Update: Gagne injured in Olympic camp

According to multiple reports out of Team Canada’s Olympic camp in Calgary, Flyers’ forward Simon Gagne has suffered a hip injury practicing with the team.  Darren Dreger of TSN is reporting that Gagne will miss the rest of the week-long camp.

The injury is not serious, but just a tweaking of the right hip, the same in which Gagne had a clean up procedure on in late May.

“For now it’s nothing serious,” Gagne told Chuck Gormley of the Courier Post. “The pace was a little faster than I was used to this summer.  I think I’ll be OK for training camp.”

Gagne believes that the fast pace of the camp contributed to soreness.

“It was a little tight when I was skating on my own, but the tempo here is a lot faster than the pace I set this summer,” he said. “It’s faster than I expected and I’ll need to do some more rehab.”

The injury is likely to keep Simon on the shelf until Flyers’ training camp on Sept. 13.
