Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk will miss 4-6 weeks of action following surgery on March 6.

Van Riemsdyk departed Thursday's game against the New York Islanders late in the first period after sliding on the ice to block a shot. He limped noticeably off the ice favoring his leg, and was later diagnosed with a broken bone in his left foot.

"James will have surgery on Mar. 6 to repair a broken bone in his left foot. Dr. Steven Raikin will put a plate in to help with the healing process. James will be out 4-6 weeks," Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said on Friday.

Van Riemsdyk has 11 goals and 13 assists in 43 games this season.
