Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren met with the media following today’s skate at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone. Holmgren gave the latest injury report.

According to Holmgren, Flyers second-year winger Steve Downie suffered a mild strain of his MCL during Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals, but is hopeful for the start of the regular season on October 11.

Defenseman Ryan Parent, who has been nursing a shoulder issue, was back on the ice for practice today.
