Manning (shoulder) will return to Philadelphia's lineup for Thursday's game against Minnesota, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Manning's return to action will bolster the Flyers' blue-line depth, but it won't impact many fantasy owners' lineups, as the 26-year-old's lack of offensive production -- 10 points in 57 games this campaign -- makes him an impractical option in most formats. He's expected to skate alongside Radko Gudas on the second pairing.
Manning (shoulder) won't play Tuesday versus the Jets, though coach Dave Hakstol said "he's close," Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Flyers have 10 games remaining on the regular-season schedule, so there's not a whole lot of time for him to return and find his groove offensively. Of course, that's not his role anyway. Manning is a pesky defender who's delivered 105 hits and 58 PIM in 57 games. His next chance to suit up will be Thursday for a road draw in Minnesota.
Manning (shoulder) will miss Wednesday's matchup with the Penguins and remains day-to-day, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports. Manning's absence from the lineup is unlikely to be noticed by many fantasy owners, as he has just one helper in his last 40 outings and last recorded a goal Nov. 17. With the 26-year-old sidelined, Nick Schultz figures to continue filling in on the Flyers' blue line.
Manning is day-to-day with an upper-body injury, and won't play Monday against Columbus, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly reports. The blueliner won't be missed in most leagues because of his limited offensive stats, only scoring 10 points in 57 games, but his 105 hits and 58 PIM give him a boost in production in certain leagues. He'll get a chance to return Wednesday against Pittsburgh.
Manning has served his two-game suspension and is eligible to return to Philadelphia's lineup for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Manning's inclusion in the Flyers' lineup for Saturday evening's contest hasn't been made official, but if he does return to action against the Capitals, he could return to his usual role skating with Radko Gudas on Philadelphia's second pairing. The 26-year-old blueliner is a solid penalty killer for Philly, but his meager offensive production -- 10 points in 53 games this campaign -- keeps him from being a desirable option in the majority of fantasy formats.
