Paul Holmgren, the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL, was injured in a bicycle accident on September 5. Holmgren was riding his bicycle in Camden, New Jersey when he lost control and fell off, according to reports. No other cyclist, motorists or pedestrians were involved, and Holmgren was wearing a bicycle helmet.
According to some sources, Holmgren suffered more serious injuries—broken ribs and a broken shoulder—but his complete medical status was not available. Officials are still looking into the accident.
Even experienced cyclists must be proactive to avoid accidents. Holmgren is a very tough individual. He played in the NHL for years. Fortunately, he was wearing a helmet, which can substantially reduce serious head injuries.
