Konecny went to the dressing room and did not return to the game in the 4-3 win over the Flames . Prior to leaving during the second period, Konecny had a goal and an assist in the game.


The 25 year old leads the team in scoring with 27 goals and 54 points in 52 games for the Flyers this session.

If this injury is as serious as it looks, not only is it a huge blow to the Flyers but also any potential trade that Konecny might've been involved in as the deadline approaches
