No surgery for Flyers' van RiemsdykJun 15, 2012 - 3:17 PM Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren has confirmed that forward James van Riemsdyk will not have hip surgery.
Rather, the 23-year-old New Jersey native will rehab the injury.
"After consultation with various doctors regarding James' hip injury, we have come to the conclusion that surgery is not necessary," Holmgren said in a statement issued Friday morning. "We will treat James' hip with alternative therapies and non-surgical procedures. It is expected that James will be 100 percent well before training camp begins."
Van Riemsdyk was limited to 43 regular-season games last season due to injuries, most notably a concussion and broken left foot. He registered 11 goals and 13 assists before returning for seven playoff games.
The second overall pick in the 2007 draft, van Riemsdyk has scored 47 goals and collected 52 assists in 196 career games.
