PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio)  Flyers defenseman Philippe Myers thought his season would be on hold after fracturing a kneecap in early March. But with the delay in the hockey season due to the pandemic, Myers has completely recovered and is ready for game action.

“It’s good to be back in the routine. Like I said, I never needed surgery or anything, so it was a smooth recovery and it’s coming along good,” he said. 

Myers arrived in Voorhees this week to begin workouts with his teammates, and says he was happy to be back on the ice with several other Flyers.

“It’s good to be back, I mean to see some of the boys and just sort of get back to the routine, and to be able to work out at the Skate Zone. It’s a privilege and I’m happy to be back,” he added. 

Myers would have originally missed the remainder of the regular season and possibly the start of the playoffs, but now, he’ll be ready to go when play resumes in August.

The official start of training camp is still set for July 10.
