Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Continuing to improve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to general manager Chuck Fletcher, Patrick (head) is "living a mostly normal life" and is continuing to improve. He also noted the Flyers are counting on him playing at some point next season, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Patrick is a restricted free agent, so Fletcher's comments more or less confirm Philadelphia will be extending him a qualifying offer this offseason. The second overall pick from the 2017 draft missed the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign due to a migraine disorder, and although the Flyers have continually referenced the progress he's making in his recovery, he hasn't been able to practice let alone skate with the team in over a year. At this point there's no telling if the 21-year-old pivot will be available for next season's training camp.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Missing from camp roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) was left off the Flyers' training camp roster.

Patrick hasn't played since April 2, 2019 due to his lingering migraine disorder and hasn't been cleared for contact. While the team has maintained he is trending in the right direction, the fact that he is unavailable to even skate with the team doesn't bode well for his availability heading into the 2020-21 campaign. If they haven't already, fantasy players in dynasty formats may want to consider dumping Nolan at this point.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Still not cleared for contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) has yet to be cleared for contact, as general manager Chuck Fletcher told reporters, "Nolan continues to work out daily. He has not been cleared for contact."

At this point, even with the league hiatus, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Patrick suits up for the Flyers this year. Considering the center has barely reached the 30-point mark in his first two seasons, and the fact that he hasn't played in a game in over a year (April 2, 2019, versus Dallas), fantasy owners awaiting his return may want to consider bailing on Patrick.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Making progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said Monday that Patrick (head) is "trending in the right direction" while he recovers from a migraine disorder, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

While it's good to hear that Patrick is progressing, Fletcher didn't offer many specifics regarding what exactly the 21-year-old has been able to do since the Flyers went their separate ways in mid-March when the NHL suspended its season. Prior to the hiatus, Patrick had been limited to skating on his own and had yet to be cleared for contact, so that's likely the main hurdle he'll have to pass before the Flyers assess his availability for game action. Fletcher was non-committal about Patrick being able to play once the season resumes.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Will play in minors prior to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) will be sent down to AHL Lehigh Valley before he will play in a game for the Flyers, Charlie O'Connor of The Athletic reports.

The Flyers have just 23 games remaining on the schedule in which Patrick could return to action. Until the center gets reassigned to the minors on a conditioning assignment, fantasy owners should continue to consider him out indefinitely.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Making some progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Chuck Fletcher said he expects Patrick (head) to play at some point this season, reports. "He's been skating harder. Skated again [Tuesday]," Fletcher said. "Getting his heart rate up higher. I think he's feeling a bit better."

The 21-year-old Patrick hasn't played all season due to a migraine disorder. Fletcher relayed that Patrick is working hard on his conditioning, so the team hopes he can elevate to the next level -- participating in practice -- soon. It appears there are still a few hurdles to get over, so Patrick could still be a month or two from a return.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Taking part in morning skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) is slated to participate in the Flyers' morning skate Tuesday, Bill Meltzer of reports.

While it's a good sign that Patrick continues to work out on the ice, it's unclear when he'll be ready to take contact in practice. The 21-year-old has been sidelined all season as a result of a migraine disorder.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Skates alone Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) skated prior to the Flyers' practice Monday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Patrick has yet to play this season while he deals with migraine issues. The 21-year-old has yet to practice with the team so he's likely not close to returning.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Placed on long-term injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) was designated for long-term injured reserve Friday.

The move doesn't alter Patrick's expected recovery timeline, but does give the Flyers some cap flexibility with the center sidelined. At this point, the Winnipeg native should probably be classified as week-to-week, especially considering he has yet to rejoin his teammates on the ice.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Skates with non-contact sweater
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (head) joined the team for the end of Monday's morning skate and wore a non-contact jersey, Adam Kimelman of reports.

Patrick also sported a tinted visor as he recovers from a migraine disorder. It's a good sign that he's back on the ice, but Patrick will need to shed the non-contact sweater before he gets back into a game. Although Patrick only had 61 points over his first two years in the league, the Flyers could use a spark after posting just seven goals over the last four games.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Still week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to general manager Chuck Fletcher, Patrick (head) is still considered week-to-week, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Patrick is dealing with a migraine disorder, and at this point there's no telling when he might be ready to start practicing. The 21-year-old forward should be considered out indefinitely until he's able to resume on-ice activities with his teammates.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Won't travel for Global Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick is dealing with a migraine disorder that will sideline him for the Flyers' trip to the Czech Republic to play against Chicago on Oct. 4 and is considered week-to-week.

Patrick was already facing a reduced role this season as the third-line center, but this injury could keep him on the shelf long term. In the youngster's absence, both Morgan Frost (groin) and Scott Laughton could be in line for an uptick in minutes and a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: In doubt for Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (upper body) could miss the Flyers' Opening Night clash with Chicago on Oct. 4, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The team is expected to give an update on Patrick's injury soon, but it certainly sounds like he won't be playing in the first couple of games. The center has failed to live up to expectations after being taken No. 2 overall in the 2017 NHL Draft, as he has managed just 61 points in two combined seasons. The addition of Kevin Hayes in the offseason will only serve to relegate Patrick to a bottom-six role and makes him a mid-range fantasy option at best.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Still week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (upper body) remains week-to-week, but did skate Wednesday, Bill Meltzer of reports.

Meltzer also confessed that he didn't see Patrick skate either of the last two days, but said he could have been on another rink or on at an earlier time than he was present. His questionable status for Opening Night on Oct. 4 against the Blackhawks hasn't changed much in the past week, but his skating session Wednesday at least represents a step in the right direction.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: In doubt for Opening Night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (upper body) is considered week-to-week and could miss Opening Night against the Blackhawks on Oct. 4, Bill Meltzer of reports.

It's a rough start to the season for Patrick, who was already slated to drop into a third-line role following the summer signing of Kevin Hayes. After being drafted No.2 overall in 2017, expectations were high for the Winnipeg native, but he's only totaled 61 points in 145 games through his first two NHL campaigns. An extended absence to start the 2019-20 campaign won't improve the youngsters chances of cracking the 15-goal or 35-point thresholds in 2019-20.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Sidelined by upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick has not been cleared to participate in on-ice practices due to an upper-body injury, Bill Meltzer of reports.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise, as Patrick had been skating regularly in the lead-up to training camp, but at this point there's no reason to believe he's dealing with anything serious. Another update on the 20-year-old pivot's status should surface once he's given the green light to return to practice.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Scores 13 goals again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick finished with 13 goals and 31 points with 115 shots on net in 72 games this season.

The 20-year-old's scoring numbers were nearly identical to his rookie season totals. In 2017-18, he scored 13 goals and 30 points with 127 shots on net. Patrick played one fewer game and averaged fewer shots per contest, but he still tallied 13 markers because of a 1.1 percent increase in his shooting percentage. Patrick also left something to be desired during the stretch run with one point in the final nine games.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Ruled out for final game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (undisclosed) will miss the season finale against the Hurricanes on Saturday, Adam Kimelman of reports.

Patrick's NHL development has been painstakingly slow, as the second overall pick from 2017 finishes his second year with 31 points -- just one more than his rookie campaign. Various injuries haven't paid Patrick any favors, but his lofty draft profile alone leaves hope that he could break out in his third year.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's contest against the Blues, Bill Meltzer of reports.

Patrick was a game-time decision heading into the contest, but seemingly will not play. With Philadelphia out of playoff contention, the club likely doesn't want to rush the Manitoba native back to the ice too soon. The next and final opportunity for Patrick to play would be Saturday's matchup with the Hurricanes.

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: No lock to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrick (undisclosed) is shaping up to be a game-time decision for Thursday's clash against the Blues, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

With the Flyers out of playoff contention, Patrick could be rested with only two games remaining in the regular season. The second-year pivot only has three points in the last 10 contests, and that includes eight appearances in which he was held off the scoresheet entirely. If you're depending on him Thursday, check back closer to warmups and ahead of the 8:00 p.m. ET puck drop.
