Flyers' Philippe Myers: Joining Team Canada
Myers will join Team Canada's roster for the IIHF World Championship.
Brandon Montour has been ruled out for the remainder of the World Championship tournament due to a lower-body injury, so Myers will take his spot on Canada's roster. The 22-year-old blueliner only notched two points in 21 appearances with the Flyers this campaign, but he'll almost certainly make the big club's roster out of training camp next season....

Flyers' Kirill Ustimenko: Inks entry-level deal
Ustimenko signed an entry-level contract with the Flyers on Wednesday.
Ustimenko posted impressive numbers in the MHL, the Russian junior league, last season, compiling a 30-12-3 record while registering a 1.78 GAA and .927 save percentage in 46 appearances. The 2017 third-round pick will almost certainly spend the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to have him on their radars at this point....

Flyers' Travis Sanheim: Burgeoning two-way defenseman
Sanheim posted nine goals and 35 points with 133 blocked shots and 45 hits in 82 games this season.
Playing his first full NHL season -- and appearing in 32 more games than his rookie campaign of 2017-18 -- Sanheim saw the biggest increases in goals, points and blocked shots. He just turned 23, so he might still have some more untapped offensive potential, but Sanheim is most valuable in leagues with blocks -- his 133 redirected shots ranked third on the team....

Flyers' Scott Laughton: Records career highs
Laughton posted career bests of 12 goals, 32 points, 53 PIM and 130 shots on net in 82 games this season.
The 24-year-old scored two more goals than last season but made an even more significant jump in the points category, scoring 12 more than 2017-18. He did that behind the most playing time and shot attempts of his career. Laughton will be a restricted free agent this summer. If he's back in Philadelphia, then owners can probably expect another 10-goal, 30-point campaign in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Ryan Hartman: Finishes 2018-19 with 26 points
Hartman posted 12 goals and 26 points with 74 PIM and 145 shots on net in 83 games this season.
Thanks to good timing with the trade between the Predators and Flyers, Hartman managed to play 83 games this season. Hartman averaged about 0.31 points per game with each team but posted a significantly worse plus-minus with the Flyers (minus-6 versus plus-7). He also racked up more PIM with Philadelphia, recording 30 PIM in just 19 games. Hartman will be a restricted free agent this offseason.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Travis Konecny: Limps to finish line
Konecny scored 24 goals and 49 points with a minus-4 rating, 182 shots on net and 40 PIM in 82 games during the 2018-19 season.
The 22-year-old managed to repeat his numbers from last season, which isn't a bad feat at all, but at his age, owners were probably hoping for a bigger jump. It didn't help that Konecny struggled down the stretch, scoring just two goals and three points in the final 10 games.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Michal Neuvirth: Experiences injury-filled season
Neuvirth went 1-4-1 with a 4.27 GAA and .859 save percentage during seven appearances, including six starts, during the 2018-19 season.
The veteran netminder dealt with multiple injuries and as a result, he barely played this past season. Neuvirth didn't make his season debut until Oct. 27 because of offseason hip surgery, but then after that loss, he didn't play again for six weeks due to an undisclosed ailment. Over the next month, he appeared in six games and then ended up on IR by the middle of January. Neuvirth will be a free agent this summer and will probably be in search of a new home.... See More ...

Flyers' Nolan Patrick: Scores 13 goals again
Patrick finished with 13 goals and 31 points with 115 shots on net in 72 games this season.
The 20-year-old's scoring numbers were nearly identical to his rookie season totals. In 2017-18, he scored 13 goals and 30 points with 127 shots on net. Patrick played one fewer game and averaged fewer shots per contest, but he still tallied 13 markers because of a 1.1 percent increase in his shooting percentage. Patrick also left something to be desired during the stretch run with one point in the final nine games.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Michael Raffl: Posts 18 points in 67 games
Raffl scored six goals and 18 points while posting a minus-1 rating, 32 PIM and 65 shots on net in 67 games this season.
The 30-year-old scored half as many goals in 2018-19 as he did the previous season, but owners should have expected at least a small decline in goals after he posted a higher than normal shooting percentage last year. Raffl somewhat made up for it, recording the most assists since 2015-16.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Radko Gudas: Posts nice season
Gudas scored four goals and 20 points with a plus-6 rating, 63 PIM, 136 shots on net, 255 hits and 133 blocks in 77 games this season.
Except for games played, Gudas didn't record any other career bests, but he was strong in every category. In his previous six seasons, Gudas averaged about three goals, 14 points, a plus-5 rating, 102 shots on net, 205 hits and 106 blocks, so he was above his average in all of those categories during 2018-19. The only disappointment Gudas experienced was in the PIM department. This season was the first time he averaged fewer than 1.0 PIM per contest.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' James van Riemsdyk: Posts 27 goals in 2018-19
Van Riemsdyk scored 27 goals and 48 points with a minus-10 rating in 66 games during the 2018-19 season.
All things considered, it was a strong first season back in Philadelphia for van Riemsdyk. While he did post more goals and points during his final season with the Maple Leafs in 2017-18, van Riemsdyk also managed to stay healthy that season, posting 36 goals and 54 points in 81 games. Van Riemsdyk averaged more points per game and posted a higher shooting percentage this season.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Brian Elliott: Turns in disappointing season
Elliott went 11-11-1 with a .907 save percentage, 2.96 save percentage and one shutout in 26 games during the 2018-19 season.
This season was a frustrating one for the veteran goaltender. He was average at best during the first month, and then Elliott suffered a lower-body injury that kept him sidelined for three months. By that time, Elliott had to compete with rookie Carter Hart and Cam Talbot for playing time. Before 2018-19, Elliott hadn't played in so few games since the 2012-13 season. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and more than likely, Elliott will have to find a new home.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Philip Varone: Eighteen-game pointless run
Varone finished the 2018-19 season with three goals, seven points, 34 shots on net, eight PIM and a minus-2 rating in 47 games.
Overall, that's not bad, but a vast majority of that production came before the middle of February. Varone went scoreless in his final 18 NHL games and only had 15 shots on net during that stretch. So while owners can be pleased Varone set career highs in the games played, goals and assists categories, it still feels as though he left something to be desired.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Felix Sandstrom: Victorious in AHL debut
Making his North American debut Friday, Sandstrom stopped 40 of 43 shots in AHL Lehigh Valley's 4-3 victory over Providence.
Sandstrom has seen his stock dip over the past couple seasons, but his first impression stateside was a strong one. Originally signed to an entry-level contract by the Flyers in March 2018, Sandstrom figures to serve as Lehigh Valley's starting goaltender for the 2019-20 campaign. With Carter Hart entrenched as the number one man in Philadelphia, the 22-year-old Sandstrom will be given plenty of time to marinate at the AHL level. The 2015 third-round (70th overall) selection remains a legitimate prospect.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Jakub Voracek: Reaches 20 goals again
Voracek registered 20 goals and 66 points with a minus-16 rating, 210 shots on net and 25 PIM in 78 games this season.
The 29-year-old has tallied 20 goals in six of the last seven seasons, including each of the last three, but after posting a career-high 65 assists in 2017-18, it was disappointing that Voracek was back under 70 points this season. He nearly had more assists last year than he had points in 2018-19. Voracek's plus-minus was one of his career worsts and he recorded his fewest PIM since 2013-14 as well.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Cam Talbot: Turns in very disappointing season
Talbot posted an 11-17-3 record with a 3.40 GAA and .892 save percentage in 35 games between the Oilers and Flyers during the 2018-19 season.
The Flyers acquired Talbot through a trade, but he only played in four games in Philadelphia, going 1-2-0 with a 3.70 GAA and .881 save percentage in those games. He will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Even though the trade didn't work out, owners should keep in mind Talbot possesses a respectable .912 career save percentage and could benefit from a change of scenery.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Robert Hagg: Turns in nice season
Hagg recorded five goals and 20 points with 63 PIM, 258 hits and 158 blocks during 82 games in 2018-19.
All of those marks were career highs for Hagg. He also posted a minus-3 rating and 86 shots on net. Hagg will always be best at providing owners hits and blocks, but still only 24 years old, he could continue to see his offensive numbers blossom in the coming years.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Andrew MacDonald: Dresses for only 47 games
MacDonald didn't score a goal and recorded nine points with a minus-5 rating and 18 PIM in 47 games this season.
Three of those assists actually came in his final 14 games, but MacDonald still wasn't consistently in the Flyers' lineup, especially down the stretch. He played just five games after March 1. MacDonald has one year remaining on his contract, and with a lot of young defensemen in Philadelphia, it will be interesting to see how much he plays next season.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Ivan Provorov: Posts minus-17 rating
Provorov scored seven goals and 26 points with a minus-16 rating in 82 games this season.
After a breakout 2017-18 season, these numbers were quite disappointing. Last season, Provorov recorded 17 goals and 41 points with a plus-17 rating. The decreased production was the result of both a shooting percentage cut almost in half and fewer shots on net. Provorov saw this decline in productivity despite more playing time this season.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Sean Couturier: Posts career-high 33 goals
Couturier finished the 2018-19 season with a career-high 33 goals and 76 points with a plus-2 rating and 223 shots on net in 80 games.
The 26-year-old was able to equal or best his offensive numbers from his breakout 2017-18 season. That should put to rest any doubt that Couturier's 40-point improvement from 2016-17 to last season wasn't for real. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Couturier's plus-minus. He posted a plus-34 rating last season while he was just a plus-2 player in 2018-19, but that was mostly because his team's goal differential was worst. All in all, Couturier experienced another very strong season, and he should be considered a top fantasy scorer moving forward.... See More ... See Less
