PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) - It did not take long for the Philadelphia Flyers to have a player land on the sidelines.

The Flyers on Saturday announced defenseman Mike Rathje will be out indefinitely with a herniated L5 disk in his back.

In 2005-06, Philadelphia had 388 man-games lost due to injury, and a host of players underwent surgery during the offseason.

That'll hurt. Hatchers was struggling last year, and Rathje may of as well in the season, but he stepped up in the end and had a decent playoffs.

A back injury? That's nothing he'll make a speedy recovery from.
