Filppula collected a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating through 20:58 of ice time during Monday's 5-2 win over Calgary.
This was Filppula's first goal in 11 games, and he recorded just two assists and 10 shots during that scoring drought. The veteran center has seven tallies and six helpers through 27 contests for the season, which is underwhelming production considering he's averaging 17:04 of ice time (2:21 with the man advantage) per game. It's probably best to leave Filppula to the waiver wire in most fantasy settings.
Filppula has recorded just two goals, two assists and 11 shots through his past 11 games.
The veteran averaged a respectable 17:09 of ice time (2:17 on the man advantage) during that 11-game stretch, so minutes and role aren't the culprits. Additionally, his 0.86 points per 60 minutes rank eighth lowest among all forwards with at least 200 minutes at five-on-five this season. It's probably best to keep expectations in check for Filppula until he proves he can tilt the offensive scales again at even strength.
Filppula recorded a goal and added a power-play assist during Tuesday's 5-1 win over Florida.
The veteran Finn has now scored four goals and added a helper through the past three games. He's rolling with the No. 1 power-play unit, and Filppula has also been centering the second line of late. Considering his offensively tilted role, he's a potential add with the Flyers scoring in bunches.
Filppula scored two power-play goals during Tuesday's 6-5 loss to Nashville.
These were the first two points of the season for the 33-year-old veteran, but it's important to note that Filppula's role on the No. 1 power-play unit should buoy his fantasy value as long as he's skating with the top group. Filppula should probably be left to deep settings, but he's definitely worth keeping tabs on given his offensive role.
Filppula scored a pair of goals in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
The two tallies weren't quite enough, as the Flyers were eliminated from playoff contention with a 4-3 loss. The 33-year-old is finishing the season strong with four goals in his last five games and is playing on the second line. The Flyers might not be competing for the Stanley Cup this year, but with the way Filppula is scoring, he could be worth inserting into your lineup for these final regular season games.
