Reports: Flyers' GM Holmgren hurt in bike crash
Monday, September 5, 2011
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren is reportedly hospitalized following a bike crash at the New Jersey shore.
Multiple reports say Holmgren was injured Monday while riding his bike in Avalon, N.J. He was listed in stable condition early Tuesday at a hospital in Camden, N.J.
Players offered their best wishes for Holmgren on Twitter, including James van Riemsdyk (van-REEMZ'-dyk), who tweeted Holmgren was wearing a helmet. Defenseman Matt Carle called it a "scary, scary situation."
The team did not immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking confirmation. A message left for an Avalon police spokesman was not immediately returned.
