Braun posted three assists, including one on the power play, and a plus-1 rating in a 6-2 victory over the Panthers on Thursday.
The three helpers move Braun within one of his assist total from his final season with the Sharks in 2018-19. Braun has been racking up the assists lately, as he has five of them in the last four games. He also has a plus-6 rating during that stretch. Braun has posted three goals and 16 points with a minus-1 rating and 62 shots on net in 52 games this season.
Braun scored an empty-net goal with a plus-1 rating, two shots, three blocks and two hits in a 3-0 victory over the Penguins on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old tallied his first goal of the season Dec. 31, and he now he has three scores in his last five games. All of a sudden, Braun is threatening to set a career high in goals (his best mark in a season is five) behind his 5.6 shooting percentage. He has three goals, 11 points, a minus-9 rating, 54 shots, 64 hits and 63 blocks in 44 games this season.
Braun (groin) will play in Saturday's game versus the Kings, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Braun tested it out during morning skate, and he's feeling good enough to return ahead of schedule. There could be a cap on the 32-year-old's minutes after missing the last six games, and he's in line to work on the bottom pairing. Braun has accrued 10 points through 42 games this year.
Braun (groin) joined the team for Saturday's practice session.
It remains to be seen if Braun will get back into the lineup for Saturday's tilt against the Kings, but it looks like a strong possibility right now. The 32-year-old blueliner has missed the last six games with his groin injury.
Braun (groin) could return to action as soon as Saturday against L.A.
Braun was initially expected to be sidelined through the All-Star break, but his recovery is evidently ahead of schedule. Once he's given the green light, the 32-year-old American, who's picked up 10 points in 42 games this campaign, will return to a bottom-four role for the Flyers.
Braun (groin) will be out of the lineup through the All-Star break, the team announced Monday.
Braun will miss at least the next eight games based on his recovery timeline with a potential return date of Jan. 31 versus the Penguins. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner seemed to have found a scoring touch with five points in his last six outings. With the Minneapolis native on the shelf, Robert Hagg will slot into the lineup. GIven the length of Braun's impending absence, he figures to be placed on injured reserve in the coming days.
Braun netted a goal on two shots in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Coyotes.
Braun has half of his season output in his last six games. The defenseman has posted five points (two tallies, three helpers) in that span. For the year, the 32-year-old has added 60 hits, 59 blocked shots and 52 shots on goal through 42 contests.
Braun scored a goal and added a helper in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Kings.
Somewhat surprisingly, Tuesday marked Braun's second multi-point effort in the last four games. The defenseman now has nine points, 59 hits, 57 blocked shots and a minus-11 rating through 40 contests this season. He's mostly used in defensive situations, which will continue to limit his fantasy value.
Braun collected a pair of assists during Monday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.
The 32-year-old remains without a goal this season, but Braun's two assists give him seven in 37 games in 2019-20. Considering he'd been held off the scoresheet in nine straight games prior to Monday's win, Bruan's fantasy value remains very low outside of deeper leagues.
Braun has zero points and a minus-1 rating with two PIM in the last eight games.
It's been a disappointing first season in Philadelphia for Braun, who still doesn't have a goal this season. He also has five assists with a minus-11 rating. Braun owns a minus-25 rating in 113 games since the start of 2018-19 season. The lack of scoring and poor plus-minus make it very difficult to trust Braun at the moment.
Braun has no goals and four assists with a minus-10 rating in 26 games this season.
The 32-year-old is still searching for his first goal of the season, but perhaps the stat most detrimental to his value is the fact he only has one assist in the last 16 games. Braun does have an assist and six shots on net in his most recent three contests, though, so hopefully that's a sign he's turning the corner.
Braun has no goals and three assists with a minus-12 rating in 17 games this season.
The lack of scoring isn't all that much of a surprise, but combining that with the poor plus-minus has made Braun unreliable in fantasy formats. His playing time is down more than three minutes per game compared to last year, and as a result, he's averaging fewer shots, blocks and hits.
Braun posted five shots on net with a minus-1 rating, one hit and one block in a 7-4 victory against the Blue Jackets on Saturday.
The 32-year-old came in averaging just one shot on goal per game, so despite no scoring, this was definitely a big offensive outing. Braun received more playing time Saturday than he's been used to this season, but he still posted five shots without any power-play ice time. Braun has zero goals and two points with a minus-5 rating and 13 shots in nine contests this season.
Braun posted an assist with a minus-2 rating, one hit and one block in a 6-3 loss to the Oilers on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old now has two points (both assists) in the first five games of the season. While that's decent production for the blueliner, Braun also has a minus-5 rating through five games. Last season, he owned a career-worst minus-14 rating, so it's fair to be concerned about Braun as a liability in the plus-minus department.
The Sharks traded Braun to the Flyers in exchange for a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 third-round pick Tuesday.
The Sharks primarily made this move to free up some much needed cap space, so the pair of draft picks they'll be getting back in return are really just an added bonus. Braun's lack of offensive upside will prevent him from being a viable option in most fantasy formats, but he should be able to log 20-plus minutes of ice time per night and hold his own against the opposition's top forwards, making him a valuable piece for Philadelphia.
Braun dished out an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.
Braun also added two PIM in the contest. The 32-year-old blueliner has 15 points in 67 games this season, a large step down from the 33 points he recorded last year but much more in line with his career norms. Braun also has 94 hits and 109 blocked shots to his name, which could make him useful to fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Braun tallied an assist and got in a fight in a 6-5 loss to the Bruins on Monday.
Braun provided the secondary assist on center Joe Thornton's hat-trick-clinching goal. His fight came earlier in the game, as he dropped the mitts with Bruins forward Chris Wagner. Since returning from a knee injury in January, Braun has five assists in 14 games. He typically serves a more defensive role on ice, so his fantasy value remains limited.
Braun (knee) is slated to return against the Senators on Saturday, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Pending his removal from injured reserve, Braun reportedly will link up with Tim Heed in the upcoming contest. It's a third-pairing assignment, and we'll be able to determine whether the defenseman is near 100 percent if he ends up coming close to the 19:55 of ice time that he's averaged through 42 games this season. The 31-year-old remains a streaky offensive contributor with his upside seemingly capped at about 35 points per season.
Braun (knee) is doubtful to play Thursday night against the Golden Knights, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Braun needs a miraculous turnaround in order to be cleared for the upcoming game in Sin City. As far as we know, the defenseman hasn't been able to practice since sustaining his injury last Wednesday, and it's confirmed that he remains on injured reserve for the time being. Still, we'll keep you posted if it starts to look like he may be able to return ahead of Saturday's home game against the Senators.
The Sharks have placed Braun (knee) on injured reserve, Kevin Kurz of The Athletic reports.
Braun's placement on IR was almost certainly made retroactive to Jan. 2, but he'll still miss San Jose's next three contests at a minimum. The recently recalled Jacob Middleton will likely slide into Braun's spot in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Tampa Bay.
