General Manager Philadelphia Flyers/Phantoms Paul Holmgren has described Niittymaki's surgery as cleanup. Antero Nittymaki will be out for about 4-6 weeks following the surgery on his left hip.

Paul Holmgren: "Last Friday, Antero had a small surgical procedure done on his left hip where he had some fluid drained and also some loose bodies that were in his joint...It goes back to little over month ago. He had a mild concern from his training regiment in Finland."
