If you’re looking for Flyers center Nolan Patrick to play again this season because he took part in yesterday’s skate, think again.
Patrick is still considered week to week because of migraines that have kept him out all season.
“My expectations are that Nolan is not coming back” this season. “In my mind, he hasn’t been here since the beginning of the year, and I’m moving forward. I work with the guys that are here,” coach Alain Vigneault said after the morning skate.
Vigneault said there was not a medical report that told him Patrick would be out for the entire season.
“This is just my thinking,” he said. “He hasn’t been here since Day 1, so I’m going in this as if he’s not here, and if it ever changes, someone will let me know. But for now, he’s not available and I work with the guys that are available.”
