February 16th, 2010 No Comments

Written By: Mark “The Hard Hitter” Ritter Pride, determination, hustle, toughness, skill and loyalty- just a few of the characteristics that make up what it takes to be a Philadelphia Flyer.

Getzlaf, who had injured his ankle when he become tangled up with Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown in Monday night’s NHL tilt, underwent an MRI on Tuesday. The results of the MRI were inconclusive at the time, leading Team Canada Executive Director Steve Yzerman to ask Philadelphia Flyers forward Jeff Carter to be on standby as a possible replacement. Carter flew to Vancouver soon after the Flyers last game before the Olympic break and has since sat patiently awaiting Yzerman’s final decision. Sunday evening Getzlaf suited up for the Anaheim Ducks. It was the first game action he had seen since his injury and, by all accounts, was to be the measuring stick for which Yzerman would determine his readiness to play for
