Brayden Schenn broke his foot in the Flyers 5-1 loss to Montreal and will now miss 4-6 weeks according to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.

The Flyers also recalled defenseman Eric Gustafsson and forward Zac Rinaldo. Both are available for tonight's game against Winnipeg, but it is uncertain whether either will play.

Schenn broke his foot while blocking a shot from Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban. Schenn remained in the game afterward, but the break was discovered post game.

The addition of Gustafsson and Rinaldo poses an interesting scenario for the Flyers salary cap wise.

Gustafsson makes $900,000 and Rinaldo $544,444. They didn't have room for both, but rather then send Matt Walker down to the Phantoms to clear the space, they placed Schenn on the long-term injury list (LTIR) marking their third player on the list (along with Ian Laperriere and Blair Betts).

With that the case, it's pretty certain the Flyers will be deferring any bonus money from this year that may be accrued to next season.
