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.

Flyers' Simmonds Picks Up Three Points

News: Wayne Simmonds bounced back from Wednesday's quiet season debut to rack up two goals, an assist and a plus-2 rating Thursday in a loss to the Devils.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds didn't even put a puck on goal Wednesday, but apparently got a lot better overnight. He led the Flyers on a mad charge back from a 3-0 deficit, with his two goals bringing the score to 3-2 and then 3-3, and then he collected the primary assist on Vinny Lecavalier's goal, which tied the game at 4-4. Considering Simmonds' impressive development and heavy power-play usage, it's not at all unreasonable to think he can come close to matching last year's 60-point, 106-PIM campaign.

Flyers' Simmonds To Play Wednesday

News: Wayne Simmonds (lower body) was on the ice for morning skate and has been given clearance to play in Wednesday's opener against the Bruins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Considered probable heading into Wednesday, Wayne Simmonds confirmed his availability by taking part in morning skate in full capacity. He had confined to a walking boot briefly last week upon injuring his left foot, but he's not expected to have any limitations against the Bruins.

Flyers' Simmonds On Track To Play Wednesday

News: Wayne Simmonds (lower body) hopes to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Bruins, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has been slowed by an injury the last few days, but he was able to practice both Monday and Tuesday, so consider him on track to play Wednesday. A final decision on Simmonds' status will be announced sometime prior to game time.

Flyers' Simmonds Practices

News: Wayne Simmonds (lower body) practiced with the team Monday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds was wearing extra padding on both skates, and while the exact nature of his injury is still unknown, it's encouraging that he was back at practice. There should be an update on his condition prior to the team's season opener Wednesday against the Bruins.

Flyers' Simmonds Questionable For Opener

News: Wayne Simmonds' (lower body) availability for Wednesday's regular season opener is "up in the air," Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: It's unclear when Wayne Simmonds' injury occurred or where it originated, but he couldn't practice Thursday because of it. He led the team in goals last season, and should be in line to contend for that distinction again, though the injury could keep him out of the start of the season.

Flyers' Simmonds Dealing With Lower Body Injury

News: Simmons is dealing with a lower body injury and is considered day-to-day.
Analysis: The extent of Wayne Simmonds' setback is uncertain, but it prevented him from taking the ice Thursday, according to CSN's Tim Panaccio. It remains to be seen if the setback will threaten Simmonds' availability for the Flyers' season opener, but he will at least be held out of Thursday's preseason finale.

Flyers' Simmonds Notches Goal In Preseason Win

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has found himself with two new linemates this season, and this preseason chemistry, albeit against the Rangers' B team, is encouraging. Simmonds' 60 points last season should place in the early rounds of most drafts.

Simmonds' Hat Trick Carries Flyers In Game 6

News: Wayne Simmonds scored three goals -- two on the power play -- and racked up 12 PIM in Tuesday's Game 6 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: That's one heck of a fantasy outing for Wayne Simmonds, and he did it despite spending just 12:50 on the ice. Simmonds had managed just a goal and an assist in the series' first five games, but he took a series-high six shots in this one in what was certainly his most involved offensive performance.

Flyers' Simmonds Scores Twice

News: Wayne Simmonds notched two goals against the Hurricanes to end the regular season on Sunday.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds finishes with 29 goals and 60 points, both career highs. He also had 15 power-play goals and 106 penalty minutes, making Simmonds a real impressive fantasy performer this year.

Simmonds Manages Goal In Flyers' Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a goal, but finished minus-2 in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds was blanked in his previous three games, but has been a major offensive contributor in the Flyers' push for the playoffs. He scored twice against Buffalo in their last matchup, and looks to be a solid start on Sunday.

Flyers' Simmonds Pots Goal In Win

News: Wayne Simmonds broke a two-game pointless streak with a goal in Friday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds hits, fights, and scores -- he now has 25 goals on the season. With the Flyers fighting to maintain playoff status, Simmonds should be a regular in your lineup.

Simmonds' Two Goals Lift Flyers

News: Wayne Simmonds scored two goals -- one on the power play -- went plus-2, and collected two PIM in Thursday's 4-2 win over Dallas.
Analysis: You can't hold the guy down for long -- after one scoreless game, he got right back at it in this one. Wayne Simmonds has been operating at a point-per-game pace over his last 14 games, dating back to the beginning of February.

No Points, Many PIM For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds collected seven PIM but was held pointless Tuesday in the 3-2 overtime win against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds and his owners would've surely loved a three-game points streak, but, alas, it was not to be. Still, it's hard to be disappointed in a player who's producing both points (46th in the league) and PIM (18th in the league).

Flyers' Simmonds Sets Career-High In Points

News: Wayne Simmonds scored two power-play goals, and added an even-strength assist in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh. He now has a career-high 50 points this season.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds also has 12 power-play goals this season, which is tied for third in the NHL. The 25-year-old has 21 goals and 29 assists in 67 games, putting him on pace for a 60-point season. He may go through brief dry spells, but Simmonds has quietly emerged as a lethal threat in fantasy hockey.

Flyers' Simmonds: PIM And Point In Win

News: Wayne Simmonds spent four minutes in the sin bin and collected an assist in Wednesday's 6-4 win over Washington.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has added some moderate production over the last few games, a nice bonus for owners who use him regularly. His stat line for the season paints the picture of a solid season: top-50 in points and goals, and 20th in PIM. As long as the Flyers keep fighting for a playoff spot, Simmonds will continue to be a target for opposing enforcers, and that means more PIM for owners.

Flyers' Simmonds Picks Up Two Points

News: Wayne Simmonds contributed a goal and assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds beat goalie Henrik Lundqvist with a forehand shot with seven minutes left in the second period, breaking a 2-2 tie and producing a game-winning goal. With 45 points in 61 games, Simmonds is well on his way to set a career-high mark for points in a season.

Flyers' Simmonds: Two Points End Five-Game Drought

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Kings. It was his 100th goal of his career.
Analysis: The points were his first in five games after that month-long tear he'd been on. And he's still close to a 60-point pace. Add in his hits and PIM, and you have the kind of multi-category stud that helps you win championships.

Scoring Streak Continues For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds potted his 17th goal of the season in Monday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has been on an absolute tear since mid-December, tallying 11 goals and 10 assists in a span of just 17 games. He should be owned in all but the shallowest of leagues while he's on this sort of scoring binge.

Flyers' Simmonds Rips Off Three Points

News: Wayne Simmonds scored a game-tying power-play goal late in the third period and had the primary assist on both of the Flyers' other goals in Thursday's shootout loss to Nashville.
Analysis: About the only mark on Wayne Simmonds for the night is that he was stopped in the seventh and final shootout round, which gave Nashville's Roman Josi the opportunity to win it -- and he did. Nonetheless, Simmonds has five points in his last two games, with three of those coming on the power play -- just what the feisty winger's fantasy owners have been looking for.

Flyers' Simmonds Popping On Power Play

News: Wayne Simmonds dished out a pair of power-play assists in Tuesday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Both were primary assists, and Wayne Simmonds deserved them well. First he won a puck battle in front of the net to fire a perfect pass across the slot to Jakub Voracek for a goal, then he fed Scott Hartnell through a tight window in the slot for a late-third-period go-ahead tally. With 32 points -- 13 on the power play -- and 77 PIM, Simmonds has been a nicely well-rounded fantasy asset, as usual.

Simmonds Notches Assist In Flyers' Win

News: Wayne Simmonds assisted on the game-winning goal Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime win over the Devils.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has 14 points (nine goals, five assists) in his last 10 games, and is a key part of this rejuvenated Flyers' offense. That said, he faces a Montreal team Wednesday that allows the fourth fewest goals per game. Simmonds has yet to record a point against the Canadiens this season, so start him with caution.

Simmonds' PPG Helps Flyers Edge Coyotes

News: Wayne Simmonds collected his seventh power-play goal of the season Saturday as the Flyers stormed back from a two-goal deficit to beat Phoenix, 5-3.
Analysis: His current tear (9-4-13 in nine games) is enough to commend him in most standard fantasy formats. And if your league features a penalty-minutes category, he's even more valuable; his 67 PIM place him 18th in the NHL in that category.

Another Two-Goal Night For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds scored two power-play goals on six shots in Saturday's 4-3 win at Edmonton.
Analysis: This is his third straight two-goal contest, bringing his season ledger to 12-12-24 in 38 starts. He's made five straight score sheets and is among the hottest skaters in the league right now.
