Scott Hartnell out 4-8 weeks

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Thursday that winger Scott Hartnell could be out four to eight weeks after breaking the first metatarsal in his left foot.

Hartnell was hit by a shot taken by teammate Kimmo Timonen in Tuesday's loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The Flyers hosted the Rangers on Thursday night.

Hartnell had one assist in three games this season. Last year he posted 37 goals and 30 assists.
