PYETT DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER

PHILADELPHIA - Defenceman Logan Pyett of the Philadelphia Flyers' AHL affiliate has been diagnosed with a form of cancer and will be out indefinitely.

The team said Friday the 27-year-old from Milestone, SK has a sarcoma in his upper leg. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told CSNPhilly.com there's "a lot of positive signs'' and the "indications are it's fairly isolated in his leg.''

Pyett, a former captain with the WHL's Regina Pats, signed a one-year contract with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms after being at the Flyers' training camp. He was selected by Detroit in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL entry draft. He signed as a free agent with the New York Rangers in 2012 and spent two seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League.
