Brayden Schenn Injury: Broken foot will keep No. 10 out for 'a few weeks'

MONTREAL, CANADA - OCTOBER 26: Brayden Schenn #10 of the Philadelphia Flyers and P.K. Subban #76 of the Montreal Canadiens chase the puck into the corner during the NHL game at the Bell Centre on October 26, 2011 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. (Photo by Richard Wolowicz/Getty Images)

Brayden Schenn is injured. Paul Holmgren confirmed to the media this afternoon, as passed along by Tim Panaccio, that he has a broken left foot, likely suffered when blocking a shot in the game on Wednesday night against Montreal. Damn you, P.K. Subban.

Schenn was reportedly seen with a boot on his foot leaving the Bell Centre after the game, so that's obviously pretty bad. Renaud Lavoie of RDS in Canada was the first to report the news, saying that the Flyers expect Schenn to miss a few weeks. UPDATE: Flyers announced a timeline of four to six weeks.

Tough break. At the very least, this certainly means that Sean Couturier will be bumped off the fourth line, and since he's apparently sticking around past nine games and there's nothing we can do about that, at least he'll now be getting some tougher minutes -- and likely, several more of them per game. That is until Schenn comes back and we're right back in the same position.

It appears as though Zac Rinaldo has been called up to replace Schenn in the lineup. Tim McManus at the Glens Falls Post-Star reported that news this morning, also mentioning that defenseman Erik Gustafsson has packed his bags for Philadelphia.

We'd expect Matt Walker will be sent to the Phantoms, given his salary and the fact that he's already cleared waivers and can be sent directly to Adirondack without doing so again. Oh, and his horrible play. That too.
