Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers will be without forward Wayne Simmonds for Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
"Wayne will not play in tonight's game because of head and neck injuries suffered in last nights game. He will be re-evaluated tomorrow," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren prior to the contest.
Simmonds left late in the first period of Friday's 3-2 loss in Washington and did not return after absorbing a hit to the head by Capitals defenseman John Erskine.
Erskine was not penalized on the play and faced a disciplinary hearing in New York Saturday afternoon.
