  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Vintage performance Sunday

    Yandle dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

    Yandle's best playmaking days are well behind him, but the 35-year-old defenseman turned back the clock in this one, assisting on a pair of goals by Noah Cates. Even after this performance, Yandle's 19 points plus whatever more gets in the last week of the season will be the fewest he's scored in a campaign since racking up only 12 as a rookie with the Coyotes back in 2007-08.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Healthy scratch ends Ironman streak

    Yandle was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Leafs. It ended his NHL-record consecutive games played streak at 989 games.

    He last missed a regular-season game on March 22, 2009 when he was a member of the Coyotes. Yandle has been a bad option on the ice and in fantasy this season, but saw plenty of game time to this point because the team has been so bad. Phil Kessel is in hot pursuit for the Ironman streak -- he has 968 consecutive games played.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Stuck in point drought

    Yandle has been held off the scoresheet in the past 11 games.

    It's been a tough season for Yandle, as he's been held pointless in the past 11 contests and has just one point in his last 18 outings. Through 65 matchups this year, he has one goal, 14 assists, and a minus-37 rating.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Ice time diminishing

    Yandle was scoreless with a minus-1 rating in 11:58 of ice time during Tuesday's loss to the Islanders.

    It was a historic night for Yandle, as he set the NHL ironman record after playing in his 965th consecutive game. However, games played on their own won't help much in the fantasy realm. Yandle is in a seven-game point drought, and hasn't reached 15 minutes of ice time in his past nine outings. His role with the Flyers is shrinking, as is his fantasy value. He has 13 points and a minus-23 rating through 43 games.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Collects couple of points

    Yandle tallied a pair of assists during Thursday's loss to the Bruins.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Hands out assist

    Yandle posted an assist in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sharks.

    Yandle earned the secondary helper on Joel Farabee's game-tying goal in the third period. The assist ended a four-game point drought for Yandle. The 35-year-old blueliner has picked up 11 helpers, 57 shots on net and a minus-15 rating in 31 appearances this year. While he can be relied on as an everyday presence in the lineup, Yandle's scoring pace continues to diminish as he sees more limited ice time.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Gathers two power-play helpers

    Yandle recorded two power-play assists, two shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    Yandle has started to turn things around with four assists in his last four games after going 18 contests without a point. The 35-year-old is little more than a power-play specialist at this point in his career, and the Flyers have converted on just 16 percent of their man-advantage chances. Yandle is at nine helpers (six on the power play), 50 shots and a minus-15 rating through 25 outings.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Stuck in lengthy point drought

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Off to productive start

    Yandle dished two assists in Wednesday's 6-3 win over Boston.

    Yandle figured in on goals by Scott Laughton and Sean Couturier, giving the veteran defenseman five helpers in his first three games as a Flyer. The 35-year-old Yandle has remained productive offensively since registering a career-high 62 points with Florida in 2018-19, although his per-game scoring dipped significantly during a 27-point campaign a year ago.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Adds pair of assists

    Yandle notched two assists (one on the power play), two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    The 35-year-old defenseman hasn't missed a game since the 2008-09 season, and his Flyers debut was a solid first impression. Yandle signed a one-year contract after he was bought out by the Panthers. Yandle isn't all that steady in his own zone, but there aren't many better options waiting in the press box for a third-pairing job. Despite the limited even-strength role, Yandle will get a gig on the top power-play unit, which could keep his scoring numbers in the fantasy-relevant range.

  • Flyers' Keith Yandle: Secures one-year pact

    Yandle agreed to terms on a one-year, $900,000 deal with Philadelphia on Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Yandle will take his ironman streak to the City of Brotherly Love where he will join a blue line filled with new faces including Ryan Ellis and Rasmus Ristolainen. The 34-year-old Yandle is unlikely to return to being a 50-60 point producer and may be hard-pressed to secure minutes with the man advantage. As such, the Boston native should probably be considered a mid-range fantasy option.

  • Keith Yandle: Bought by Panthers

    Yandle was officially bought out by Florida on Thursday.

    Yandle ended the year bogged down in a 42-game goal drought during which he still managed to generated 16 assists. The veteran blueliner will be looking to extend his ironman streak but will have to do so with his fourth NHL club having previously played for the Coyotes, Rangers and Panthers.

  • Panthers' Keith Yandle: Scratched again

    Yandle will be a healthy scratch for Saturday's Game 4 versus Tampa Bay, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Yandle picked up two assists in Game 1 against the Lightning, but he's been a defensive liability all season, so he may be watching from the press box more often than not going forward. The 34-year-old blueliner has picked up 27 points while posting a minus-8 rating through 56 contests this campaign.

  • Panthers' Keith Yandle: Healthy scratch in Game 3

    Yandle is a healthy scratch Thursday for Game 3 against Tampa Bay, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Yandle produced a pair of assists in Game 1 but was held scoreless in just 13:43 of ice time in Game 2. The Panthers rolled with seven defensemen in Game 2 but dressed six Thursday to accommodate the return of Sam Bennett from suspension. It'll be interesting to see if Yandle returns Saturday for Game 4.

  • Panthers' Keith Yandle: Collects two assists

    Yandle notched two assists in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Lightning in Game 1.

    Yandle only saw 16:10 of ice time, but he was able to help out on goals by Aleksander Barkov (power play) and Carter Verhaeghe (even strength) in the first period. The 34-year-old Yandle should be a steady veteran presence on the third pairing. He racked up 27 points (18 on the power play) in 56 regular-season outings.

  • Panthers' Keith Yandle: Two key assists in OT thriller

    Yandle produced two assists -- including a power-play helper -- in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars.

  • Panthers' Keith Yandle: Notches power-play helper

    Yandle recorded a power-play assist and six shots on goal in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Predators.

  • Panthers' Keith Yandle: Nabs assist Tuesday

    Yandle produced an assist and five shots on goal in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

    Yandle set up Radko Gudas' tally in the second period to give the Panthers a 2-1 lead. The 34-year-old Yandle snapped a five-game point drought with the assist. The Massachusetts native is up to 22 points, 82 shots on net and a minus-6 rating through 43 appearances. He's seen a reduced role on the second pairing, but 15 of his 22 points have come with the man advantage. That's enough to keep him on the fantasy radar.
