BREAKING: Philadelphia Flyers Top Prospect Suffers Disappointing Setback

Published January 15, 2024 at 12:05

The Philadelphia Flyers have had an issue with prospects as of late, but one player that they expect to be a star for them one day is Russian dynamo Matvei Michkov.

The Flyers top pick has impressed in the KHL

In 34 games in the KHL this season, Michkov has already tallied an impressive 29 points, and could be well on his way to stardom.

Unfortunately, his development has taken a major hit, as he last played on January 7th, with reporters revealing that it's a sickness holding him back, and he may still be out for a while.

The setback isn't expected to end his season and it's not considered too serious, but taking time away from his development is certainly a hit for Michkov and the Flyers.

Probably won't see him for a bit still unless he just miraculously gets back into game shape.

Last played just over a week ago - Jan 7 2024.

The Flyers core is expected to include Michkov as soon as possible, as he appears ready to play in the worlds top league, but for now we hope he gets better and gets back on the ice as soon as possible.
