Methot (lower body) is "high unlikely" to suit up for Thursday's game against the visiting Flyers, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 reports.

Methot has just three assists for his only points in 23 games this season, so fantasy owners aren't likely to flinch at this latest development. Fredrik Claesson is on hand in the likely event that Methot misses the next contest.
