NHL Injury Update - Scott Hartnell

Yahoo! Sports has reported that Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell will be out between 4-8 weeks with a broken left foot.  Hartnell had one point in three games this season.  This injury could have a major impact to the Flyers in this shortened regular season.  The Puck Daddy blog states:

 Eight weeks from now, the club will be preparing to play game 24 of 48, and needless to say, playing half the season without your top goal-scorer from 2011-12 is going to make success a little harder to come by.
 
We'll have to wait and see if Hartnell is indeed out for two months of regular season play.  If he is, the Flyers will be playing half their season without a player who notched 37 goals for them last season.
