Fleischmann to miss start of season
The team thinks the clot might have formed during Fleischmann's long flight home to the Czech Republic at the end of last season.
Coach Bruce Boudreau said Sunday that Fleischmann is expected to return to practice in early October.
Fleischmann scored a career-high 19 goals last season.
