Flyers' Joel Farabee: Set to join big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday that Farabee will be recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley.

James van Riemsdyk suffered a broken hand in Wednesday's game against the Capitals, so Farabee will ascend to the big club to take the veteran's place on the roster. Farabee has already amassed 20 points in 49 contests with the Flyers this season. The rookie winger can be expected to serve in a bottom-six role in Philly.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Heads back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers reassigned Farabee to AHL Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Farabee was brought up for Sunday's game versus the Rangers, but the 20-year-old forward served as a healthy scratch. The team only has 12 healthy forwards with Farabee in the minors, so he could be recalled before Wednesday's matchup versus Washington.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Philadelphia recalled Farabee from AHL Lehigh Valley on Saturday, Bill Meltzer of reports.

The Flyers only had 12 healthy forwards on their roster prior to Farabee's promotion, so he'll be on hand as an insurance policy for Sunday's matinee matchup with the Rangers. The New York native has notched seven goals and 20 points in 49 games with the big club this campaign.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Ushered to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers reassigned Farabee to AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday.

The Flyers acquired Derek Grant and Nate Thompson via trade Monday, so Farabee is the odd man out. This move will make Farabee, who will turn 20 years old Tuesday, eligible for the AHL playoffs, and he could be back up with the big club soon. He's proven he can play at the top level, producing 20 points through 49 games this year.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Two helpers Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee picked up two assists in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

He helped set up Kevin Hayes in the first period and Travis Konecny in the third. Farabee remains somewhat inconsistent -- not surprising for a teenager in the NHL -- but he's been showing off his skills lately, scoring four goals and eight points in his last 10 games despite missing three contests in the middle of that stretch due to a flu bug.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Cleared to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee (illness) is healthy ahead of Tuesday's road contest against the Islanders, reports.

Farabee missed the last three contests with his illness but is healthy Tuesday and should play. The rookie forward has 18 points in 43 NHL games this season.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Likely ready Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee (illness) won't play Monday versus the Panthers but should be cleared before Tuesday's game versus the Islanders, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Farabee will miss his third straight game, but it appears he'll be ready for Tuesday's divisional clash. The 19-year-old was just heating up before falling ill, as he stacked up four goals and two assists over his last six contests.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: No-go against Capitals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee (illness) won't play Saturday against Washington, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Farabee will miss a second straight game and has already lost a few pounds due to his illness, so at this point there's no telling if he'll be ready to return Monday against Florida. Nonetheless, another update on the 19-year-old rookie's status should surface prior to that contest.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee won't be in the lineup against the Devils on Thursday due to illness, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

After missing practice Wednesday, Farabee was still expected to be in action versus the Devils but appears to have taken a turn for the worse. The winger will be replaced in the lineup by the recently recalled Andy Andreoff. Prior to falling ill, the 19-year-old Farabee was on a roll with six points in his last six contests and will look to pick up where he left off once fully fit.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Teen on five-game streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee scored two goals in a 6-3 win over the Avalanche on Saturday night.

His point streak now stands at five games and six points (three goals, three assists). Farabee carries a sniper's pedigree from his days in the US National Development Program. The 19-year-old has made his mark with the Flyers this season, playing 42 games and tallying seven goals and 18 points. His future is bright.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Three-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee notched an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Flyers.

Since being called back up to the big club Jan. 16, Farabee has a point in three straight games. Although the 2018 first-round pick has spent some time in the minors, it looks like he's set to be a full-time NHLer down the stretch after playing his 40th game at the top level Tuesday. The 19-year-old has accrued 15 points with just one on the man advantage thus far.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Lights lamp at top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee scored his team's only goal in a 4-1 loss to Montreal on Thursday.

The fourth-line winger's last goal was Dec. 3, a span of 15 games for Farabee. Recently promoted from the minors after Chris Stewart cleared waivers, Farabee's performance could be enough to earn him more time at the top level, but don't expect much point production from the 19-year-old at this stage of his young career.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Promoted from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee was called up from AHL Lehigh Valley on Thursday.

Farabee will switch spots with Chris Stewart, who cleared waivers Thursday and was sent down to the minors. In his last 10 NHL outings, the 19-year-old Farabee has recorded one assist, two PIM and 11 shots while averaging 12:25 of ice time. The New York native will likely slot into a bottom-six role with the Flyers.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Loaned to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers loaned Farabee to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Farabee has failed to register a point in his last nine games, so the 19-year-old rookie will head to the minors to try and find his scoring touch against inferior competition. Philadelphia doesn't have a ton of depth up front, so Farabee will likely be back with the big club sooner rather than later.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Struggling to score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee has zero goals or points with a minus-2 rating in his last nine games.

The first-round pick's rookie season has been a disappointment, especially lately. His last goal came on Dec. 3, and while he hasn't played in all of Philadelphia's games since that date, it's still been 16 contests since Farabee found the back of the net. His best contributions have been to the PIM category. He has three goals, 12 points, a minus-1 rating, 37 PIM and 55 shots in 37 games this season.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Looking for more production
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee posted two shots on net, two hits and a block in a 6-2 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday.

After a decent start to the season, Farabee has gone quiet the last few weeks, at least in the scoring categories, with no goals and two assists in the last 11 games. Farabee is averaging only one shot on goal per game during that stretch. He's been most valuable in PIM, as he's racked up 25 PIM in the last nine games because of three major penalties. Farabee's not consistently going to the box, though, so owners probably shouldn't count on that as the sole reason to keep him in lineups. He has three goals and 12 points with a minus-1 rating and 35 PIM in 32 games this season.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Eligible to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee (suspension) served his three-match ban and is available for Monday's matchup with the Rangers.

Farabee was handed a three-game suspension for a late hit on Jets' Mathieu Perreault. With the winger now eligible to play, he should slot into a bottom-six role, though he could also get a look with the second line over Nicolas Aube-Kubel.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Suspended three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee was suspended three games for his actions in Sunday's contest against Winnipeg.

Farabee crushed Jets forward Mathieu Perreault with a late hit in Sunday's contest and received a five-minute major penalty for it. After his suspension, the 19-year-old rookie should return on Dec. 23 against the Rangers.

Flyers' Joel Farabee: Hearing with player safety Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee will have a meeting with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday.

Farabee crushed Mathieu Perreault with a blindside hit in the second period of Sunday's contest that resulted in a five-minute major penalty. Perreault left the contest and did not return. It would not be surprising to see Farabee get suspended for this hit.

November 27, 2019 12:16 AM
Flyers' Joel Farabee: Struggling to score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Farabee has two goals and six points with a minus-3 rating in 18 games this season.

His rookie season started decently with two goals and four points in the first 10 games, but since then, Farabee has just two assists in the last eight contests. His playing time is down almost two minutes per game since Nov. 9 as well. So while Farabee has shown promise, he's currently trending in the wrong direction.
