Flyers' Alex Lyon: Heads back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers reassigned Lyon to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday.

Lyon was called up to play the No. 2 role while Carter Hart (abdomen) was on the mend, and the former recorded an .890 save percentage and 1-1-0 record. Hart is good to go, though, so Lyon will head back to minors.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Light workload in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon allowed one goal on two shots in relief of Brian Elliott in Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Devils.

Lyon played the final 15:19 after replacing an ineffective Elliott. He wasn't busy but still allowed New Jersey to pad its lead further down the stretch. Lyon has done little to earn any more playing time, even if Carter Hart (abdomen) continues to miss time.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: First win this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon made 28 saves in a 6-3 win over Colorado on Saturday.

It was his first NHL win this season in his second start. Lyon will be headed back to the AHL the moment Carter Hart is back from injury, so no need to roster him.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Starting against Avalanche
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon will tend the twine in Saturday's road matchup with Colorado, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.

Lyon gave up four goals on 40 shots in his lone NHL appearance this season and will be hoping to put together a better performance versus the Avs. In 14 career appearances (nine starts) for the Flyers, the 27-year-old netminder is 4-4-1 with an .894 save percentage and 3.14 GAA. Once Carter Hart (abdomen) is cleared to play, Lyon will find himself back with AHL Lehigh Valley.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Recalled from bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers promoted Lyon from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

Carter Hart (abdomen) is expected to be sidelined for at least one more week, so Lyon will fill in as Brian Elliott's backup for the foreseeable future. The 27-year-old allowed four goals on 40 shots en route to a 4-1 loss to the Canadiens in his lone appearance with the big club this season.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Dropped down a level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers loaned Lyon to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

The Flyers are off until Jan. 31 against the Penguins, so Lyon will head down to continue playing during the NHL's All-Star break. If Carter Hart (abdomen) is ready to return following the league's hiatus, Lyon will remain in the minors. If not, the 27-year-old will once again be summoned by the big club.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Defeated at home by Habs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon allowed four goals on 40 shots, making 36 saves in a 4-1 loss to Montreal on Thursday.

The 27-year-old was making his first start of the season at the NHL level, promoted in the wake of Carter Hart's abdominal injury, but failed to pick up the win. Lyon has 19 wins in the minors this season, but his last victory at the NHL level was back in 2017, meaning trusting him to deliver in fantasy won't be easy. Even set for a decent NHL workload because of Hart's injury, Lyon isn't worth owning in fantasy.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Getting starting nod Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon will defend the home net Thursday against the Canadiens in his season debut.

Lyon has spent the majority of the season with AHL Lehigh Valley but was recalled Tuesday following the news that Carter Hart will be sidelined due to a lower-body injury. After Brian Elliott was given the nod Wednesday, Lyon will make his season debut Thursday against a Canadiens club racking up 3.35 goals per game on the road, good for the sixth-best mark in the NHL.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers recalled Lyon from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Carter Hart is dealing with a lower-body issue, so Lyon will be on hand to serve as Brian Elliott's backup Wednesday against St. Louis. The 27-year-old backstop will be shipped back to the minors as soon as Hart is ready to return.

December 17, 2018 02:52 PM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon was re-assigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday.

Monday was a busy day for the Flyers. In addition to firing head coach Dave Hakstol, the team called up Carter Hart from the AHL and put Anthony Stolarz on injured reserve. Now, Lyon is replacing Hart down in the minors.

December 16, 2018 11:56 AM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Decent in emergency showing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon stopped 17 of 19 shots in relief of injured starter Anthony Stolarz (lower body) in Saturday's 5-1 road loss to the Canucks.

Lyon stepped in for Stolarz approximately halfway through the first period, and the rookie performed reasonably well considering Lyon hadn't had much prep time with the parent club and was biding his time with AHL Lehigh Valley before his promotion Thursday. The Flyers have a messy situation in goal, as Brian Elliott (lower body), Michal Neuvirth (personal) and Stolarz are all tending to one matter or another ahead of Tuesday's home game against the Red Wings.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers recalled Lyon from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

Brian Elliott (lower body) has returned to Philadelphia to undergo further evaluation, and Michal Neuvirth has done the same to be present for the birth of his child, so Lyon may get an opportunity to start in goal Friday against the Oilers or Saturday against Vancouver. The 26-year-old American hasn't played well in the minors this season, compiling a 3-4-0 record while posting a subpar 3.48 GAA and .907 save percentage in seven appearances.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Loaned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon was sent down to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday.

Lyon had been dealing with a lower-body injury, although this move suggests the 25-year-old is fully recovered. He saw just one period of action as a Flyer and allowed four goals on 12 shots. This move could be indicative that Brian Elliott is nearing a return from a lower-body injury suffered back on Nov. 15.

November 24, 2018 06:20 PM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Dealing with lower-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon is considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers simply can't catch a break, as Lyon is now the third Philadelphia netminder dealing with an injury. The 25-year-old American will be reevaluated ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Senators, but for now, the Flyers will have to rely on Calvin Pickard and Anthony Stolarz in goal.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Yields four goals in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon allowed four goals on 12 shots before getting pulled in his season debut during a 5-2 loss to the Sabres on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old wasn't a hot pick to stream Wednesday, and this was why. The Sabres are on a seven-game winning streak, and during that stretch, they are averaging 3.86 goals per game. Last season, Lyon went 4-2-1 with a .905 save percentage and 2.75 GAA. He will be headed back to the minors once either Brian Elliott (lower body) or Michal Neuvirth (undisclosed) return from injury.

Flyers' Alex Lyon: Protecting net against Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon will be in goal on the road versus Buffalo on Wednesday.

Lyon becomes the fourth netminder to start a game for the Flyers this season as he makes his 2018-19 debut. The 24-year-old saw action in 11 NHL contests last year in which he went 4-2-1 with a .905 save percentage. Once Brian Elliott (lower body) or Michal Neuvirth (undisclosed) is cleared to return, Lyon will be sent back to the minors.

November 16, 2018 10:48 AM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Promoted to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.

Brian Elliott sustained a groin injury in Thursday's game against the Devils, so the Flyers have called up Lyon in case Philadelphia's No. 1 netminder doesn't end up dressing for Saturday's matinee at home against the Lightning. Lyon posted a 2-2-0 record with a 3.54 GAA and .910 save percentage for the AHL's Phantoms ahead of his latest ascension to the top level.

November 7, 2018 02:56 PM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon was demoted to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

The move to send Lyon back to the Phantoms likely indicates Brian Elliott (undisclosed) will at least be healthy enough to serve as the backup versus the Coyotes on Thursday. The youngster Lyon will return to the minors, where he is sporting a 2-1-0 record with a .934 save percentage while splitting time with Carter Hart.

November 6, 2018 02:48 AM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon was recalled from AHL Leigh Valley on Monday.

Lyon has started three games in the minors, posting a 2-1-0 record. The 25-year-old has yet to feature in an NHL contest in 2018-19, but Lyon's save percentage with AHL Leigh Valley is .934, which is stellar in any league. With Michal Neuvirth (undisclosed) on injured reserve and Brian Elliott (undisclosed) out after a collision in practice, expect Lyon to occupy the backup spot behind Calvin Pickard on Monday in Arizona.

October 11, 2018 03:16 AM
Flyers' Alex Lyon: Activated from injury status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lyon has been activated from his injured non-roster status, and the Flyers have loaned him to AHL Lehigh Valley.

The 25-year-old has recovered from his lower-body injury, which sidelined him for about three weeks. He returned one week faster than originally estimated. The bad news is the injury cost Lyon a chance to earn an NHL spot out of training camp. He'll have to work his way back up and probably wait for an injury to return to the Flyers.
