Philadelphia reassigned Vorobyov to AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.
The Flyers recalled David Kase in a corresponding move, so Vorobyov will remain in the minors for the foreseeable future. He'll likely get another shot with the big club later this season, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.
Vorobyev posted an assist in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Kings.
Vorobyev had the lone helper on Justin Braun's second-period tally. The Russian center is up to three points and 13 shots on goal in 17 contests this year. He plays on the fourth line -- fantasy owners likely won't need to dig as deep as Vorobyev to fill out their rosters.
Vorobyov has a goal on one shot with an even rating in the last three games.
The 22-year-old has played in a lot of games since being promoted back to the NHL early in December. He's matched last season's total of one goal and two points in 14 games during 2019-20. Vorobyov is mostly trending in the right direction, but he doesn't receive enough playing time or get enough shots on net to be considered even a deep fantasy league option.
The Flyers recalled Vorobyov from AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.
Michael Raffl is expected to be sidelined for four weeks with a fractured finger, so Vorobyov could be in for an extended stay with the big club. The 22-year-old has racked up five goals and 14 points in 19 games with Lehigh Valley this season.
The Flyers loaned Vorobyov to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.
Vorobyov only appeared in one game during his brief stay with the big club, going scoreless in 7:34 of ice time. The 22-year-old forward will log top-six minutes with Lehigh Valley.
The Flyers recalled Vorobyov from AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.
Philadelphia sent German Rubtsov to the minors in a corresponding move, so Vorobyov will round out the team's depth up front for the foreseeable future. The 22-year-old Russian has picked up four points in eight AHL appearances this season.
Vorobyov was demoted to the minors Thursday.
Vorobyov appeared in five games after being called up Oct. 20, in which he registered one assist, four shots and one block while averaging 9:04 of ice time. With the Russian joining up with the Phantoms, the club promoted German Rubtsov and Carsen Twarynski. If any one of those two can impress, it could prevent Vorobyov from earning another look this year.
Vorobyov was promoted from AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday.
Vorobyov spent 15 games at the NHL level last season, notching a goal and two points in a small role. He was off to a decent start in the minors this season with four points in five games. The 22-year-old Russian will either be a healthy scratch or see a limited bottom-six role.
The Flyers loaned Vorobyev to AHL Lehigh Valley on Saturday.
Vorobyov has gone scoreless while averaging just 7:13 of ice time in eight appearances since being recalled by the big club on Jan. 27, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The Russian forward will hope to find his scoring touch in the minors, where he's tallied 22 points in 32 games this campaign.
Vorobyov has no points in five NHL games since returning to the Flyers on Jan. 27.
Dating back to his previous NHL tenure, Vorobyov has no points in the last 10 games and two points (a goal and assist) in 12 contests. He's played very well in the AHL, tallying 22 points in 32 games, but it just simply hasn't translated yet for the Flyers.
Vorobyov was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday.
The 22-year-old already has seven NHL games under his belt this season. In those seven appearances, Vorobyov managed a goal and an assist. Meanwhile, playing a level down, Vorobyov has been much more effective, tallying 22 points over 32 minor-league contests. He's been on fire in the minors recently, a development that likely prompted this promotion.
Vorobyov was assigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Vorobyov has averaged 11:45 through his first seven NHL games and notched a goal and an assist. The rookie has logged consistent power-play minutes, but his even strength play has been a black mark, as Vorobyov posted a 38.9 Corsi For percentage thus far.
Vorobyov returned to the lineup Saturday against the Islanders after being a healthy scratch for four games.
It was his first game in almost two weeks, and it looked like it for the 21-year-old. He played 8:01, recording one shot and one block. That's the only shot on goal he has in the last five games. There's no guarantee Vorobyov will remain in the lineup Tuesday against the Ducks.
Vorobyov was a healthy scratch against the Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
The 21-year-old has a goal and two points in six games, but on Tuesday against the Panthers, he only skated 8:04. In his last four games, he hasn't registered a point. Vorobyov received a lot of hype during the preseason, but apparently the honeymoon is over, as he needs to start producing in order to stay in the lineup.
Vorobyov scored his first NHL goal in a 5-2 loss to the Avalanche on Saturday.
The Flyers have been very high on the 21-year-old, and fantasy owners are beginning to see why. He picked up an assist in the opener and then scored an unassisted goal Saturday. Owners should keep an eye on him in deeper leagues.
Vorobyov will begin the season on the Flyers roster, and according to general manager Ron Hextall, he 'earned' his spot.
The 21-year-old will skate on the Flyers' third line next to Wayne Simmonds and probably James van Riemsdyk when the team opens the season against the Golden Knights on Thursday. Philadelphia's extremely high on Vorobyov, and if he remains on the third line all season, he has a chance to be a solid fantasy contributor in deep leagues. He scored nine goals and 29 points in 58 AHL games last season.
Vorobyov has looked very good during training camp and is a sleeper candidate to become the Flyers' third-line center at the beginning of the season Mary Clarke of The Athletic reports.
The 21-year-old prospect struggled in the faceoff circle during the team's first preseason game, but he also scored the Flyers' first goal. Last season, Vorobyov scored nine goals and 29 points in 58 AHL games. Those aren't eye-popping numbers, but the Flyers are very high on him, and he's looked impressive this month. If Voroboyv earns the third-line center role, he would likely receive playing time next to proven fantasy commodity Wayne Simmonds and fellow prospect Oskar Lindblom.
Vorobyov was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.
Vorobyov was promoted for just one day before getting reassigned to the minors, which could be a trend for him this season as an emergency depth option for the Flyers. The center will be getting his first taste of North American hockey this season after coming over from the KHL.
Vorobyov was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
While it's unclear whether the Flyers are legitimately interested in Vorobyov's services or are just using him to push other players, the 20-year-old will get his shot to make the Opening Night roster. That said, if he does make the cut, he likely won't serve as anything more than a bottom-six depth guy, so it's prudent to simply watch from afar at this point.
