Top Matthew Phillips News

  • Penguins' Matthew Phillips: Picked up off waivers

    Phillips was claimed off waivers by the Penguins from the Capitals on Friday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Phillips' placement on the waiver wire may have been poorly timed after Pittsburgh found out Jake Guentzel (upper body) was going to be out of action for four weeks. With the inexperienced Valtteri Puustinen and Johnny Gruden currently filling out bottom-six roles for the Pens, the 25-year-old Phillips could be immediately pressed into service against the Canadiens on Saturday.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: On waivers

    Phillips was put on waivers Thursday, per Chris Johnston of The Athletic.

    Phillips has a goal and five points in 27 contests this season, but he's appeared in just one game for Washington since Jan. 3. If he clears waivers, Phillips will likely be reassigned to AHL Hershey.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Draws into lineup

    Phillips will play on the fourth line Thursday against the Panthers, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Phillips has been serving as a healthy scratch for the last 12 games, having last played Jan. 3 against New Jersey. The 25-year-old forward has one goal and five points in 26 games with the Capitals this season.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Dishes helper Thursday

    Phillips registered an assist while logging 11:40 of ice time during Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Stars.

    Phillips has managed just two assists in his last 14 games and has served as healthy scratch in recent weeks. With T.J. Oshie (upper body) nearing a return and Max Pacioretty (achilles) possibly returning before the end of the month, Phillips will need to jump-start his offensive game in order to continue garnering regular ice time.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Promoted to top line

    Phillips skated on the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Dylan Strome during Friday's practice, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Phillips had an impressive training camp and is among the only Capitals players to be producing offensively (one goal, one assist) in the first three games. Head coach Spencer Carbery appears to be putting his lines in a blender following a rough start with Phillips as the beneficiary. Fantasy managers in deeper leagues and daily formats may want to roll the dice on the 25-year-old Phillips when setting their lineups ahead of Saturday's action.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Haunts former team

    Phillips scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flames.

    Phillips' first game against his former team couldn't have gone much better, as he earned his first two NHL points in the contest. He got the Capitals on the board with a tally at 6:50 of the second period before seting up Connor McMichael just over three minutes later for the tying goal. Phillips appeared in just three NHL games with the Flames after being selected in the sixth round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The Capitals have given him a third-line role to begin this season, though fantasy managers may want to see if he can find consistency before considering him as a depth forward.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Signs with Washington

    Phillips signed a one-year contract with Washington on Sunday.

    Phillips racked up 36 goals and 76 points in 66 games with AHL Calgary last season. He also appeared in two games with the Flames in 2022-23, averaging just 9:02 of ice time. Phillips is likely to spend most of next season in the minors despite receiving a one-way contract.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Sent down

    Phillips was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Friday, according to the AHL transaction page.

    Phillips has skated in two games with the Flames this season. He was a healthy scratch for six straight games prior to the holiday break, so there's a chance he could remain in the AHL to get some playing time.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Promoted from minors

    Phillips was recalled from AHL Calgary on Friday, CapFriendly reports.

    Phillips has averaged 9:02 of ice time with no points through two NHL appearances this season. He was a healthy scratch for Friday's game against the Blues and could be sent back to the minors in the coming days.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Drops to AHL

    Phillips was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Phillips' move to the minors may be a short one -- after also sending down Radim Zohorna, the Flames have no healthy extra skaters on the roster. They play Friday versus the Blues, so it's possible Phillips could be back on the NHL roster within a day.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Ascends to top level

    Phillips was recalled by the Flames on Thursday.

    Phillips has been excellent in the minors this season, leading the AHL in scoring with 15 goals and 30 points through 20 games. He'll likely stick with the Flames for the team's upcoming three-game road trip.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Among Calgary cuts

    Phillips was re-assigned to the AHL on Sunday, per Aaron Vickers of NHL.com.

    Phillips posted 31 goals and 37 assists in 65 games to lead AHL Stockton last season. If unclaimed, the speedy winger will begin the 2022-23 season in the AHL, though he should see opportunities with the Flames at some point during the season.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Inks new contract

    Phillips signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Saturday.

    Phillips led AHL Stockton last season with 31 goals and added 37 assists in 65 games. He was called up as one of the Flames' Black Aces during the playoffs. The undersized winger's impressive scoring pace should earn him a long look in training camp, but the two-way nature of his deal suggests he'll spend at least part of the campaign in the bus league.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Waived Sunday

    Phillips was placed on waivers by the Flames on Sunday.

    Phillips made his NHL debut in the regular-season finale for the Flames last year. The 23-year-old will begin the season with AHL Stockton if he goes unclaimed on waivers. A strong start in the minors could vault him to the top of the list for call-up candidates if the Flames need forward reinforcements.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Snags two-way contract

    Phillips penned a one-year, two-way deal with Calgary on Friday.

    Phillips made his NHL debut this past season, though it was his only taste of NHL action. The 23-year-old sixth-round pick should be capable of pushing for more opportunities this year but ultimately figures to spend the bulk of the campaign in the minors with AHL Stockton.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Making NHL debut

    Phillips will be promoted to Calgary's active roster and make his NHL debut Wednesday versus Vancouver, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Phillips has played pretty well in the minors this season, picking up 21 points through 30 contests. The 2016 sixth-round pick will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Wednesday's contest.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Promoted to taxi squad

    Phillips was promoted to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Phillips was second on AHL Stockton's scoring list this season with 21 points in 30 contests. The 23-year-old forward could get a look in Wednesday's season finale versus the Canucks if he's lifted to the active roster.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Cut from camp

    Phillips (undisclosed) won't be included on Calgary's 31-man playoff roster, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Phillips impressed in the AHL this season, notching 15 goals and 33 points in 38 games, but he was never expected to make the Flames' playoff roster. The 22-year-old forward missed practice with an undisclosed issue Sunday, but he'll have plenty of time to heal up ahead of next year's training camp.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Sits out Sunday

    Phillips (undisclosed) was unable to participate in Sunday's practice, Scott Cruickshank of The Athletic reports.

    The reason behind Phillips' absence remains unclear, as he's been a full participant during training camp until this point. It could be just a maintenance day off for the 22-year-old, but it's likely his status won't be updated until he returns to practice.
