    Flyers' Matt Read: Scores goal in win

    Read bagged his eighth goal of the season, an empty-netter, in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Montreal. With just two points in his last eight games, the empty-netter is a welcome score for owners. Read has no doubt struggled this season, and only managed 12 minutes of ice time on Tuesday. His fourth-line status diminishes what little fantasy value he does have.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Rattles off three points Saturday

    Read had a big afternoon Saturday, tallying a goal and dishing out two helpers in a 4-0 win over the visiting Islanders. Read was great in the matinee affair, as he also skated to a plus-3 and fired five shots on goal -- giving him 11 in the last two games after recording just one SOG in the previous three before that. The Bemidji State product continues to serve as a solid energy guy and occasional source of depth scoring (15 points in 39 games) in the Flyers' bottom six, but doesn't provide much by way of fantasy value at this point given his current fourth-line assignment.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Two points in last three games

    Read assisted on Sean Couturier's goal in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win against Carolina. Read has fell short of expectations last season, and is on pace to do so again. With the Flyers heating up -- they're finally above .500 -- Read is worth monitoring in certain formats. If he can string together a points streak, he could find his way onto some fantasy rosters.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Scores in win

    Read potted a goal and finished plus-2 in Thursday's 4-2 over St. Louis. It's been a rough season thus far for the 29-year-old winger. He's on pace for just 22 points, even fewer than last season and well short of the career-high 47 points he posted in 2011. He's seeing plenty of ice time, he's simply not capitalizing on it. If you're starting Read regularly with the hope he'll bounce back, you've likely got more productive options on your bench.

    Flyers' Matt Read: Off to a slow start

    Reed has tallied two goals and one assist in 11 games during the 2015-16 campaign. Read is coming off a year where he failed to meet offensive expectations and is looking for a bounce back season in 2015-16. Thus far, Read has been far from impressive as he hasn't found the back of the net in the past six contests while playing on the talented second line with Wayne Simmonds and Scott Laughton. Read is still averaging 15 minutes of ice time a game and has a chance to see additional playing time on the second-unit power play if Michael Raffl continues to be unproductive.

  • Flyers' Read Grabs Goal In Finale

    News: Matt Read tallied the Flyers' lone goal in Saturday's season finale against the Senators.
    Analysis: Matt Read closed 2014-15 with eight goals and 30 points over 80 games. While he wasn't counted on to be much more than a complementary scorer heading into the season, Read failed to live up to even those modest expectations, as the goal total was less than half of what he posted a year earlier (22). Much of the blame for that decline probably lies in his 5.6 shooting percentage this season, which was nearly seven points less than his career mark.
