Top Flyers News

  • Flyers' Connor Bunnaman: Drops to bus league

    Bunnaman was reassigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    Bunnaman has drawn into three straight games with the Flyers, so he could be back with the big club prior to Saturday's game versus the Sabres. He's gone scoreless through eight top-level appearances this year.

  • Flyers' Claude Giroux: Expected to play Saturday

    Giroux (wrist) is expected to participate in Saturday's game against Buffalo, Adam Kimelman of NHL.com reports.

    Giroux has averaged 20:17 of ice time -- 3:08 during the power play -- and recorded seven points over his last 10 appearances. He missed three games in January while in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. The 34-year-old has not missed any contests while recovering from the wrist injury he suffered Thursday.

  • Flyers' Jackson Cates: Added to taxi squad

    Cates was promoted to the taxi squad from AHL Lehigh Valley on Friday.

    The Flyers are dealing with a plethora of injuries and illnesses up front, so Cates could draw into the lineup as soon as Saturday versus the Sabres. He's picked up one goal through seven top-level appearances this year.

  • Flyers' Wade Allison: Joins taxi squad

    Allison (elbow) was promoted from AHL Lehigh Valley to the taxi squad Friday.

    Allison was dealing with an elbow injury in late December, but his promotion to the taxi squad suggests he's no longer hampered by that issue. Allison has yet to crack the Flyers' lineup this season, but he was pretty productive in limited action with the big club last year, picking up four goals and seven points through 14 appearances.

  • Flyers' Joel Farabee: Expected to miss four weeks

    Farabee has been placed on injured reserve and is expected to miss up to four weeks with an upper-body injury.

    Farabee, who's picked up 11 goals and 18 points through 33 contests this season, will likely be sidelined until late February with his upper-body injury. With Farabee facing an extended absence, look for Oskar Lindblom to take on an expanded role for the foreseeable future.

  • Flyers' Kevin Hayes: Lands on IR

    Hayes (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Hayes is expected to be sidelined for at least three weeks after undergoing a procedure on his abductor region Tuesday, so this move was expected. Scott Laughton and Morgan Frost will both likely take on increased roles until Hayes, who's picked up nine points through 20 contests this campaign, is ready to return.

  • Flyers' Carter Hart: Needs more support

    Hart made 27 saves in a 2-1 loss to Columbus on Thursday.

    Hart was the Flyers' top penalty killer, turning the Jackets away on all three power plays. But he can't do it alone. The Flyers are the first team in NHL history to lose 10 in a row twice in the first 40 games. Hart is a tough activation in any format.

  • Flyers' Claude Giroux: Suffers late injury

    Giroux appeared to injure his wrist late in the third period of Thursday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Charlie O'Connor of The Athletic reports.

    Giroux didn't participate in media availability after the game, which usually indicates a player is being tended to for an injury. More information should be known prior to Saturday's game versus the Sabres. Giroux had four shots on goal and won 13 of 20 faceoffs in 21:00 of ice time Thursday.

  • Flyers' Carter Hart: On track to start

    Per Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia, Hart was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll start between the pipes in Thursday's home game versus Columbus.

    Hart has struggled mightily in the month of January, suffering five straight losses while posting a sub-par 3.65 GAA and .884 save percentage. The 23-year-old netminder will try to snap his personal six-game losing streak dating back to mid-December in a favorable home matchup with a Blue Jackets team that's 6-12-0 on the road this year.

  • Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Nets goal in loss

    Van Riemsdyk tallied a goal during Tuesday's shootout loss to the Islanders.

    Van Riemsdyk's goal gives him 10 on the season, and 16 points in 39 contests. His scoring is down, as he's on pace for just 33 points. After five seasons of at least 40 points, he's on pace for his lowest output since he recorded 29 points in 40 games back in 2015-16.

  • Flyers' Claude Giroux: Two points in Tuesday's loss

    Giroux scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders.

    His tally early in the third period gave the Flyers a 3-2 lead and a brief hope they might end their current losing streak, but it wasn't to be. Giroux snapped a personal three-game point drought with the performance, and on the season the veteran has 12 goals and 31 points in 36 contests.

  • Flyers' Carter Hart: Falls in shootout to Isles

    Hart turned aside 28 shots in regulation and overtime and eight of nine shootout attempts in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Islanders.

    After the two teams traded goals in each period during the first 60 minutes and settled nothing in overtime, Hart and Semyon Varlamov geared up for an epic shootout that saw the two goalies deny 17 straight shooters before Oliver Wahlstrom finally ended things. There may have been nothing Hart could do to earn a win once time expired in OT, though -- the Flyers are a jaw-dropping 0-for-16 on attempts this season while losing all four of their shootouts. The 23-year-old netminder is 0-4-2 in his last six starts with a 3.32 GAA and .897 save percentage as Philadelphia continues to sink in the standings.

  • Flyers' Carter Hart: In goal Tuesday

    Hart will guard the home goal Tuesday versus the Islanders, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Hart enters Tuesday on a five-game losing streak, during which he's posted a 3.45 GAA and an .896 save percentage. While the 23-year-old hasn't been very effective lately, he faces an Islanders team that has averaged just 2.29 goals per game this season, giving Hart a good chance to get back on track.

  • Flyers' Kevin Hayes: Out 3-4 weeks

    Hayes underwent a procedure on his adductor region Tuesday and will miss at least the next three weeks.

    Hayes underwent core-muscle surgery last offseason and this procedure may be a result of that nagging issue. He'll now be out until at least early February after already missing 18 games this season. The veteran forward is averaging 15:51 of ice time with nine points through 20 games this season.

  • Flyers' Jackson Cates: Sent to AHL

    Cates was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley from the taxi squad Tuesday.

    Cates has logged six points over 20 appearances with AHL Lehigh Valley this season. He has averaged 8:29 of ice time over five NHL performances in 2021-22. The 24-year-old lit the lamp once in his first NHL game of the season and has not recorded an NHL point since.

  • Flyers' Max Willman: Added to active roster

    Willman was promoted from AHL Lehigh Valley to the active roster Tuesday.

    Although Willman's been added to the active roster, at this point it isn't clear if he'll be in the lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Islanders. Willman's notched three points through 19 top-level appearances this season.
