Laughton (upper body) will play Monday against the Hurricanes, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Laughton saw just 23 seconds of ice time in Saturday's game against Ottawa before leaving with an upper-body injury. However, it won't prevent him from playing Monday against the Senators, as he'll likely center the third line.
Laughton, who left Saturday's game with an upper-body injury, will have his status updated Sunday, according to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer. A hard hit along the boards knocked Laughton out of the game and makes him questionable entering Monday night's game against the Hurricanes.
Laughton left Saturday's game against Ottawa with an upper-body injury and will not return. It was a hit from the Senators' Alex Chiasson along the boards, just minutes into the game, that ended Laughton's night. If Laughton cannot go Monday against Carolina, it will mark his first absence of the season.
Laughton started the game with a goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals. With six points in 16 games, you have to wonder if he could be even more productive if his team could actually win games. The Flyers have lost eight of their last nine and have just five wins on the season. They've scored just 30 goal over that span, so Laughton's responsible for 10% of the team's production. If they can turn up the offensive heat, Laughton's worth a cheap look in deeper and daily formats.
Laughton netted his second goal of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Edmonton. Predicted to start the season in the AHL, Laughton has spurned doubters by collecting five points in 12 games. While that number doesn't scream enormous fantasy value, he's also playing for a struggling Flyers' team that has the second-fewest goals in the league (23). If the Flyers catch some offensive steam, Laughton could be worth a look in deeper and daily formats.
