Flyers’ GM Paul Holmgren Injured In Cycling Accident

AVALON, N.J.  (AP) — Philadelphia Flyers’ general manager Paul Holmgren has been hospitalized following a bike crash at the Jersey shore.

Holmgren hurt himself Monday while riding his bike in Avalon, NJ.  He was listed in stable condition this morning at a hospital in Camden.

A team spokesman says Holmgren is sore but in good spirits.

Players offered their best wishes for Holmgren on Twitter, including James van Riemsdyk, who tweeted that Holmgren was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.  Defenseman Matt Carle called it a “scary, scary situation.”

Avalon police say Holmgren told officers he lost his balance while riding Monday morning and suffered a cut on his head and a scraped shin.  No one else was involved in the accident.
