JVR Practices But Could Remain Out vs Montreal

After missing Sunday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks with a slight groin pull, Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk practiced on Monday  but will likely remain out for Tuesday’s home contest against the Montreal Canadiens, general manager Paul Holmgren told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Dan Carcillo, who missed Monday’s practice for personal reasons, is expected to remain activated in JVR’s spot. Carcillo has two goals and one assist in just 27 games this season.

JVR’s injury was not deemed serious. However, with just one game in the next seven days, thanks to the NHL All-Star break, receiving maximum healing time, while also giving Carcillo an opportunity to contribute, was likely the reason for holding JVR out of the lineup.

JVR has 12 goals and 11 assists in 44 games this season.
