The Flyers announced on Thursday forward Wayne Simmonds will not play in the preseason finale against the Capitals due to a lower-body injury. He is officially listed as day-to-day and is expected to make the trip to Cape Cod on Friday with the team.
Simmonds, 26, is a key offensive threat for the Flyers. The 6'2" forward scored a team-high 29 goals last season while setting career-highs in assists (31) and points (60) in 2013-14. Simmonds is a huge contributor on the Flyers power play as 15 of his 29 goals came on the man-advantage last season.
