Konecny has three goals and eight points with a plus-4 rating in 19 games this season. It's been a subpar start to 2018-19 for the 21-year-old. He had five points in his first eight games, giving him respectable numbers, but then he went on a five-game pointless streak and hasn't really recovered. Konecny has just one goal and three points in the last 11 contests. The good news is during that stretch, he's posted a plus-6 rating to move his plus/minus firmly into the positive. Other than that, Konecny has been a fantasy disappointment.
Konecny posted an assist with two hits and a block in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks on Saturday. The assist gave Konecny his first point since Oct. 20, breaking a six-game pointless streak. Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come, but still, one point in the last seven games isn't very reassuring. Konecny's only real value exists in dynasty leagues. He has two goals and six points with 13 hits and five blocks in 14 games.
Konecny has two goals and five points in nine games this season. The young forward had a modest three-game point streak until he didn't post a point against the Avalanche on Monday. His recent play is definitely reassuring, but the Flyers have deployed Konecny for less than 14 minutes in four of the last six games. He's playing less than he did a season ago, which definitely puts a cap on his production.
Konecny scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Blue Jackets. Thursday's performance gives Konecny four points in seven games. Playing on the power play certainly opens up more opportunities for the young forward -- Konecny logged 15:55 of ice time, 1:16 of which came on the PP. With points in two straight games, Konecny will look to prolong his streak Saturday against the Devils.
Konecny (foot) is expected to play Saturday afternoon against the Golden Knights, John Boruk of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. All signs point to Konecny drawing into the matinee after he was spotted shooting hoops ahead of pre-game warmups. We'll let you know if anything changes on this front, but it looks like the two-way pivot is none the worse for wear after taking a puck to his skate in Friday's practice.
