Philadelphia Flyers

The Flyers have placed defenceman Nick Seeler on the injured reserve with a lower-body injury and defenceman Adam Ginning has been recalled from the AHL's Lehigh Valley Phantoms. 

Seeler took a puck off the outside of his left foot on Monday against the St. Louis Blues. The 30-year-old has one goal and 12 points in 63 games this season for Philadelphia, his third with the team. 

A pending unrestricted free agent, TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reports that the Flyers continue to make progress on a contract extension with the veteran defenceman. 

Toronto Maple Leafs

Defenceman Mark Giordano (head) and forward David Kampf (illness) are both on the ice for practice this morning.

Giordano, 40, went on the injured reserve on Friday after a nasty spill into the end boards on Thursday night in the opening period left him with a concussion. He has one goals and six assists in 38 games this season. 

Kampf missed yesterday's practice with an illness and his status for tonight's game against Buffalo is to be determined. In 57 games this season, he has five goals and 11 points.
