  • Flyers' Matt Read: Placed on waivers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Read was placed on waivers Monday, Elliotte Friedman of CBC reports. Read has only played in four games this season, and he's averaged a career-low 10:54 of ice time. He's likely heading back to AHL Lehigh Valley.

  • Flyers' Matt Read: Will take ice for season debut
    By RotoWire Staff

    Read will make his season debut Saturday, when the Flyers play host to the Oilers, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. Recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Read is needed with the parent club since Jordan Weal (upper body) and Taylor Leier (undisclosed) will each be injured scratches for the Saturday matinee. Read added 10 goals and nine helpers over 63 games with Philly last season.

  • Flyers' Matt Read: Returns to Flyers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Read was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday. Read had played the past six seasons in Philly, which is why it was something of a surprise that the two-time 20-goal scorer began 2017-18 in the minors. After five minor-league games, in which he scored a single goal, Read finds himself back with the Flyers, though at this point it's unclear whether or not he'll suit up for Thursday's contest with Nashville. Regardless, Read doesn't figure to make much of a fantasy impact even when he's in the lineup.

  • Flyers' Matt Read: Now toiling on waiver wire
    By RotoWire Staff

    Read was waived by the Flyers on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports. The writing was on the wall that Read would be deemed expendable. Philly seems keen on offering larger roles to Taylor Leier and Scott Laughton after watching the former dip in offensive production for the third straight year -- he was all the way down to 19 points in 63 games in 2016-17, and a season-ending upper-body injury compounded his troubles. There's little reason to get too caught up with Read from a fantasy perspective.

  • Flyers' Matt Read: Roster spot in jeopardy
    By RotoWire Staff

    Read, who's coming off a season-ending upper-body injury, is at risk of losing his roster spot with the Flyers, the Courier-Post reports. Read's cap hit of $3.625 million is too large a figure for a depreciating asset coming off a career-worst 19-point season -- his third straight year of declining offensive production. The Flyers are expected to carve out a more substantial role for 23-year-old Scott Laughton, which only adds pressure on Read to reverse the tide in 2017-18. For what it's worth, the Ontario native sounds up for the challenge. "You've got to show up and earn your ice time," he said. "That's kind of why I'm here early, is to be in the best shape I can be and on the ice as much as I can, and when it comes to Day 1, I'll be the best I can be and hopefully given the best opportunity to succeed."
