*James van Riemsdyk is hurt. Pretty bad. Because we can’t ever have nice things. [BSH]

*Based on the lines they ran in practice yesterday, it would appear that Jordan Weal will get the nod tonight against the Sharks. [Philly.com]

*For subscribers, Charles breaks down what this injury means for the team. [The Athletic]

*Dave Hakstol has said a lot of positive things about Christian Folin, who has been objectively bad the whole time he’s been here, but if yesterday’s practice pairings are any indication, he’ll be sitting tonight. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Claude Giroux is underrated by you, the rest of the fans, the league, Hockey Canada...the list goes on and on. This long read will give you a new appreciation for our captain. [Sportsnet]

*Have you been wondering what John Boruk thinks is the Flyers’ biggest issue on defense? No? Well here it is anyway. [NBC Sports Philly]

*It would appear, so far at least, that Wayne Simmonds is back. Which is going to make this contract thing pretty interesting. [BSH]

*In what should be a surprise to no one, the NHLPA has filed an appeal of Tom Wilson’s absolutely warranted 20-game suspension. [Yahoo Sports]

*I think over-the-top goal celebrations are fun, so please enjoy this list of the best ones ever. [ProHockeyTalk]

*And finally, if you’re interesting in supporting the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, they’ve got a cool event coming up that you might want to consider. [BSH]
