With the regular season on the horizon for the Philadelphia Flyers, the club is trying to sort out how its recent string of injury will affect its opening-day roster.

Forward Scottie Upshall had successful surgery on his left wrist in Baltimore on Thursday. According to general manager Paul Holmgren, he is expected to miss approximately six weeks.

The Flyers did get good news on forward Joffrey Lupul. It was feared that he also seriously injured his wrist, but instead was diagnosed with a sprained wrist. He is expected to miss just three to five days.

Finally, center R.J. Umberger had surgery on his left small finger and will miss two weeks, while defenseman Randy Jones is day-to-day with a hip flexor.
