Flyers' Alex Lyon: Starting Saturday
Lyon will patrol the crease during Saturday's road game versus the Capitals, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Lyon was sharp in his last start Monday against the Penguins, stopping 35 of 37 shots en route to a blowout 7-2 victory. The 28-year-old netminder will attempt to secure his second win of the season in a road matchup with a Washington team that's won four of its last six games.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Brian Elliott: Gets starting nod Friday
Elliott will be between the pipes against the Capitals on the road Friday, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Elliott is currently bogged down in a three-game losing streak during which he registered a disastrous 5.11 GAA and .805 save percentage. The 36-year-old veteran will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and his 13-9-2 record and 3.15 GAA in 28 games this year could see the Flyers go in a different direction behind Carter Hart (knee) heading into the 2021-22 campaign....

Flyers' Cam York: Will play Friday
York will make his NHL debut Friday, including logging minutes on the power play, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports
York has quickly moved up the ranks after completing his collegiate season with the University of Michigan. With the Wolverines, the 20-year-old blueliner garnered 36 points in 54 career contests. Following the conclusion of the 2020-21 campaign, York joined AHL Lehigh Valley and racked up five points in six games, earning him a promotion to the NHL. Selected by the Flyers with the 14th overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, York could be in the mix for a regular spot on the 23-man roster next year and figures to be a decent mid-range fantasy option....

Flyers' Cam York: Rises to taxi squad
York was promoted to Philadelphia's taxi squad Thursday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
York is expected to make his NHL debut before the Flyers' season comes to a close Monday versus New Jersey. The 14th overall pick from the 2019 NHL Entry Draft has racked up five points in six AHL appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Felix Sandstrom: Added to taxi squad
Sandstrom was promoted to the taxi squad Thursday, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Sandstrom will likely serve as an emergency depth option for the Flyers' final three games of the season, though with no playoffs in their future, the club could opt to give the 24-year-old netminder his NHL debut. Sandstrom is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this offseason, and giving him a chance to play at the NHL level could help the organization determine whether to stick with him for another year or two....

Flyers' Felix Sandstrom: Returns to bus league
The Flyers reassigned Sandstrom to AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.
Sandstrom handled No. 3 duties with Carter Hart (knee) sidelined since Monday, but he'll return to the minors. Sandstrom will return to the AHL where he's gone 3-3-2 along with a 3.51 GAA and .893 save percentage in eight appearances this campaign.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Shayne Gostisbehere: Assessed two-game suspension
Gostisbehere was issued a two-game suspension by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for boarding the Penguins' Mark Friedman on Tuesday.
Gostisbehere cross-checked Friedman after Friedman scored an empty-net goal, sending him into the boards at speed. Assuming Gostisbehere sits out the next two games Friday and Saturday, he'll be eligible to return Monday against visiting New Jersey for Philadelphia's final game of the season.... See More ...

Flyers' Elliot Desnoyers: Signs entry-level contract
Desnoyers signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Flyers on Wednesday. The deal will begin with the 2021-22 season.
The Flyers selected Desnoyers in the fifth round of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the 2020-21 campaign with the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL, racking up 21 goals and 49 points in 37 contests. The 19-year-old winger will likely begin the 2021-22 season with AHL Lehigh Valley.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Wade Allison: Provides first helper
Allison managed an assist and six hits in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Allison set up Justin Braun for the Flyers' first goal of the game. The 23-year-old Allison has three points, 19 shots on goal and 26 hits in his first 11 NHL games. The second-round pick from 2016 will likely compete for a full-time gig in 2021-22 after spending a large portion of this season out with an ankle injury.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Travis Sanheim: Finds helper in loss
Sanheim posted an assist, five shots on goal and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Sanheim set up Sean Couturier for a second-period tally that cut the Penguins' lead to 3-2 at the time. The 25-year-old Sanheim has assists in consecutive games. He's at 15 points, 96 shots on net, 71 blocked shots and a minus-19 rating in 52 appearances. The Manitoba native has mainly worked in the Flyers' top six, although he remains more of a defensive presence than a scoring threat.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Shayne Gostisbehere: Distributes assist in loss
Gostisbehere recorded an assist, two hits and two PIM in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Gostisbehere had the secondary helper on a Travis Konecny goal in the third period. The 28-year-old Gostisbehere has enjoyed a bit of a bounce-back year with 20 points through 40 contests. He also carries a minus-5 rating with 84 shots on net and 45 blocked shots this season. His appeal in fantasy comes from his power-play role, where he's earned nine of his points.... See More ...

Flyers' Ivan Provorov: Picks up assist Tuesday
Provorov recorded an assist, six shots on goal and six blocked shots in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Provorov was steady at both ends of the rink, but that couldn't be said for many of his Flyers teammates. The Russian blueliner has 26 points, 123 shots, 100 blocks and a plus-3 rating through 53 appearances this season. While it's been a difficult year on offense for the 24-year-old, he's remained one of the NHL's better shot-blockers -- he's reached triple-digits in that category in all five of his campaigns.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Claude Giroux: Sets up pair of tallies
Giroux recorded two assists in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Giroux helped out on goals by Sean Couturier and Travis Konecny in the contest. The 33-year-old Giroux is up to 41 points, 114 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 51 contests this year. He continues to work in a top-line role, and his offense is worthy of such usage.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Justin Braun: Puts away first goal
Braun scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Braun has found very little success in the offensive zone this season. The 34-year-old defenseman has just five points, 53 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating in 50 contests. He's added 73 hits and 64 blocked shots, but Braun has little fantasy value with such meager offense.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Travis Konecny: Credited with goal Tuesday
Konecny scored a goal on four shots, doled out two hits and added two PIM in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Konecny was credited with the Flyers' third goal, which appeared to have bounced off a skate in front of the net. The 24-year-old winger has 11 tallies, 33 points, 98 shots on net, 51 hits and 26 PIM through 47 contests, mainly in a top-six role.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Sean Couturier: Lights lamp Tuesday
Couturier scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins.
Couturier has been automatic lately with three goals and four helpers in his last eight outings. The top-line center is up to 16 goals, 38 points, 110 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 42 contests. He's maintained a relatively similar scoring pace over the past three campaigns.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Brian Elliott: Yields half-dozen goals
Elliott gave up six goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 7-3 loss to the Penguins. The seventh goal was an empty-netter.
Elliott had another poor outing -- he's given up 15 goals in his last three games, all losses. The 36-year-old dropped to 13-9-2 with a 3.15 GAA and an .886 save percentage in 28 outings. Elliott remains a risky fantasy play should he draw a start Friday or Saturday versus the Capitals.... See More ... See Less
Flyers' Olle Lycksell: Pens entry-level deal
Lycksell signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Flyers on Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
Lycksell's contract begins in the 2021-22 season. The Swedish right wing had 21 points in 46 contests with Farjestad BK of the SHL in 2020-21. Lycksell was selected in the sixth round of the 2017 draft.... See More ... See Less
