Wade Allison cleared for practice; Tyson Foerster injury update
We got some good and bad news today from Flyers land. According to Sam Carchidi, Wade Allison has been cleared for practice after suffering a high ankle sprain in the Flyers Rookie Game. Allison is a 2016 pick (52nd overall), that played his college hockey for Western Michigan.
In 14 games with the Flyers last season, Wade Allison put up 4G-3A-7P, and was a huge spark for a team that had zero life at the time. Carchidi went on to say that Wade Allison has a chance to play for the Phantoms in about 2-3 weeks, after he gets a nice handful of practices in.
The Phantoms are currently 3-8-5, with their only source of offense being Morgan Frost, who has 13 points in his last 10 games. It’s no secret that the Phantoms are just not a very good team, so the addition of Allison in hopefully 2-3 weeks could give them a little boost.
Now, it’s time for the bad news. In the same tweet, Carchidi addressed Tyson Foerster, who has been out for a couple weeks now, saying the 20-year-old could potentially miss 5 months with a shoulder injury. It sucks seeing Foerster have to deal with yet another injury issue. He missed the last portion of the season last year after suffering a separated collarbone in May of 2021. It really is a shame this happened, I wish Tyson a quick and healthy recovery.
We didn’t really get an update on the whole Kevin Hayes situation yet. According to Carchidi, Hayes will make the trip to Florida, but isn’t expected to play in any of the games. I have no idea why they would bother getting him on the plane, just to not play? Maybe there’s an outside chance he can play, who knows? It’s just strange that they’re bringing him, despite knowing he’s not playing. Maybe for moral support, he is such a huge piece to that locker room, even if he’s not suiting up.
