In Monday's season finale against the New Jersey Devils, Flyers defenseman Justin Braun left in the first period after suffering a lower body injury while blocking a shot. It turns out that he broke his foot on the play.
Braun will have a lengthy offseason to recover from the injury, and he should be back to 100% by the time the 2021-22 season comes around.
The 34-year-old still has one year remaining ($1.8M AAV) on the contract extension he signed this past offseason. He played 53 games for the Flyers this season, averaging 18:49 minutes/game. He registered one goal, six assists, 77 hits, 72 blocks and was a +1.
