Zac Rinaldo not only scored his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 3-1 win over Montreal, but the feisty winger suffered a high ankle sprain and will miss about six weeks, the club announced on Thursday.

Rinaldo, who has been getting time on the penalty kill lately, notched the first game-winning goal of his career Wednesday, and after the game he joked with reporters and seemed fine.

The injury may have occurred during Rinaldo's second-period fight with Montreal's Brandon Prust.

The Flyers are also without winger Matt Read, who is out with a concussion.
