October 31st, 2007

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers announced Wednesday that veteran defenseman Derian Hatcher will have surgery on his left knee Thursday, and will miss three to four weeks.

The Flyers recalled 24-year old defenseman Nate Guenin from the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms to occupy Hatcher's roster spot.

Hatcher, the 35-year old anchor of the Atlantic Division-leading Flyers' defensive corps, has two assists and is a plus-seven in nine games so far this season. The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder was the winner of the team's Barry Ashbee Trophy as the most outstanding defenseman in 2006-07, when he totaled three goals and six assists while playing all 82 games.

Philadelphia has opened the season 7-3-0 following a disappointing 22-48-12 campaign a year ago.
