Top Alex Lyon News

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Heads to AHL

    Lyon was assigned to AHL Chicago on Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Lyon seems to have been surpassed by Jack LaFontaine on the Hurricanes' goaltending depth chart. This makes it unlikely Lyon sees much more NHL time this season.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Downed by Panthers in OT

    Lyon stopped 32 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Panthers.

    Making his second NHL start of the season, Lyon fell behind 3-1 early in the second period but stood tall down the stretch to give the 'Canes a chance to come back and earn a point. There's been no indication yet how serious Antti Raanta's upper-body injury is, but even if he sticks around for a while, Lyon likely won't see much action behind Frederik Andersen.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Making spot start

    Lyon will guard the home goal Saturday versus the Panthers, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Lyon was called up from the taxi squad earlier Saturday, and he'll immediately step into the crease against the high-scoring Panthers. The 29-year-old won his only previous appearance this season, stopping 27 of 29 shots in a win over the Blues on Nov. 13.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Joins big club

    Lyon was recalled from the taxi squad for Saturday's tilt with Florida, Walt Ruff of the Canes' official site reports.

    Lyon's promotion could indicate that either Frederik Andersen or Antti Raanta won't be available for Saturday's game. The 29-year-old stopped 27-of-29 shots in his lone NHL appearance this season.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Rejoins AHL affiliate

    Lyon was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Monday, per Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer.

    Lyon will reprise his role tending the AHL goal, where he has posted a 9-1-1 record with a 1.79 GAA and a .929 save percentage this year.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Called up to taxi squad

    Lyon was added to the Hurricanes' taxi squad Tuesday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.

    Lyon will serve as an emergency depth option in the even Frederik Andersen (COVID-19 protocols) is still unavailable versus the Canadiens on Thursday. Even with his promotion to the taxi squad, Lyon shouldn't be expected to log any minutes between the pipes for Carolina, making him a non-factor in fantasy contests.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Sent to AHL

    The Hurricanes reassigned Lyon to AHL Chicago on Sunday.

    The 28-year-old impressed in his first start of the season Saturday, stopping 27 of 29 shots and earning the win against St. Louis. Lyon loses his roster spot now that Antti Raanta (concussion) is apparently ready to play again.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: First win as a Cane

    Lyon made 27 saves Saturday in a 3-2 win over the Blues. It was his Carolina debut.

    Lyon was especially sharp in the second, when eight of 13 shots he faced came on the PP. Perhaps his best stop came when he came hard across the crease while shorthanded to deny James Neal. Lyon, who is 28, has played just 23 NHL games and started just 16. But this was one of his best.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Between pipes Saturday

    Lyon will be the starting goalie for Saturday's game against the Blues, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    The 28-year-old will make his first start of 2021 after being called up last Sunday. Lyon played six games for the Flyers last season and posted a 3.33 GAA and .893 save percentage.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Called up to big club

    Lyon will be called up from AHL Chicago, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Lyon will presumably back up Frederik Andersen on Tuesday in Tampa with Antti Raanta dealing with an upper-body injury. Lyon has yet to make his Hurricanes debut after posting a 1-3-1 record, 3.33 GAA and .893 save percentage with the Flyers last season.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Hits waivers

    Lyon was waived by the Hurricanes on Friday, CapFriendly reports.

    Lyon will almost certainly be assigned to the Hurricanes' AHL affiliate if he passes through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old netminder went 1-3-1 while posting a 3.33 GAA and an .893 save percentage in six appearances with the Flyers last season.

  • Hurricanes' Alex Lyon: Secures two-year deal

    Lyon signed a one-year, two-way deal with Carolina on Friday, CapFriendly reports.

    Lyon has spent his entire five-year professional career in the Flyers' organization prior to signing with Carolina. The 28-year-old netminder has appeared in 22 NHL games over the last four seasons, registering a .893 save percentage and a 3.21 GAA. He won't have much of a role with the NHL squad behind Frederik Andersen and Antti Raanta barring any injuries.

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Strong effort in loss

    Lyon made 38 saves in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Capitals on Saturday.

    He played a strong game and came within 40 seconds of a shutout. And then the winner just trickled past him. Lyon has been strong in his last two performances -- he stopped 73 of 77 shots (.948 save percentage) against the Pens and Caps. Lyon has a shot to be the backup in 2021-22 unless the Flyers re-up Brian Elliott.

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Starting Saturday

    Lyon will patrol the crease during Saturday's road game versus the Capitals, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

    Lyon was sharp in his last start Monday against the Penguins, stopping 35 of 37 shots en route to a blowout 7-2 victory. The 28-year-old netminder will attempt to secure his second win of the season in a road matchup with a Washington team that's won four of its last six games.

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Picks up first win of 2020-21

    Lyon turned aside 35 of 37 shots Monday in a 7-2 win over the Penguins.

    Lyon was rock-solid outside a pair of power-play goals by Sidney Crosby and Jason Zucker in the third period, making 30 of his 35 stops at even strength. Lyon had been winless in his other four appearances of the year, bringing an 0-3-0 mark into Monday's game.

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Facing tough matchup Monday

    Lyon will start Monday's game against the Penguins.

    Lyon's still searching for his first victory of 2020-21, as he's 0-3 with a forgettable 4.20 GAA and .848 save percentage. Getting into the win column will be a tall order against the third-ranked Penguins offense (3.37 goals per game).

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Struggles again in NJ

    Lyon turned aside just 14 of 18 shots in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Devils.

    New Jersey's fifth goal was an empty-netter. Lyon suffered a third consecutive unimpressive loss, and he's allowed 13 goals in those three starts. He'll continue to work as the Flyers' backup behind Brian Elliott down the stretch with Carter Hart (knee) done for the season, but Lyon's not a recommended option behind Philadelphia's league-worst defense.

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Starting in New Jersey

    Lyon will defend the blue paint during Thursday's road game versus the Devils, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Lyon wasn't great in his last start Friday against the Rangers, surrendering four goals on 24 shots en route to a 4-1 defeat. The 28-year-old American will attempt to bounce back and secure his first win of the season in a road matchup with a struggling New Jersey team that's lost nine of its last 10 games.

  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Bounced by Blueshirts

    Lyon made 20 saves in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Making his second start of the season, Lyon kept the Flyers in the game for about 50 minutes before fading in the third period. The 28-year-old will back up Brian Elliott until Carter Hart (knee) gets healthy, but Lyon's career 3.33 GAA and .888 save percentage over 19 NHL appearances don't offer much optimism that he can provide fantasy value if he sees any more action.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • Flyers' Alex Lyon: Tabbed for Friday's start

    Lyon will protect the road goal Friday versus the Rangers, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

    Lyon served as the backup in Thursday's 3-2 win, while Brian Elliott started with Carter Hart (knee) unavailable. The 28-year-old Lyon has allowed six goals on 50 across two appearances this season, so he could be a risky choice in DFS.
