    Flyers prospect Sam Morin has surgery on both wrists

    Another Flyer underwent surgery and is already in rehab.
     
    Defenseman Sam Morin, who was a call-up for the Flyers final road game in New Jersey, underwent successful surgery on both wrists recently.
     
    General manager Ron Hextall would not discuss the surgery or why it was performed but confirmed to CSNPhilly.com that it had occurred early Saturday morning.
     
    Morin, who clearly demonstrated in his only appearance with the club that he is NHL-ready, is expected to compete for at one or possibly two openings this fall in training camp.
     
    Morin posted photos of his wrists on Instagram. 
     
    Tony Androckitis, who covers the Lehigh Valley Phantoms for Highland Park Hockey, first reported on Friday that Morin appeared to have had surgery on his right wrist. Turns out, it was both wrists.
     
    Wrist surgery is not an unusual one for the Flyers.
     
    Claude Giroux had dual wrist surgery in July of 2012.
