Flyers defenseman Nick Grossmann gets work in

Flyers defenseman Nick Grossmann says he is under strict orders not to discuss his current upper body injury but he was among the last off the ice during today’s morning skate.

While saying that general manager Paul Holmgren would have to update his status, Grossmann did allow that he did extend his work today. “That was the most (work) in a few days,” Grossmann said.

Grossmann last played on March 18. He was hurt in practice on March 22 and hasn’t played in the last five games.

Holmgren said Grossmann would not play tonight. "He's coming along but not enough to change his status," Holmgren said.
