CSNPhilly's Tim Panaccio is reporting that Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has been injured in a bike accident in Avalon and hospitalized at Cooper Medical Center in Camden. Holmgren reportedly sustained a broken shoulder and broken ribs.
Holmgren's $51 million man was the first offer his well wishes for the boss on Twitter....
I hope Paul is all right and gets well soon
Paul Holmgren took over as Flyers GM in 2006/2007 season when Bobby Clarke resigned. The Flyers were the worst team in the NHL that season, but returned to the playoffs the following year under Holmgren's guidance. He had a busy summer in which he made two blockbuster trades involving faces of the franchise, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, as well as luring Ilya Bryzgalov to Philly in a third blockbuster deal.
