Hartnell to miss 4-8 weeks

As feared, Scott Hartnell's injury is as bad as it could be. GM Paul Holmgren just announced Hartnell has a fracture of his first metatarsal bone in his left foot, and preliminary indications are that Hartnell will miss anywhere from four to eight weeks.

Surgery is still a possibility, which would impact the length of Hartnell's absence.

Holmgren said he would be looking to make a possible trade to replace Hartnell, who was the Flyers' leading goal scorer last season and was a fixture on the top line with Claude Giroux. More to come.
