Flyers GM Calls Audible On Timonen's Status

News: Flyers general manager Ron Hextall refuted coach Craig Berube's claims that Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) was set to return later in the season, suggesting a decision on the blueliner's status hasn't been made yet, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Kimmo communicated with us: 'I'm coming back?' I said, 'What do you mean?' He said, 'Well, it's on TV," Hextall said. "Kimmo and myself don't know whether Kimmo is coming back."
Analysis: While Berube never explicitly said Kimmo Timonen would return to action this season, his apparent optimism was enough for media outlets to take the leap and report as much. Hextall's refutation of the story doesn't indicate Timonen won't return this season; the Flyers are simply awaiting more information from doctors regarding the blueliner's test results. A more official announcement on Timonen's status should come before long.

Flyers' Timonen Planning On Late-Season Return

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) is preparing for a late-season return, NJ.com reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen has dealt with blood clots in his lungs and right leg, which made retirement a very real possibility. The clots in his lungs are now gone, and while he's still dealing with the issue in his leg, Timonen may be able to play without making a full recovery. It's still unclear when he will resume skating, so a potential return is quite a ways off. It does sound as if Timonen and the Flyers consider his return to be far better than a 50/50 proposition.

Flyers' Timonen Still Dealing With Blood Clots

News: Kimmo Timonen's medical checkup with doctors revealed Saturday that he is no longer experiencing blood clots in his lungs, but still is experiencing clots in his legs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: While the partially good news is better than no good news at all, the fact that Kimmo Timonen still has clotting of any sort will likely prevent him from taking the ice in the near future. The 39-year-old Timonen remains hopeful of keeping his career going, but he'll look to make a final decision on his status after consulting with multiple doctors during a conference call next Wednesday. Timonen was first diagnosed with the blood clots back in August and hasn't practiced with the Flyers since.

CT Scan On Tap For Flyers' Timonen

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots in leg) will have a CT scan at some point in mid-January, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Multiple medical experts will assess Kimmo Timonen's scans to determine whether the blueliner can continue his career, or if the clots will force his retirement. Even if Timonen receives good news on that front, he'll remain at risk for further clotting should he decide to keep playing. Given his advancing age and the life-threatening ramifications at hand, it still seems unlikely that he'll suit up at any point in the second half of this season, and quite possibly, ever again.

Flyers' Timonen Unlikely To Play This Season

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) in leg confirmed Thursday that the chances of him playing this season are "really slim," Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Though he didn't announce his retirement as some expected Thursday, Kimmo Timonen acknowledged that the blood clots in his lungs and right leg will keep him out multiple months, putting his career in jeopardy. Timonen will have to wait until January to see if his medical tests reveal any dissipation from the blood clots, but it sounds entirely possible that we've seen the last of the respected defenseman in the NHL. Even in the deepest of leagues, it's tough to justify stashing him on the bench until he returns to health, since it's certainly far from a given that that will happen by the end of the season.

Flyers' Timonen Making Apparent Progress

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) plans on playing in the Flyers' benefit golf invitational Sept. 16, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Obviously, participating in a golf outing is a far cry from getting back on the ice, but it at least provides an apparent indication that Kimmo Timonen is making progress. However, his condition is still viewed as a long-term concern, and the Flyers seem to be preparing for the upcoming season with the assumption that Timonen won't be available at any point.

Flyers Planning On Season Without Timonen (Clots)

News: Kimmo Timonen (blood clots) is back in the U.S. after undergoing treatment in Finland, but the Flyers are planning as though he won't be contributing to the squad this season, reports the Courier-Post.
Analysis: "We haven't had a chance to look at him yet," general manager Ron Hextall said, "but there's something going on there" when asked if Kimmo Timonen was on a regimen of blood thinners like warfarin or herparin. Both drugs are used to prevent clots from developing in the future, but put the patient at risk of bruising and make it hard to get bleeding wounds to clot. Hockey would definitely be off-limits because of the body contact, but Timonen is making good progress.

Flyers' Timonen Dealing With Blood Clots

News: Kimmo Timonen is dealing with blood clots in both of his lungs, as well as his right leg, Rogers Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen, at 39 years old, just signed a one-year deal to remain with the Flyers this season; however, given his grave health concerns, the team is unsure about his playing status. The goalie is currently receiving medical treatment in Finland, where we send him out best wishes in overcoming such serious complications.

News: TImonen signed a one-year deal with the Flyers on Friday, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Kimmo Timonen played 77 games for the Flyers in 2013-14, scoring six goals and 35 total points. At 39 years old, he's essentially a year-to-year player, and a statistical regression is certainly possible.

Flyers' Timonen Gets Goal In Finale

News: Kimmo Timonen tallied a goal and an assist in Sunday's shootout loss to the Hurricanes.
Analysis: So ends another respectable campaign for the 39-year-old blueliner, who cracked the 30-point plateau for the 12th time in his career. Even if he's slowed down a bit since his prime years with the Predators, Kimmo Timonen figures to remain an effective producer on the offensive end until he decides to retire.

Analysis: Kimmo Timonen, who has notched back-to-back two-point games, saw 19:52 worth of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Bruins, but he's day-to-day now in advance of Tuesday's game against the Blues after taking a shot off the chin on Sunday.

Flyers' Timonen Not Traveling With Team

News: Kimmo Timonen (upper body) did not travel with the team to St. Louis, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: The team described Kimmo Timonen as day-to-day after taking a shot off the chin Sunday against the Bruins, but it looks like he'll be out at least for Tuesday's matchup with the Blues. Erik Gustafsson – who has been a healthy scratch in 14 straight games – will replace Timonen on the Flyers' blue line.

Timonen Busy In Philly Win

News: Kimmo Timonen grabbed two power-play assists in Friday's 4-2 win over Toronto, ending a three-game scoring drought.
Analysis: After briefly turning back the clock with seven points in four games earlier this month, Kimmo Timonen entered Friday with just two assists in his last eight contests. Timonen is one of Philadelphia's more reliable defensemen in terms of offensive output and should see continued scoring chances down the stretch.

Flyers' Timonen: Three More Points

News: Kimmo Timonen assisted thrice in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Capitals.
Analysis: Owners have to be happy with a five-point weekend from the aging defenseman, especially since he caused much worry after missing the first game back from the Olympics. Apparently there really is no injury. He's a go in nearly all lineups.
