  • Van Riemsdyk officially re-joined the Flyers upon receiving a five-year, $35 million contract Sunday, NBC Sports Philadelphia reports, adding that JVR could end up on the third line this coming season. Philadelphia's depth chart could easily be reconfigured by the time the 2018-19 season commences, but as it stands now, a conceivable arrangement is for JVR to be a third-line flanker with Oskar Lindblom at center and Wayne Simmonds on the opposite side. Promoting a prospect from AHL Lehigh Valley to start the new season is also said to be under consideration. Van Riemsdyk's career started in Philly, and he produced 47 goals and 52 assists for the club between 2009-12. While the third line is typically reserved for checking specialists and energetic role players, it appears that the Flyers will have the luxury of padding each of the four lines with at least one experienced forward.

  • James van Riemsdyk: Second-best free agent on market
    By RotoWire Staff

    Van Riemsdyk is the clear-cut number two free agent available, but his destination will be determined by where John Tavares signs, reports TSN.ca. More than 12 teams have spoken to JVR since the free agent courting period began. Eight of those are still in the running. But those include several of the teams in the Tavares sweepstakes. Van Riemsdyk scored 36 goals and 54 points in 2017-18 and has averaged 31 goals over his last four full seasons. JVR will get a windfall of cash, but he's looking for a prime role, a chance to win, plus elite facilities and training/recovery methods.

  • Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal during a 4-2 victory over Boston in Game 3 on Monday. The goal was Van Riemsdyk's first of the postseason and ignited the crowd at Air Canada Centre, helping Toronto pull within 2-1 in the opening round series. Van Riemsdyk has been making his presence felt physically thus far, compiling nine hits in his last two games, but has seen his even-strength opportunities limited, as he's playing mainly on the third line with Tyler Bozak and Connor Brown. The 28-year-old has been a mainstay on the first power-play unit, however, averaging an immense 4:03 of playing time.
