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.

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.

Wayne Simmonds, RW, PHI Scoring Streak Continues For Flyers' Simmonds

Wayne Simmonds

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.

Wayne Simmonds

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.

Wayne Simmonds, RW, PHI Simmonds' PPG Helps Flyers Edge Coyotes

Wayne Simmonds

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.

Wayne Simmonds, RW, PHI Another Two-Goal Night For Flyers' Simmonds

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.

12/23/2013

Wayne Simmonds, RW, PHI Two More Goals For Flyers' Simmonds

Wayne Simmonds

Two More Goals For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds lit the lamp twice, collected two PIM, and added an assist Monday in the Flyers' 4-1 over Minnesota.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has been rewarding owners generously during the holiday season. Typically known for his PIM-prowess, he's added seven points (five goals) in his last four games. Owners will hope his generosity continues when he laces up Saturday against Edmonton.

Wayne Simmonds

Simmonds Scores Twice In Flyers' Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds scored two goals Saturday as the Flyers fell 6-3 to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds also spent two minutes in the sin bin -- he's among the league leaders in that category. While he's not a consistent points-getter, he has collected points in three straight games. He'll try to make it four Monday against a stingy Minnesota defense.

Flyers' Simmonds Scores In Shootout Loss

News: Wayne Simmonds recorded a power-play goal Friday in the Flyers' 3-2 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has rewarded fantasy owners with three points in three straight contests this week. While he hasn't been as diligent about tallying PIMs as of late, he still ranks 32nd in the league in that category. If the Flyers can maintain their offensive hot streak, Simmonds and his fantasy owners could continue to be benefactors.

Wayne Simmonds

Flyers' Simmonds Assists Twice

News: Wayne Simmonds assisted on both Flyers goals -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds entered the game with just a goal and an assist in 10 contests, and promptly doubled his season point total, including collecting his first power-play assist of the season. This is just one game, but it's certainly a big positive for Simmonds' fantasy owners to see him put up his first multi-point effort of the year.

Flyers' Simmonds Finally Breaks Through

News: Wayne Simmonds netted his first goal of the year Thursday, a power-play marker in the second period that accounted for the Flyers' lone goal in a 4-1 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds only has two points through eight games, and despite the goal, he managed to finish the night minus-4 and collected zero PIM. His stats have been unimpressive thus far, especially for a player who typically supplements his offensive production with some sin-bin stats.

Flyers Move Simmonds Up To Top Line

News: New coach Craig Berube will move Wayne Simmonds up to the top line for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Though he went scoreless during the team's 0-3 start, Wayne Simmonds has been active, with eight hits and six shots on goal over three games, and could benefit from a nice bump in his offensive output alongside Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell. Simmonds will probably need to continue to play at a high level right away in order to stay on the top line, as Berube's arrangements figure to remain flexible initially until he narrows in on his optimal lineup.

Flyers' Simmonds (Flu) To Play Thursday

News: Wayne Simmonds (flu) returned to practice Wednesday and will play in Thursday's exhibition against the Devils, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Wayne Simmonds has been battling the flu since last week and lost about six pounds due to the sickness. However, after getting in some good skating sessions the last two days, he'll return to the lineup Thursday, joining a line with Vincent Lecavalier and Brayden Schenn.

Simmonds To Miss Upcoming Preseason Games

News: Wayne Simmonds will not travel to Ontario for the Flyers upcoming preseason games, reports Frank Seravalli of Philly.com.
Analysis: This shouldn't be cause for concern for fantasy owners--he's healthy. The Flyers are likely trying to avoid a racial incident similar to one that occurred a few years back, when a rowdy fan tossed a banana peel onto the ice to harass Wayne Simmonds. The 25-year-old forward will remain in Philadelphia and play in a split-squad game against the Capitals.

Wayne Simmonds

First NHL Hat Trick For Flyers' Simmonds

News: Wayne Simmonds had a huge fantasy night Saturday, notching his first NHL hat trick and adding an assist in a 5-3 victory over Carolina.
Analysis: He has struggled in April with just three points in the nine games before Saturday. But he now has six points (three goals, three assists) in his last four games, and could provide you with a late-season boost.
