The Flyers expressed a great deal of relief on Wednesday when the team was finally able to locate and waive Russian winger Nik Zherdev, who went missing on Friday.

“We are just so glad to know he’s OK and no longer a member of this team,” said head coach Peter Laviolette. “We found him wandering the streets of New York, which is generally frown upon while a game is going on. Since we want to encourage our players to attend games, we were forced to waive Nik.”

As a result of Zherdev’s disappearance, the Flyers have begun handing out game schedule magnets to each player in addition to hourly reminders that they get paid to show up and play hockey for a living.
