Following Wednesday’s practice in Voorhees, the Philadelphia Flyers are ready to have one of their top pieces and biggest acquisition in free agency back on Thursday night. James van Riemsdyk appears set to return against the New Jersey Devils.
After only playing two games, and missing the last 16 due to a lower-body injury, van Riemsdyk is set to make his return in a vital game for Philadelphia. Despite winning three straight, the Flyers were not able to come back against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night in a 2-1 loss at the Wells Fargo Center. Thursday’s game will be the fourth in the five-game homestand, which concludes on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
