Patrick and Philippe Myers were traded by the Flyers to Nashville in exchange for Ryan Ellis on Saturday. Patrick was subsequently traded to the Golden Knights in exchange for Cody Glass, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Patrick missed the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign due to health issues, but he's still logged three full seasons with Philadelphia since being selected second overall in the 2017 draft, totaling 30 goals and 70 points in 197 appearances over that span. The 22-year-old pivot will likely start off in Vegas' bottom six, but he could ascend to the team's top six if he performs well early on.
Patrick (head) will be ready to return Thursday versus the Rangers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Patrick missed the Flyers' last two games after taking a puck to the head during Thursday's win over Pittsburgh, but he'll return to a bottom-six role for Thursday's matchup with the Rangers. He's picked up eight points through 42 games this season.
Patrick (head) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Coach Alain Vigneault said Patrick sat out of Saturday's loss to the Capitals as a precautionary measure, and it appears the Flyers will remain cautious Sunday. Patrick's next chance to play is Thursday versus the Rangers.
Coach Alain Vigneault said that Patrick was held out of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals for precautionary reasons after taking a puck to the head Thursday, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.
Patrick has a serious concussion history, so the Flyers exercised caution with the 22-year-old after a scare during Thursday's win over the Penguins. The 2017 second overall pick should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Islanders. Fantasy managers shouldn't be too concerned, as Patrick has accrued just eight points and a minus-19 rating through 42 games.
Patrick (undisclosed) won't play Saturday versus Washington, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
It isn't clear if Patrick is dealing with an undisclosed issue or sitting as a healthy scratch, but either way, he won't be in the lineup against the Capitals. He's totaled just eight points in 42 games this season.
Patrick will be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Sabres, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Head coach Alain Vigneault said both Patrick and Oskar Lindblom "need a break." Perhaps they're dealing with minor injuries as well, but this sounds more like recalibration than recovery. Patrick has posted two goals, 26 shots on net and a minus-20 rating over the past 27 games.
Patrick has two goals and four assists through the first six games of the season.
Patrick has hovered around 15 minutes per game so far, and he's producing roughly in line with his career pace. The 22-year-old center had 61 points in 145 career games before missing all of the 2019-20 campaign due to a migraine disorder. The Flyers have the luxury of rolling three scoring lines regularly, so Patrick can be a solid addition to fantasy rosters in deeper formats.
Patrick (head) was on the ice for Monday's practice, Bill Meltzer of the Flyers' official site reports.
Patrick missed all of last season due to a migraine disorder, but it sounds like he has found a way to work around the issue and will be able to join the Flyers this season. Where the second overall pick from the 2017 draft slots in remains to be seen.
Patrick (head) said Thursday that he's been skating without issues and his headaches have diminished, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
This is certainly positive news for the 2017 second overall pick, as he missed the entire 2019-20 season due to a migraine disorder. Despite a few more hurdles needing to clear for Patrick, he continues to make progress in his return to the ice. The Flyers continue to be optimistic about the 22-year-old's chances to return to the ice next season or in the future, as Patrick has supplied 26 goals and 61 games through the first three years of his NHL career.
Patrick (head) has accepted his qualifying offer for the 2020-21 season.
Patrick missed the entirety of the 2019-2020 campaign due to a migraine disorder, but he's reportedly continued to improve in recent months, and the Flyers are clearly still holding out hope that he'll be able to contribute in some fashion next season. The second overall pick from the 2017 draft has picked up 26 goals and 61 points in 145 games through the first three years of his professional career.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
General manager Chuck Fletcher said he expects Patrick (head) to play at some point this season, NHL.com 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.
Patrick (head) is slated to participate in the Flyers' morning skate Tuesday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com 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.
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.
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.
Patrick (head) joined the team for the end of Monday's morning skate and wore a non-contact jersey, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com 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.
