  • Simmonds has just three goals and four assists at even strength through 18 games this season. Power-play production has always been critical to Simmonds' fantasy success, as he's recorded double-digit goals and over 20 points with the man advantage in each of the past four seasons. However, his even-strength numbers have plummeted this year. Simmonds' 1.09 points per 60 minutes rank 15th lowest among the 164 forwards with at least 200 minutes at five-on-five this season. There is likely statistical correction ahead, and his power-play role buoys his value to a degree. But without a marked improvement at even strength, it will be difficult for Simmonds to repeat his past offensive numbers.

  • Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Playing Thursday

    Simmonds (lower body) is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Senators. Simmonds will occupy his usual role Thursday, skating on the Flyers' second line and first power-play unit against Ottawa. The 6-foot-2 power forward has already racked up six goals and three assists in nine games this season.

  • Simmonds (lower body) was on the ice for morning skate Thursday, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports. The Flyers take to the ice for an evening showdown against the Senators in Ottawa, and his participation in the a.m. skate suggests he should be ready for that game. However, fantasy owners will want to check back closer to pregame warmups to learn of Simmonds' official status for the next contest. He's been his typical productive self with six goals and three assists through nine games this season.

  • Simmonds was in the process of being evaluated for a lower-body injury Wednesday, John Boruk of NBCSPhilly reports. A proven playmaker in the top six, Simmonds was on the ice for 18:14 of ice time in Tuesday's 6-2 home loss to the Ducks, which was actually slightly above his average amount of playing time on the young season. The Flyers next play Thursday in Ottawa, so expect the team to make a priority of reevaluating one of its top producers.

  • Flyers' Wayne Simmonds: Torrid start continues
    By RotoWire Staff

    Simmonds scored the game-winning goal with 2:15 remaining Saturday to lift the Flyers to a 2-1 win over the Oilers. The assist came on the power play. Simmonds now has six goals and nine points in eight games this season; four of those points have come with the man advantage. Simmonds will be hard pressed to continue this torrid pace, but the 29-year-old might have a chance to set a career mark in goals by season's end.
