Flyers F-Rinaldo Day-to-Day With Upper-Body Injury

The Flyers will be down another forward on Tuesday night against the Minnesota Wild, as tenacious winger Zac Rinaldo has been officially labeled day-to-day with an upper-body injury according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

The injury is the second in as many days for the Flyers, who lost forward James van Riemsdyk to a concussion on Sunday.

Rinaldo, sitting second in the NHL in penalty minutes with 122, was hit in the face with a puck during Monday’s afternoon practice. Originally stated to be a game-time decision, the Flyers iced Rinaldo, who will be replaced by enforcer Jody Shelley on the team’s fourth line.

Rinaldo has a goal and four assists in 35 games. Shelley has an assist in 14 games
