Flyers' Simmonds To Require Four Weeks Of Rehab

News: Wayne Simmonds will require four weeks of rehab for his fractured left leg, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds will miss the remainder of the season as a result of the injury, which he sustained in Wednesday's win over the Blackhawks. However, that recovery timetable should leave Simmonds with plenty of time to enter the 2015-16 campaign at full health.

Flyers' Simmonds Out For Season With Broken Leg

News: Wayne Simmonds will miss the rest of the regular season after suffering a fractured left leg in Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: It's not exactly clear how much time Wayne Simmonds will need to recover from his broken leg, but he won't play again during the regular season; and with the Flyers a long shot to make the playoffs, he probably will not appear in another game until the 2015-16 campaign. Assuming his recovery goes as planned though, Simmonds should be ready to go when training camp kicks off in September.

Flyers' Simmonds Injured, Out For Regular Season

News: Wayne Simmonds suffered a lower-body injury in Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks and will miss the remainder of the regular season.
Analysis: The nature and extent of Wayne Simmonds' setback are uncertain, but whatever injury he is dealing with will prevent him from playing again during the regular season. Simmonds scored his 28th goal of the season in Wednesday's game, but barring something unexpected, he won't be around to help during the fantasy playoffs.

Goal, Two Assists For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a goal, added two assists and racked up 14 PIM in Saturday's 7-2 rout of the visiting Red Wings. He now has 47 points in 70 games.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds stole Brayden Schenn's thunder in this one, as the first of Schenn's goals of his would-be hat trick was overturned and granted to Simmonds after further review. Owners were likely happy to see the 14 PIM as well, as he's been overly gentlemanly this season with a total of 64 PIM after committing 106 minutes worth of transgressions last year. Simmonds is also in danger of falling short of last year's career-high 60 points, so he'll need to net over a point per-game the rest of the way to amass the 14 points needed for a new personal best.

Flyers' Simmonds Scores Game-Winner

News: Wayne Simmonds scored the winner in the third period of Thursday's 3-1 victory over St. Louis.
Analysis: It's the 26th goal of the season for Wayne Simmonds, who is on pace to score more goals than last year. Still, his assist numbers are down from last season, perhaps a sign of the Flyers' overall struggles this season. Either way, he's been productive of late and warrants a start in nearly all formats.

Point Streak Up To Eight For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds extended his point streak to eight games with a goal in Sunday's win over the Capitals.
Analysis: It's the longest scoring streak of Wayne Simmonds' career. During that run, the winger has compiled six goals and four assists, putting him on track to finish with his top producing month of the season.

Flyers' Simmonds Notches Goal In Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds scored his 22nd goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Columbus.
Analysis: In the process, the winger extended his points streak to five games and remains a strong option in most formats.

Wayne Simmonds

Flyers' Simmonds Scores Twice In Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a pair of goals and had an assist in Friday's overtime loss to Columbus.
Analysis: Another monster outing from the Wayne Train, who was a part of all three of the Flyers' goals in the loss. Wayne Simmonds also scored his 12th power-play goal of the season Friday -- third most in the NHL. The 26-year-old now has five goals and nine points in his last seven games, putting him on track for a 30-goal, 55-point season. He's thriving on the second line and first power-play unit, so make sure he's in your lineup every game.

Wayne Simmonds

Flyers' Simmonds Sets Up Lone Goal

News: Wayne Simmonds set up the lone Flyers' goal in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has been on a roll of late, contributing three goals and six points in his last six games. He's got 19 goals on the season, including 11 power-play tallies and five game-winners, making him one of the deadliest scorers around. Contributing in the majority of fantasy categories, the 26-year-old should be owned in almost all formats.

Flyers' Simmonds Scores In Second Straight

News: Despite skating just 11:02, Wayne Simmonds potted a goal on the power play, chipped in an assist, went plus-1, picked up two PIM and laid four hits Thursday against Winnipeg.
Analysis: It's his second straight game with a goal following a 14-game slump in which he picked up just one goal and three assists. While that skid slowed Wayne Simmonds' pace, he should pick it back up, especially if the Flyers reward his resurgence with a return to his typical minutes.

Flyers' Simmonds Grabs Goal, Scores SO Winner

News: Wayne Simmonds netted a goal and provided the winning tally in a shootout victory over the Coyotes on Tuesday.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds' 17th strike of the season came on a first-period power play, giving him his first goa1 since Jan. 6. He's managed just four points in January and was demoted to the third line for Tuesday's game, but his strong outing may allow him to return to his usual role on the Flyers' second trio.

Flyers' Simmonds Grabs Two Points In Win

News: Wayne Simmonds dished out two assists in Monday's 7-3 win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has been particularly effective on the power play this season, notching his 16th point of the season with the man advantage. His even strength production is down from a season ago though, and it would take a big second half surge to match last year's 60-point output.

Simmonds Carries Flyers To Shootout Win

News: Wayne Simmonds scored the Flyers' lone regulation goal -- on a power play, naturally -- and tallied the game-winning shootout marker Tuesday against Ottawa. He also served five for fighting.
Analysis: Aside from Jakub Voracek's first-round shootout goal, Wayne Simmonds was the only man with a line on getting the puck past Sens netminder Craig Anderson. It's been a bit of a down year so far for Simmonds -- his scoring rate is down a few ticks and his PIM totals haven't really been there either until the last two games. But he's actually hitting at a career-high rate and remains a power-play ace, having tallied 15 of his 26 points with the extra man.

Wayne Simmonds

Simmonds Scores Lone Goal For Flyers

News: Wayne Simmonds' late-first-period power-play tally turned out to be the only time the Flyers got a puck past Andrei Vasilevskiy in his NHL debut Tuesday in a 3-1 loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: That's Wayne Simmonds' third straight game finding twine and his sixth goal in the last six games. Simmonds has been lighting up the scoresheet lately, and with the PIM he folds into his stat line, he should be starting in most formats.

Flyers' Simmonds Grabs Two Points Saturday

News: Wayne Simmonds lit the lamp and added a helper in Saturday's 5-1 beatdown of the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds was one of five Flyers to post multi-point performances in this one, and he now sits at 13 goals and eight assists on the season. Owners would undoubtedly like to see more in the PIM department from Simmonds, as he only has 23 thus far, but his continued offensive production likely helps lessens the blow.

Flyers' Simmonds Scores In Win

News: Wayne Simmonds scored his seventh power-play goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has scored four times in the last four games. He's 16th in the league in that category, and he's on pace to set a career high in goals scored. Even though his assists are down from previous years, Simmonds is a solid start in all formats.

Flyers' Simmonds Pots Two To Snap Scoring Drought

News: Wayne Simmonds potted two goals and chipped in four hits in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds gave the Flyers a sense of hope that their losing streak might come to an end by tallying the tying goal with 2.6 seconds remaining in regulation, extending the game to overtime. While Simmonds and his mates couldn't prevail in the shootout, it was good to see the winger get back on track after his offense had gone cold of late. He had previously provided only one point over his previous five games.

Flyers' Simmonds Grabs Seven PIM In Shootout Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds spent seven minutes in the sin bin in Monday's 1-0 shootout loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: The tall winger's ability to collects points and PIM make him a solid start in every league.

Wayne Simmonds

Flyers' Simmonds Bags Eighth Goal

News: Wayne Simmonds scored his first game-winner of the season in Saturday's 4-2 triumph over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds' second-period tally came via the power-play, where five of his eight goals have come this season. His scoring pace has slowed considerably since he busted out with seven points in his first four games to start the season, but he still produces points with enough frequency to warrant a roster spot in any format.

Flyers' Simmonds Nabs Goal, Assist In Win

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a power-play goal and assisted on another in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: He also collected two PIM and four hits and finished the night minus-1. While Wayne Simmonds should always be a start, he's especially valuable at home. He's got nine points in eight home games, and just two in his six road games.

Flyers' Simmonds Moves To Top Line

News: Wayne Simmonds took over the left wing spot for Chris VandeVelde, who was filling in for the injured Michael Raffl (lower body), Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: It took Flyers coach Craig Berube just one period to yank the leash on VandeVelde and replace him with Wayne Simmonds. While the left wing is not Simmonds' natural spot -- he said he hadn't played it since he was 12 -- he did manage to assist on Jakub Voracek's goal later in the game. The move to the top line could mean a points surge for the assistant captain, and fantasy owners should keep watch. He remains a start in all fantasy fixtures.

Flyers' Simmonds: A Point and Four PIM In Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds collected an assist and four PIM in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: He also improved to a plus-8 for the season, good enough for top 10 in the league. He'll be a definite start Tuesday when the Flyers take on the Oilers at home.

Flyers' Simmonds Snaps Scoring Drought

News: Wayne Simmonds tallied a goal in Thursday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: After compiling seven points in the Flyers' first four games of the season, Wayne Simmonds has cooled considerably since then, as Thursday's goal snapped a five-game pointless streak. He's still been firing off shots at a decent clip amid the dry spell, so it's probably just a matter of staying patient before a torrent of points starts coming again.

Flyers' Simmonds Produces Two More Points

News: Wayne Simmonds picked up a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.
Analysis: That makes five goals and seven points over the last three games for Wayne Simmonds, with four of them coming on the power play. That's a hell of a way to get started building on your first 60-point season.

Flyers' Simmonds: Two More Goals

News: Wayne Simmonds scored twice, including once on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: He ended last season on a hot streak and is clearly just continuing the strong play this year. He scored twice within 57 seconds on Thursday night and had a hat trick in Game 6 of the Flyers' first-round playoff series. The two goals Saturday came about 17 minutes apart, but the first one came 18 seconds after a teammate had scored. Use him well.
