The Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Chuck Fletcher announced a couple of updates on Thursday. 

Fletcher announced that forward Patrick Brown has been placed on the Covid-19 protocol list and is unavailable for the time being. 

We also got an update regarding a couple of injured defensemen. 

Ryan Ellis returned to practice and looks good for the season opener. 

Rasmus Ristolainen doesn't look as promising though. 

The defenseman was missing from practice once again and is currently listed as day to day with an upper body injury putting his status in doubt for the season opener. 

More details to come.
