News: Lecavalier (foot) was placed on injured reserve Friday, CSNPhilly.com's Sarah Baicker reports.
Impact: Lecavalier returned to practice Friday for the first time since suffering the injury Oct. 11. Because he's already missed over a week of action, the Flyers will be able to stash Lecavalier on injured reserve retroactively. Lecavalier looks on track to play at some point next week, perhaps as early as Tuesday against the Kings.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday, CSNPhilly.com's Sarah Baicker reports.
Impact: With Coburn ruled out four weeks Friday due to the injury, he'll unsurprisingly move to IR to create some roster space. Coburn suffered the foot injury in the Flyers' first game of the season against the Bruins, but had taken pregame warmups as a recently as Tuesday before suffering a setback. Mark Alt will be recalled from AHL Adirondback in a corresponding move.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Updating a previous report, it no longer looks like Alt will be recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley prior to Saturday's game, Sarah Baicker of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Impact: After Braydon Coburn (lower body) was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day, it was expected that Alt would be the team's top choice to fill his spot on the 23-man roster. Instead, general manager Ron Hextall made the surprising decision to appoint top blue line prospect Shayne Gostisbehere for Coburn's spot. Andrew MacDonald is out for a similarly lengthy period of time as Coburn and figures to be placed on the IR in the coming days as well, so perhaps Alt could still have the opportunity to join the Flyers before long.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | STATS
News: MacDonald is expected to miss four weeks with a lower-body injury.
Impact: MacDonald must have suffered the injury in Wednesday's win over the Penguins, though he had 21:25 of ice time.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | STATS
News: Rinaldo left in first period of Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh with an upper-body injury and didn't return.
Impact: It's not clear how serious the injury is.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Gostisbehere was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.
Impact: After GM Ron Hextall suggested earlier in the day that he wouldn't promote any of the team's prized defensemen prospects in the wake of the long-term injuries to Andrew MacDonald and Braydon Coburn, he evidently had a change of heart in the afternoon. As a result, Gostisbehere will join the Flyers in advance of Saturday's game against the Red Wings, likely as a member of the lineup. The 21-year-old was spectacular during training camp and has carried over those successes to the minors thus far, recording two assists in his three games.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Alt will be recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley prior to Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Sarah Baicker of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Impact: GM Ron Hextall suggested that Alt would be the only immediate call-up the Flyers would add in the wake of top-four blueliners Andrew MacDonald and Braydon Coburn being ruled out for four weeks with lower-body injuries. The 23-year-old Alt had one point in three games with Lehigh Valley, after supplying 26 in 75 contests at the AHL level in 2013-14.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rinaldo (upper body) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Rinaldo's absence from Friday's practice was enough to convince the Flyers that he wouldn't be ready to go for the tilt with the Red Wings. He could return to the ice over the next day or two to give him a better shot at playing Tuesday against the Kings, but expect the ailing Flyers to recall a forward from the minors over the weekend as insurance.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lecavalier (foot) said he will most realistically return to action next Thursday against the Lightning, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Lecavalier was able to skate on his own prior to Friday's session and could be cleared to resume practicing with the team over the next couple of days. While he didn't rule out a return to action as early as Tuesday against the Kings, it seems more likely that he'll first be up to full speed Thursday, when the Flyers will take on his former squad. Philadelphia could still retroactively stash Lecavalier on injured reserve over the weekend in order to add an extra forward, but because he's already missed more than the minimum seven days, he'll be eligible for activation as soon as the Flyers deem him ready.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rinaldo (upper body) did not practice Friday, CSN's Sarah Baicker reports.
Impact: Rinaldo will be held out due to the upper-body injury he suffered in Wednesday's game. He is considered day-to-day, so it seems there is a chance he will play in the Flyers' next game Saturday against the Red Wings.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacDonald (lower body) will be out four weeks, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Impact: He had appeared in all seven of the Flyers contests, recording three points and an average ice time of 22:55, ranking second on the team. This leaves the Flyers thin on defense, as Braydon Coburn will also miss another four weeks with a lower-body injury. Call-ups for the injured defensemen are undetermined at this time.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) will be out four weeks, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Impact: Coburn has already missed two weeks with the injury, and it was thought he would be able to return earlier in the week, but the latest news confirms the ailment was more severe than anticipated. Andrew MacDonald will also be out for about a month with a lower-body injury, so the Flyers are noticeably thin on defense. Call-ups for the injured defensemen are undetermined at this time.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | STATS
News: Voracek had a pair of assists in a 5-3 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.
Impact: The Philadelphia winger has two goals and seven assists in his first seven games and is tied with team captain Claude Giroux for the points lead. He has one goal and four assists in the last three games.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | STATS
News: Umberger had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.
Impact: Perhaps this is a sign that the Philadelphia center is shaking out of his slow start. He had one assist in his first six games.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lecavalier (foot) will resume skating on his own Friday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Impact: Though the fact that he's back on the ice creates some optimism, Lecavalier likely won't be cleared for a return to the Flyers lineup until next Tuesday at the earliest. Once he's ready to go, he'll likely reclaim the center spot on the second- or third-line, plunging Pierre-Edouard Bellemare down the depth chart.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | STATS
News: Couturier had a goal and two assists in a 5-3 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.
Impact: The Philadelphia center had two goals in his first six games.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Umberger collected a goal, an assist and five PIM in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.
Impact: It's the 32-year-old's first goal with his original team, and he seems to have settled in nicely. He's averaging just over 15 minutes of ice time, which fantasy owners hope will lead to a return to his old scoring ways -- Umberger's cleared 50 points three times in his career.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bellemare scored his first NHL goal in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Pittsburgh.
Impact: Bellemare took a pretty feed from Sean Couturier and redirected it past Penguins keeper Marc-Andre Fleury. It's his first point of the season, though his ice time could be limited once center Vincent Lecavalier (foot) returns.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Streit scored his second goal of the season in Wednesday's 5-3 win over Pittsburgh.
Impact: Streit has seven points through seven games, so he's on pace to match his total from last season. Even better news for owners: He's scored two goals already. Streit hasn't scored more than 10 goals since the 2009-2010 campaign.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Emery is expected to receive the start in goal Wednesday against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Top goalie Steve Mason has been brutal in five turns this season (0-3-1, 3.83 GAA, .878 save percentage), so opportunity could knock here for Emery if he's able to turn in a respectable outing against a tough Penguins squad. Mason's larger contract will probably prevent Emery from displacing him as the team's unquestioned starter, but the backup could possibly take on a larger workload if he can give the Flyers some more stability in goal in his subsequent outings.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Read has no goals and three assists through six games this season.
Impact: After a 22-goal campaign last season, Read has yet to find the back of the net this year. He should get some more opportunities, as he's been playing on the team's second power-play unit, but for now his slow start should be slightly worrisome.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Couturier notched a goal and two assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.
Impact: The center is still just 21 years old, but 2014-15 will be his fourth full season in the NHL, and he seems to be developing into really solid player already. He now has three goals and two assists through seven games this season.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Giroux collected two assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.
Impact: Giroux now has two goals and seven assists through his first seven games, and seems to have picked up right where he left off last season. He and linemate Jakub Voracek each have nine points so far, and are proving to be one of the best fantasy duos in the league so far.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Voracek collected two assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.
Impact: Voracek is quickly proving to be one of the most valuable fantasy wingers in the league, helping his cause with two more points Wednesday night. He now has two goals and seven assists through seven games, and with the Flyers' strategy mostly consisting of trying to outscore their opponents, don't expect him to slow down anytime soon.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Emery allowed three goals on 25 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.
Impact: With Wednesday being the Flyers' second game in as many nights, Emery got the call between the pipes to give starter Steve Mason some rest. Emery wasn't spectacular, but he did enough to earn a victory behind Philly's high-powered offense.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rinaldo suffered an upper-body injury in Wednesday's game and is unlikely to return, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.
Impact: The extent of Rinaldo's setback is uncertain, but expect an update on his status as more details become available.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) will not play Wednesday against the Penguins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: The hope was that Coburn would be able to return Tuesday following a two-week absence, but he didn't fare well in warmups and ended up as a late scratch. The 29-year-old will be forced to sit Wednesday as well, and he should be considered questionable to take the ice Saturday until there's indication otherwise.
Wed. Oct 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Emery will start Wednesday against the Penguins, Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly.com reports.
Impact: As expected, Emery will get the start in goal Wednesday following another lackluster showing from Steve Mason on Tuesday. Through five starts this season, Mason has a 3.83 GAA and .878 save percentage, so a strong effort Wednesday could earn Emery at least a slightly larger share of the opportunities moving forward.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mason turned aside 39 shots Tuesday, but allowed four goals in a shutout loss to the Blackhawks.
Impact: Mason's been unable to find his way into the win column in five starts so far this season, with three regulation losses, an overtime loss and a no-decision to show for it. He can't deflect the blame onto his offense, either, as Mason's allowed 18 goals in five games so far this year.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Though he looked set to return to action Tuesday versus the Blackhawks, Coburn (lower body) ended up being a late scratch by the Flyers, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
Impact: It seems likely that Coburn didn't feel 100 percent healthy during warmups, which may have prompted the Flyers to keep him out as a precaution. Coburn will miss his fifth straight contest and turn his focus toward getting ready for Wednesday's tilt with the Penguins.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) will play Tuesday versus the Blackhawks, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: As anticipated, Coborn was given the go-ahead to return to the lineup after he completed the morning skate without any further setbacks. He'll step back into a top-four role on defense following his four-game hiatus.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Blackhawks, CSN's Tim Panaccio reports.
Impact: The Flyers have yet to rule Coburn either in or out of Tuesday's game, but he took part in Tuesday's morning skate and head coach Craig Berube thinks he's ready to play, so it seems more likely than not that he'll suit up Tuesday.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mason will start Tuesday against the Blackhawks, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Sam Carchidi reports.
Impact: Mason will look to get back on track after being pulled before the third period in his last start Saturday. He will take on a Chicago team that is off to a 3-0-1 start, but will be without regular goaltender Corey Crawford, who's out with an upper-body injury.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) is expected to play Tuesday against the Blackhawks, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Impact: Coburn sat out Saturday's game against the Stars, but felt much better Monday, and should be back in the lineup for Tuesday's contest. Coburn was plus-1 in the first game of the season, but hasn't been healthy since, and has yet to crack the score sheet.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Giroux had one goal and one assist Saturday.
Impact: The superstar is sizzling with seven points in a four-game surge.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: MacDonald had one goal and one assist Saturday.
Impact: MacDonald is not known for his fantasy production.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Streit had two assists Saturday.
Impact: Streit has six points in a four-game run.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Voracek scored once and added two assists Saturday.
Impact: Voracek is sizzling with seven points so far.
Sun. Oct 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Mason started in goal for the Flyers and allowed four goals on 18 shots through two periods before being replaced by Ray Emery to start the third Saturday.
Impact: Mason hasn't looked good with a 3.78 GAA as he searches for his first win.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Emery made four saves on five shots to give the Flyers their first win of the season Saturday. He started the third period in relief of Steve Mason, who was pulled after giving up four goals on 18 shots.
Impact: Emery didn't get much action, but he was good enough Saturday, helping the Flyers pick up that important first victory. If Mason continues to struggle, look for Emery to see his fair share of action in the cage. Make no mistake, though: Mason is currently the Flyers' clear-cut starting goalie.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mason was pulled from Saturday's game against the Stars after giving up four goals on 18 shots.
Impact: Ray Emery started the third period, backstopping the Flyers to a 6-5 comeback win over Dallas. Mason is 0-2-1 on the season with a .865 save percentage and 3.78 GAA. With the defense in front of him, Mason isn't likely to put up very good individual totals this season. He should, however, begin to pile up the wins as the Flyers find their groove. If Mason continues to struggle, though, Emery could see some starts in his place.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Streit added another two assists in Saturday's comeback win over Dallas.
Impact: Streit set up Michael Raffl to tie the game late in the third period before feeding Claude Giroux for a power-play goal in overtime. Talk about making your points count. Streit now has six points in his last four games while averaging 24:38 of ice time. He's money on a Philadelphia team that scores a whopping number of goals.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Raffl sniped the game-tying goal in the third period of Saturday's 6-5 win over the Stars.
Impact: Raffl has two goals to start the season. He scored just nine in 68 appearances last season, so this is a strong start for the European import. If he can translate his Swedish-league success to the NHL, he has the potential to bag enough points to be relevant in a wide variety of formats.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: MacDonald scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Stars.
Impact: MacDonald is showing the Flyers he's worth the six-year, $30 million extension they threw at him in April. The defenseman has three points in the first five contests, a pace that -- if he can maintain it -- would lead him to smash his points total (28) from last season. Still, he's a defenseman first, and his minus-2 rating blemishes an otherwise strong start.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Voracek scored a goal and assisted twice in Saturday's 6-5 overtime win in Dallas.
Impact: Voracek is riding a five-game points streak, and is off to a hot start. He's keeping pace with linemate Claude Giroux -- both have seven points through the first five games. His offensive merits have come at a cost, though -- he's sporting a minus-2 thus far.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Giroux scored the overtime-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's comeback win over Dallas.
Impact: Giroux struck in overtime on a power play, taking a pass from Mark Streit and blasting a one-timer past Kari Lehtonen to give the Flyers their first win of the season. Giroux now has two goals, three assists and an impressive 25 shots on goal through five games. The Flyers may struggle defensively, but that's none of your concern, as Giroux leads a lethal offensive attack in Philadelphia. Expect another point-per-game season from the 26-year-old center.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Couturier scored in the first period of Saturday's 6-5 win over Dallas.
Impact: Couturier has two goals through the first five games of the season, an encouraging sign for owners looking to collect dividends on his offensive upside.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Coburn was on the ice for Saturday's morning session, but the defenseman said he still wasn't feeling comfortable enough while skating to make his return to the lineup. Coach Craig Berube was optimistic that Coburn would slot back in Tuesday against the Blackhawks, but he'll probably need to get in another practice or two before his return is confirmed.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Akeson will be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Akeson hasn't taken well to checking-line duty in the first two weeks of the season, accruing no points through four games. While he has shown a willingness to hit (seven) in his limited ice time, he's unlikely to yield much fantasy value so long as he remains outside of the team's top-six forward ranks.
Sat. Oct 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mason will be in the net Saturday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Mason has performed woefully in his first three starts this season (0-2-1, 3.30 GAA, .884 save percentage), but coach Craig Berube hasn't seemed to waver in his support of the goalie, who was inked to a three-year extension in January. Even so, it may be tough for Mason to come away with his first win Saturday, matching up on the road against a tough Dallas squad that has received stellar play thus far from its own No. 1 netminder, Kari Lehtonen.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coach Craig Berube said Coburn (lower body) is "iffy" for Saturday's game against the Stars, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Impact: Coburn resumed practicing Wednesday and was back on a pairing with Andrew MacDonald on Friday, but it doesn't look like the injury isn't entirely behind him just yet. The Flyers will assess his condition during Saturday's morning skate, but if it's determined he's not yet 100 percent healthy, Coburn would likely sit out for his fourth straight game.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Simmons scored his fifth goal and added his second assist of the season in a shootout loss to Anaheim on Tuesday.
Impact: Simmonds figures to slow down from this ridiculous pace but fantasy owners are reaping the benefits for the time being.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | STATS
News: Giroux was credited with two assists in Tuesday's shootout loss to Anaheim.
Impact: Giroux still has just one goal this season on 19 shots.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: The Flyers recalled VandeVelde fom AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.
Impact: VandeVelde appeared in 18 games with the Flyers last season and recorded an assist and six PIM. He will likely serve as the Flyers' extra forward most nights and rotate into the lineup as needed.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Coburn was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice, mixing in with regular pairing partner Andrew MacDonald during the session. His return would offer a helpful upgrade to the team's blue line, but perhaps not a significant enough one to remedy the Flyers' 0-2-2 start to the campaign.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Del Zotto assisted on Jakub Voracek's game-tying third-period goal in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
Impact: Del Zotto's stock has plummeted considerably since his 41-point showing in the 2011-12 season, but the 24-year-old still has some upside to offer as a puck-mover. Even so, he's likely only holding down a regular spot on the Philadelphia blue line due to a lack of better options. Del Zotto is still something of a liability in his own end, and it wouldn't be surprising if his minus-4 rating only worsens from here.
Wed. Oct 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Voracek contributed a goal in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
Impact: Voracek's tally with 5:20 left in regulation sent the game into overtime, but the winger was unable to put the puck past goalie Frederik Andersen during the shootout. The defeat kept the Flyers winless in their four games this season, but Voracek has mostly pulled his own weight thus far. Though he owns a minus-3 rating over his 18 minutes of ice time per game, he's collected a goal and three assists.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Simmonds picked up a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
Impact: That makes five goals and seven points over the last three games for Simmonds, with four of them coming on the power play. That's a hell of a way to get started building on your first 60-point season.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Giroux picked up two assists and put a game-high seven shots on goal Tuesday in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Ducks.
Impact: Giroux's now got points in three straight since opening the season with a quiet game, though he's scored just once on 19 shots. Of course, that rate is sure to come up.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mason allowed three goals on 28 shots and two more in the shootout during Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Ducks.
Impact: The Flyers are 0-2-2 to start the year, and Mason's been in net for three of those losses. After the way he fell off following a hot start to his career in Columbus, it's a bit unsettling to see Mason looking rough early on, but it's too soon to panic.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Grossmann (illness) is expected to play Tuesday against the Ducks, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Grossmann missed Monday's practice with a stomach virus, but all indications are that he'll be healthy enough to play Tuesday. He's set to pair up with Mark Streit.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) could skate Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Coburn was using crutches as recently as Monday, but it appears the Flyers were just being cautious, as Coburn should be able to return to the ice soon, even if he does not Wednesday.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mason will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Ducks.
Impact: Mason will be looking for his first victory of the season in his third start, but that will not come easy against a Ducks squad that lit the lamp 12 times in its first three games.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Flyers coach Craig Berube said he expects "quick and stronger" play from the 23-year-old Schenn, reports CSN Philadelphia.
Impact: Schenn was shifted to right wing prior to Saturday's loss to Montreal. He collected his first point in the game, though he also saw his ice time reduced from the first two games. Schenn posted 41 points in a full season last year, so he can certainly produce. With Vinny Lecavalier out for at least two weeks, though, he'll now be adjusting to a new center, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare, in addition to his new position.
Tue. Oct 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bellemare will take over centering duties for the injured Vincent Lecavalier (foot), who's expected to be out for at least two weeks, reports Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia.
Impact: The speedy Bellemare will see an increase in ice time from his previous fourth-line role. The 29-year-old did not post hair-blowing-back numbers in his previous stints in Sweden, and he's currently sporting a zero in the points column through the first three games.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | STATS
News: Lecavalier is out two weeks with a lower-body injury.
Impact: While the Flyers aren't specifying where Lecavalier is hurt, reports state that it's his left foot.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Coburn (lower body) is day-to-day, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Impact: Coburn was seen walking around on crutches Monday, but apparently his injury isn't serious to warrant a trip to IR. Considering he is still active, it's reasonable to expect him to return within a week, barring any setbacks.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morin will miss four-to-five weeks due to his fractured jaw.
Impact: As a result, he'll be on the shelf until mid-November. Morin will spend the season with Rimouski of the QMJHL in hopes of becoming a fixture in Philadelphia as early as next season.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Grossmann will not practice Monday due to a stomach virus.
Impact: The Flyers are back in action Tuesday night, which likely makes Grossmann questionable for that tilt, depending on how much he recovers over the next 24 hours.
Mon. Oct 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lecavalier will miss two weeks with the foot injury he suffered Saturday.
Impact: A corresponding move to replace Lecavalier on the roster has not been announced just yet, but a short stint on IR seems likely.
Oct 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morin suffered a broken jaw Sunday and will undergo surgery Monday.
Impact: Morin, currently with Rimouski Oceanic of the QMJHL, has not yet been given a return timetable, but the team is expected to release more information following Monday's procedure. Morin has three assists and four penalty minutes in five games this season.
Sun. Oct 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Simmonds excelled yet again Saturday.
Impact: Simmonds has five points in a two-game stretch after a two-goal effort.
Sun. Oct 12, 2014 | STATS
News: Emery stopped 35 shots Saturday.
Impact: Emery is a solid veteran but probably not good enough to be your fantasy starter.
Oct 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lecavalier walked out of the arena Saturday wearing a walking boot on his left foot, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Lecavalier took a shot off the foot from his teammate Mark Streit, but finished the game and even took part in the shootout. It's unclear whether he will be available Tuesday or not, but the team will likely need to recall someone if he can't go.
Oct 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Raffl came away with his first goal of the season in Saturday's loss to the Habs.
Impact: Elevated to the top line Saturday, Raffl took advantage of the opportunity, scoring one of two Philadelphia goals in an 18-second span in the first period. Raffl may not permanently stick next to Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek, but he might have earned himself at least another one-game trial on the line following Saturday's performance.
Sat. Oct 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Emery was on cruise control in Saturday's game until Montreal turned up the heat in the third period, allowing three goals in 7:35 to surrender the lead. He made 35 saves overall, but lost the game 4-3 in the shootout.
Impact: He looked good until the table tilted in the third, but things came apart quickly. Steve Mason remains the starter, but neither man has really impressed in a 0-2-1 overall start to the season.
Sat. Oct 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Simmonds scored twice, including once on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Canadiens.
Impact: He ended last season on a hot streak and is clearly just continuing the strong play this year. He scored twice within 57 seconds on Thursday night and had a hat trick in Game 6 of the Flyers' first-round playoff series. The two goals Saturday came about 17 minutes apart, but the first one came 18 seconds after a teammate had scored. Use him well.

News: Coburn (lower body) will be evaluated by a specialist Monday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: The Flyers are optimistic they'll receive a positive report on Coburn, who was spotted with crutches prior to Thursday's game. If Monday's examination confirms the team's belief about the injury being not especially serious, there's a chance Coburn could be back in the lineup as early as next Saturday against the Stars.

News: Emery will be in the crease Saturday against the Canadiens, Dave Randorf of Rogers Media reports.
Impact: After Steve Mason got the nod for the Flyers' first two tilts, Emery will draw his first start of the season. He'll face a stiff test matching up against the Habs' Carey Price, perhaps making him a less-than-ideal choice for those in daily leagues considering him as a streaming option. Emery was mostly mediocre in his first season in Philadelphia, posting a 9-12-2 record, 2.96 GAA and .903 save percentage over 28 games.

News: Pronger has joined the National Hockey League's department of player safety.
Impact: NHL senior vice president for player safety Stephane Quintal made the announcement Friday. Pronger hasn't technically retired. The former NHL MVP is still being paid by the Philadelphia Flyers through 2017, even though he hasn't played in the league since 2011 due to concussions and an eye injury. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said this week that he would have no problem with Pronger working for the league while the former defenseman is still on the Flyers' payroll.

News: General manager Ron Hextall indicated Friday that he was more optimistic about Coburn's (lower body) condition following the defenseman initial diagnosis, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Impact: Hextall said that the Flyers feared that Coburn would be lost for multiple weeks after suffering the injury in Wednesday's season opener against the Bruins, but the club is now hopeful Coburn may be back on the ice within the next several days. While Coburn is still probably looking at a multi-game absence, the Flyers will likely just address his absence internally, rather than having to make a trade to fill a long-term void.
