Flyers say Gagne should be fine after tweaking groin at Olympic camp

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Flyers forward Simon Gagne has a mild groin strain and should be ready for training camp next month.

Gagne injured his groin Monday night while practising with Team Canada and returned to Philadelphia to be examined by team doctor Peter DeLuca.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said Wednesday that Gagne received an injection and can return to the ice in two weeks, in time for the start of training camp on Sept. 12.

The left-winger was third on the team with 74 points last season and scored 34 goals, second on the team behind Jeff Carter.

Gagne had hip surgery to remove a bone spur and adhesions in May.
