Bunnaman has no points with a plus-2 rating in seven games since returning to the Flyers from the AHL on Jan. 31.
His minutes are increasing, but Bunnaman isn't getting much to the net. His last point came 11 games ago, and he has one goal and two points with a plus-5 rating in 17 NHL contests this season.
The Flyers promoted Bunnaman from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.
Bunnaman was sent to the minors so he could keep playing during the NHL's All-Star break, but he was always expected to be back with Philly ahead of Friday's clash with Pittsburgh. The 21-year-old has notched two points in nine games with the big club this campaign.
Philadelphia loaned Bunnaman to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.
The Flyers are off until Jan. 31 against Pittsburgh due to the All-Star break, so Bunnaman will head to the minors to stay sharp during the NHL's lengthy hiatus. He will, however, likely be back with the big club ahead of Philly's clash with the Penguins.
Bunnaman posted zero points and two hits in a 3-0 victory over the Penguins on Tuesday.
This was the 21-year-old's fourth straight game with two hits. He also has one assist, a plus-1 rating and two PIM during that stretch, as well. Overall, Bunnaman has a goal, two points and 14 hits in nine games this season.
The Flyers recalled Bunnaman from AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Anthony Mingioni of Center Ice Philly reports.
The 21-year-old will get his second stint with the big club, as he's played four games with the Flyers this year. He replaced David Kase on the roster, so it's likely that Bunnaman could draw into the lineup for Monday's game against Boston, especially considering Chris Stewart is dealing with an illness.
The Flyers assigned Bunnaman to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bunnaman has failed to tally a point in four appearances with the big club this season, so he'll hope to find his scoring touch in the minors. The 21-year-old will likely be back with the Flyers sooner rather than later.
Bunnaman is still searching for his first NHL point after another goose egg in a losing effort against the Oilers on Wednesday.
Owners are waiting for the 21-year-old to break through with his first NHL point. With just four shots on net in four contests, he hasn't recorded much in the stats department, but Bunnaman is also only averaging about 10 minutes of ice time per night. Bunnaman posted 19 goals and 32 points in 62 AHL games last season.
Bunnaman has earned a spot on Philadelphia's Opening Night roster.
Bunnaman spent the entirety of the 2018-19 campaign with AHL Lehigh Valley, notching 19 goals and 32 points in 62 games. The 2016 fourth-round pick will start the season on the Flyers' fourth line and may also see time as a penalty killer, but he won't have enough offensive upside to warrant fantasy consideration in 2019-20.
