The Flyers reassigned Farabee to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday.
The Flyers acquired Derek Grant and Nate Thompson via trade Monday, so Farabee is the odd man out. This move will make Farabee, who will turn 20 years old Tuesday, eligible for the AHL playoffs, and he could be back up with the big club soon. He's proven he can play at the top level, producing 20 points through 49 games this year.
Farabee picked up two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.
He helped set up Kevin Hayes in the first period and Travis Konecny in the third. Farabee remains somewhat inconsistent -- not surprising for a teenager in the NHL -- but he's been showing off his skills lately, scoring four goals and eight points in his last 10 games despite missing three contests in the middle of that stretch due to a flu bug.
Farabee (illness) is healthy ahead of Tuesday's road contest against the Islanders, NHL.com reports.
Farabee missed the last three contests with his illness but is healthy Tuesday and should play. The rookie forward has 18 points in 43 NHL games this season.
Farabee (illness) won't play Monday versus the Panthers but should be cleared before Tuesday's game versus the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Farabee will miss his third straight game, but it appears he'll be ready for Tuesday's divisional clash. The 19-year-old was just heating up before falling ill, as he stacked up four goals and two assists over his last six contests.
