Neuvirth went 1-4-1 with a 4.27 GAA and .859 save percentage during seven appearances, including six starts, during the 2018-19 season. The veteran netminder dealt with multiple injuries and as a result, he barely played this past season. Neuvirth didn't make his season debut until Oct. 27 because of offseason hip surgery, but then after that loss, he didn't play again for six weeks due to an undisclosed ailment. Over the next month, he appeared in six games and then ended up on IR by the middle of January. Neuvirth will be a free agent this summer and will probably be in search of a new home.
Neuvirth (lower body) is progressing in his rehab and has a follow-up appointment scheduled with the doctor this Friday. Neuvirth has been sidelined since Jan. 3 with the lower-body issue, leaving the primary duties to Carter Hart (ankle) between the pipes. The Flyers have a backlog of goalies to choose from when Neuvirth and Hart return, which could put Neuvirth in a vulnerable spot in terms of his roster spot.
Although Neuvirth (lower body) remains without a timetable for his return, the Flyers hope he'll be able to resume skating late next week. Neuvirth has been dealing with various injuries for most of the 2018-19 campaign, so the Flyers are undoubtedly going to proceed with extreme caution this time around to ensure he's fully healthy before returning to game action. The 30-year-old netminder should still be considered out indefinitely at this point, but a more clear-cut timetable for his recovery should be established once he's able to return to practice with his teammates.
Neuvirth (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, with the move retroactive to Jan. 3, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports. Since the Flyers backdated Neuvirth's IR transaction, he can be removed from that list at any time. Still, rookie netminder Carter Hart will post up between the pipes against the Devils on Saturday afternoon with Mike McKenna available in a backup role.
Neuvirth (lower body) will be out of action versus St. Louis on Monday, per Adam Kimelman of NHL.com. Neuvirth once again is dealing with an injury, which figures to see Carter Hart and Mike McKenna split the upcoming back-to-back against the Blues and Capitals on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. When Neuvirth might be ready to return remains to be seen, but even once healthy, the veteran could struggle to earn minutes given his poor performances this season (a 1-4-1 record and 4.26 GAA in seven outings).
