Upshall could miss up to six weeks with wrist injury

PHILADELPHIA -- Flyers forward Scottie Upshall could miss up
to six weeks with a broken wrist and forward R.J. Umberger also needs surgery on his hand and could miss two weeks.

Upshall and Umberger were both hurt in Philadelphia's 4-2 loss
against Ottawa on Tuesday night and the Flyers said both players
were scheduled for surgery Thursday.

The Flyers also said Wednesday that defenseman Randy Jones is out
through the weekend with a right hip flexor injury and right wing
Joffrey Lupul needs his injured left wrist examined.

Upshall was acquired from Nashville at last year's trade
deadline in the Peter Forsberg deal and finished with eight goals
and 16 points last season.

Umberger broke the pinky finger on his left hand.
