Brian Elliott may need to install some orange cones around his crease.

Elliott returned to practice Wednesday and was immediately greeted with a Jake Voracek shot to his mask that left the Flyers' netminder appearing a little woozy.

This unfortunate incident came just three days after Travis Konecny collided with Elliott during Sundaya€™s practice session in Arizona.A 

a€œIt was just a 2-on-1 drill with a pass across and I tried to slide across when (a player to be named later) came and it was either a knee or a leg right to the melon," Elliott said Wednesday. a€œI was feeling not the greatest right after, but I progressively got better throughout the past couple of days.a€

When asked if the a€œplayer to be named latera€ has picked up a dinner check for his inadvertent collision, Elliott responded, a€œThat would be a first.a€
