04/20/2013 23:04 Simmonds' hat trick, assist lift Flyers over Hurricanes
Wayne Simmonds got his first career hat trick and added an assist to lead the Philadelphia Flyers in a 5-3 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night in a matchup of teams recently eliminated from playoff contention.
Wayne Simmonds played a full 82-game season for the Flyers in 2011 and produced a great balance of points and PIMs with 49 and 114, respectively, after coming over from Los Angeles in the Mike Richards trade. The 6-foot-2 winger is hoping to improve upon last season's career year of 28 goals if he can stay healthy. Simmonds has more value in leagues that reward penalty minutes and, with almost 200 shots on goal last year, he's worth remembering in most leagues, whether they count penalty minutes or not.
