  • Islanders' Valtteri Filppula: Signs with Islanders

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/18) Filppula inked a one-year, $2.75 million deal with the Islanders on Sunday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    You may have heard that the Islanders found themselves in the market for a center. Filppula won't replace John Tavares, but he has a bit of punch offensively. He tallied 11 goals and 22 assists last season, although he only put 70 shots on net in 81 games.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Big boss in Philly wants to keep him

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/26/18) Flyers GM Ron Hextall said he wants to re-sign Filppula, who is a pending unrestricted free agent, Dave Isaac of the Courier Post reports.

    The Finn generated a shorthanded goal and two assists over six games in the conference quarterfinals loss to the Penguins, but all of that production transpired in Game 5 last Friday. Filppula is a 34-year-old with a high hockey IQ and the Flyers -- who ranked 29th overall in killing off penalties during the regular season -- can ill-afford to lose one of their best line defensemen in that critical special teams situation. However, it's worth noting that Filppula made $5 million annually on a five-year contract, meaning Hextall will probably need to get creative if he's serious about re-signing the veteran.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Posts three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/21/18) Filppula recorded a shorthanded goal and two assists on four shots during a 4-2 victory over the Penguins on Friday.

    The Penguins still lead the series, 3-2. Sean Couturier returned for this one, but the Flyers still needed production from other areas besides their top line to extend the series. They received it from Filppula, who made the play of the game, converting a shorthanded attempt into a goal to tie the game late in the second period. He also assisted the empty-net score. Those were his first three points of the 2018 postseason, but Filppula does have 25 goals and 82 points in his 157-game playoff career.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Will play Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/18) Filppula (arm) will suit up for Sunday's contest against the Bruins.

    Fortunately, Filppula missed just one contest -- Wednesday's 2-1 win in Colorado -- with his arm injury. The 34-year-old forward has 11 goals and 33 points in 77 games played this season. His return is great for the Flyers, as the team is looking to hold on to its playoff spot down the stretch.

    Flyers' Valtteri Filppula: Out with arm injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/18) Filppula is not in the lineup Wednesday due to an arm injury suffered Tuesday against the Stars, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Filppula was still expected to play despite the injury, but it appears he will indeed be unavailable for the contest. Without him, Dale Weise will enter the lineup for the Flyers, while Jordan Weal could be a candidate to join the power-play unit for the contest. Filppula's next opportunity to return comes Sunday when the team squares off against the Bruins.
