AVALON — Paul Holmgren, the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, was hurt in a bicycle accident in Avalon Monday.

He was taken to Cape Regional Medical Center, according to reports, and was later admitted to Cooper Hospital in Camden.

Avalon Police were called to the scene of a bicycle accident on Monday, Sept. 5, at 11:28 a.m.

According to police, Holmgren, 55, of Somerdale, was riding his bicycle north on Dune Drive at 58th Street when he lost his balance and fell off. No other vehicles, bicycles, or pedestrians were involved in the accident, police said.

Avalon police say Holmgren suffered a cut to the right side of his head and a shin abrasion, and was transported to Cape Regional Medical Center in Cape May Court House, by the Avalon Rescue Squad. He was conscious and alert at the time of the accident and told police that he lost his balance while on his bicycle.

Holmgren was wearing a helmet at the time.

Avalon Patrolman Samuel Hoffman was the responding officer.

Some Philadelphia media later reported more serious injuries, including broken ribs and a broken shoulder. Avalon officials had no explanation for the discrepancy, and there was no immediate statement released from the Flyers NHL organization.

Holmgren has been the Flyers’ GM since 2006, after seven seasons as assistant general manager under Bobbie Clarke. He had also served as head coach of the Flyers and the Hartford Whalers, as well as playing 527 NHL games before retiring from the ice in 1985.
