Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Sets up two late goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk tallied a pair of assists and one shot on goal in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Devils.

Van Riemsdyk fed Claude Giroux for a redirection at the side of the net to tie the game at 3-3 with 1:04 left in regulation. Just 22 seconds earlier, van Riemsdyk had assisted on Giroux's goal that brought the Flyers to within 3-2. It was the second two-point effort in the last three games for van Riemsdyk, who upped his team-leading point total to 39.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Scores one off face, one with stick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored two power-play goals on five shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

Van Riemsdyk knotted the score at a goal apiece in the second period with an unconventional tally, as a point shot was deflected on the way in and hit him square in the face before bouncing over the goal line. He went to the locker room for some repairs after that but emerged with a face shield in the third and proved he was fine by scoring on a more traditional deflection in front. JVR's up to 16 goals in 46 games this season, with nine coming on the power play. The puck to the face is unlikely to lead to any missed game action, though it could be wise to keep an eye out for any updates before Friday's rematch at Madison Square Garden.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Two helpers against Bruins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk picked up two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Bruins.

The veteran winger has been mired in a slump for nearly a month, finding the scoresheet only once in the last 13 games, but van Riemsdyk was able to make an impact in this one. Despite his recent struggles, JVR has a strong 13 goals and 33 points through 40 contests this season.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Ends brief point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk collected two assists with three shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Devils.

Van Riemsdyk entered the night stuck in a four-game point drought -- his longest such skid of the year -- but broke loose with assists on a pair of Sean Couturier goals in the third period. The 31-year-old van Riemsdyk has a team-leading 31 points in 31 games, putting him well within range of the 40 he put up in 66 contests in 2019-20.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Opens scoring Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout win over the Sabres.

Van Riemsdyk struck just 1:56 into the game, but the Sabres replied with three straight goals. The Flyers recovered from that, but van Riemsdyk wasn't part of their rally. The 31-year-old winger has 11 goals, 27 points, 53 shots on net and a plus-7 rating through 23 appearances.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Sparks offense in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk picked up a goal and an assist with four shots in a 3-0 win over Buffalo.

Van Riemsdyk set up Sean Couturier's goal that opened the scoring 22 seconds into the middle frame, then he sealed the victory with a tally of his own almost exactly 15 minutes later. Van Riemsdyk has been a force all season long, topping the Flyers in points (25), goals (10), assists (15), plus/minus (plus-8), power-play goals (seven) and power-play points (eight). The 31-year-old is tied for seventh in the NHL scoring race heading into Tuesday's clash with the Penguins.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Keeps on producing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored his league-leading seventh power-play goal of the year in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Van Riemsdyk deposited a backdoor tap-in 4:05 into the second period to give the Flyers a 3-1 lead. It was van Riemsdyk's team-leading ninth goal of the season and tied him for the NHL lead in power-play tallies. The 31-year-old is having a terrific campaign, pacing the Flyers in goals, points (22) and assists (13) after 16 games. He's reached the scoresheet in nine of his last 10 games and has goals in four of his last five.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Racks up three points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal and added two assists in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Bruins.

While van Riemsdyk was solid in the game, the Flyers as a team weren't able to keep up with the Bruins. In 15 games this year, van Riemsdyk has eight goals, 21 points, 33 shots on net and a plus-5 rating. He's already over halfway to his 40-point output from 66 appearances last season. Shooting 24.2 percent so far has helped the 31-year-old in a bounce-back campaign, but he shouldn't be expected to maintain this pace all season.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Next two games postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk and the Flyers won't face off with the Devils on Thursday or Saturday after the league postponed the games, per the NHL release Monday.

Van Riemsdyk will still get to take his seven-game point streak into Washington on Tuesday, but then will get some time to rest up ahead of Sunday's clash with the Rangers. The winger currently leads the team in points (18) and should continue to provide top-end fantasy value.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Stays hot against Caps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Capitals.

The veteran winger is having arguably the best run of his career as the greybeard on a line with Scott Laughton and Joel Farabee. JVR has found the scoresheet in seven straight games, piling up four goals and 13 points over that stretch, and on the season he already has seven goals and 18 points through 13 games. He's never scored more than 62 points in a full season, so there's no telling how long van Riemsdyk can keep up this frantic pace, but Philly coach Alain Vigneault isn't likely to break up that red-hot trio any time soon.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Scores only goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored a power-play goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.

The veteran winger extended his point streak to six games with his third-period tally. JVR has been a fantasy force to begin the season, racking up six goals and 16 points in 12 games with five of his goals, plus one of the helpers, coming on the power play. He's never come close to being a point-a-game player in his career, however, so the 31-year-old van Riemsdyk could come crashing back down to earth at any moment.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Riding five-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk notched an assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins on Wednesday.

Vam Riemsdyk earned the secondary helper on linemate Joel Farabee's third-period tally. Over the last five games, van Riemsdyk has racked up two tallies and seven assists. He's only seeing third-line minutes, but the 31-year-old winger has five goals, nine helpers, 23 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 11 contests this season. It won't last forever, but enjoy van Riemsdyk's hot start while you can.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Dishes four assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk dished out four assists and was plus-3 in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.

Van Riemsdyk drew the primary helper on all four Philadelphia goals, helping 20-year-old Joel Farabee collect his first NHL hat trick in the process. In addition to Farabee's three goals, van Riemsdyk also set up Kevin Hayes' power-play tally in overtime. The 31-year-old pushed his point streak to four games, a stretch in which he's put up two goals and six assists. It's worth noting that van Riemsdyk hasn't registered a single shot on goal in any of his last three contests, but he remains fantasy viable as long as he's piling up assists.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Lights lamp twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk potted two power-play goals on seven shots in Tuesday's 5-3 win over New Jersey.

Seconds after New Jersey's Yegor Sharangovich hit the post on a shorthanded breakaway in the first period, the Flyers gained the zone going the other way and moved the puck around to set up an Ivan Provorov blast from the point, which van Riemsdyk tipped in for the game's first goal. Van Riemsdyk doubled Philadelphia's lead in the first minute of the second period, as the New Jersey native enjoyed a fruitful homecoming. The veteran power forward has a pair of two-goal performances in his last three games and five goals through seven games this season.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Picks up two helpers in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk notched two assists in Friday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

The Flyers' offense has been roaring to begin the season, and even with a placement on the third line alongside Nolan Patrick and Jakub Voracek, JVR has still come through with a goal and three points in two games. The 31-year-old just fell short of the 20-goal plateau last season due to the truncated schedule, but given Philly's forward depth, van Riemsdyk might be able to get back to that level in 2020-21 even without a full 82-game slate.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Starting to warm up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored a goal on three shots Thursday in a 5-4 double-overtime win over the Islanders in Game 6.

Van Riemsdyk has goals in back-to-back games after being held without a point through his first nine contests. His blast from the top of the left faceoff circle on a partial break Thursday gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead with just over eight minutes left in the first period. The 31-year-old receives ample power-play time and is still capable of collecting goals in bunches; he scored in back-to-back games on six occasions during the regular season.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Tallies first of postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk scored a goal on his lone shot and had two hits in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders in Game 5.

After failing to produce a single point in his first nine playoff games, van Riemsdyk got untracked Tuesday with a one-timer on an odd-man rush that gave the Flyers a 2-1 lead late in the second period. The 31-year-old scored 19 times in 66 games during the regular season, so he's still plenty capable of providing offense despite his playoffs-long dry spell prior to Game 5.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Will sit as healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Van Riemsdyk will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's Game 4 versus Montreal, Bill Meltzer of reports.

Van Riemsdyk has only averaged 11:30 of ice time in the five contests he's suited up for thus far this postseason and has gone scoreless over that stretch, so coach Alain Vigneault is clearly hoping Tuesday's scratch will light a fire under the 31-year-old winger. JVR won't have to wait long for his next opportunity to crack the lineup, as the Flyers will be right back at it Wednesday for Game 5.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Will be ready by May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to general manager Chuck Fletcher, if the NHL resumed its season in May, van Riemsdyk would be ready to return, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

At this point, a return to play in May is looking more and more like a best-case scenario for the NHL, but if the league does return to action this year, even for an abbreviated playoffs, van Riemsdyk will almost certainly be ready to rock. The 30-year-old winger totaled 19 goals and 40 points in 66 games before the NHL halted its season in March.

Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Slated for 4-6 week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Updating a previous item, the official timeline for van Riemsdyk's (finger) timetable to return is 4-to-6 weeks, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Carchidi initially indicated that van Riemsdyk was expected to sit around six weeks, so the updated timetable leaves open the possibility that van Riemsdyk could make a return near the end of the regular season or for the start of the postseason. In any event, it's fairly safe to cut him loose in most redraft leagues at this point, though it will be worth monitoring his status toward the end of the season if he winds up at the early end of that timetable.
