pronger would not comment. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren would not get into specifics, saying Prionger had an upper-body injury and that he was day to day.
Brian Boucher will start against Toronto. He is 2-0 with a 1.50 GAA and .935 save percentage against the Leafs this season.
