Laughton set up two goals in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Hurricanes. Laughton has been remarkably hot of late -- he has nine points (three goals, six assists) in his last six games and points in five of those six. He's not the most skilled, but he might be the hardest working Flyer. And that means Laughton is in the right place at the right time when the puck arrives. He's a great waiver play right now to give your team a boost.
Laughton scored a goal on two shots and added four PIM with three hits Wednesday in a 5-2 win over Washington. Laughton used a fortuitous bounce to score his 13th goal of the season, establishing a new career high in that category. He attempted a centering pass from the bottom of the faceoff circle that ricocheted into the net off the skate of a Washington defender, rounding out the scoring in a Philadelphia road win. Laughton has 25 points in 46 games and his shooting percentage of 17.6 is nearly double his previous career high (9.3 in 2017-18).
Laughton notched two assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Rangers. That's now three straight multi-point performances for the 25-year-old, and four in the last eight games. Laughton hasn't been much of an offensive threat in his career, but as long as he's seeing consistent top-six minutes at even strength -- his TOI has been over 15:00 in five straight contests -- he could maintain fantasy value.
Laughton scored two goals in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Jets. The first 10 minutes of the game belonged to Laughton, as he beat Connor Hellebuyck twice to give the Flyers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The 25-year-old center has now tied his previous career high with 12 goals on the year, needing only 42 games to reach the mark it took him a full 82 games to achieve last season.
Laughton scored a goal on two shots and added two PIM in Monday's 3-0 win over the Red Wings. Laughton has scored in three straight games. The 25-year-old has posted nine goals, 14 points, 46 shots and 77 hits through 33 games this year. He operates in a bottom-six role, but the recent scoring binge could make him useful as a depth option in DFS for Thursday's game against the Devils.
