Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros is out indefinitely after having surgery to repair a torn right Achilles tendon, the team announced Tuesday.

Meszaros suffered the injury during a training session in Slovakia last week, according to Flyers GM Paul Holmgren. The surgery was performed Tuesday morning at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia.

The loss of Meszaros is a big hit to a Flyers team which was already short on quality defensemen.

Meszaros was plus-6 for the Flyers last season and tallied seven goals and 18 assists.
