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.

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.

Wayne Simmonds

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.

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).
