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.
