After preparing for their game against the Anaheim Ducks (7-5-0) tomorrow night, the Philadelphia Flyers (5-7-1) have gotten some excellent news.
Head coach John Tortorella revealed after practice today that Carter Hart would be in for the Flyers tomorrow, and that Morgan Frost would be joining him. As for the nature of Hart’s injury, the 25-year-old confirmed that he was dealing with a lower-back issue and is ready to return.
Sam Ersson has played most of the games in Hart’s stead, but he’s 1-3-1 in five appearances this season, with a GAA of 3.52 and a .830 save percentage.
After sitting out for the Flyers’ disappointing loss to the San Jose Sharks, Frost will draw back into the lineup tomorrow night. Per PHLY’s Charlie O’Connor, Philadelphia practiced with colored jerseys today, which separated players into groups. Frost wore grey alongside Owen Tippett and Travis Konecny, so expect to see those three together against Anaheim.
The 24-year-old has been a healthy scratch seven times this season, and is without a goal or an assist in his six appearances.
It’s possible the Philadelphia Flyers wish to kickstart their anemic power play, as they have not scored in their last 19 tries. Against San Jose, they went 0-4 and cut two opportunities short by their own accord with penalties.
Currently, it’s unclear which Flyers forward will make way for Frost. The purple practice group consisted of Scott Laughton, Ryan Poehling, Nicolas Deslauriers, and Garnet Hathaway. It was Poehling who exited the lineup last time, so Philadelphia might lean in that direction again.
