Flyers Place VandeVelde On IR

News: VandeChris Vande Velde was placed on injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: VandeChris Vande Velde was set to miss his third straight game with the lower-body injury and the Flyers needed to open up a roster spot for Michael Raffl (ankle), so it made sense for the team to move VandeVelde to IR. The forward hasn't resumed skating since suffering the injury last week, making it difficult to gauge when he might be able to return.

Flyers' VandeVelde Unlikely To Play

News: VandeChris Vande Velde (lower body) is unlikely to suit up for the Flyers' match-up with the Blue Jackets on Saturday.
Analysis: VandeChris Vande Velde is still recovering from a lower-body injury he suffered on Thursday and is still day-to-day. If he can't play on Saturday, Jason Akeson will likely slot back into the lineup.

Flyers' VandeVelde Suffers Lower-Body Injury

News: VandeChris Vande Velde suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday's game against the Wild and is day-to-day, Sam Carcidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: The origin of VandeChris Vande Velde's injury is unclear, but he only played 5:53 of ice time Thursday and could put his status in question for Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets. If he can't go, Jason Akeson would likely would likely slot back into the lineup

Flyers Give VandeVelde A Look On Top Line

News: VandeChris Vande Velde skated in place of Michael Raffl (lower body) on the top line at Wednesday's practice, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: The Flyers announced after practice that Raffl would miss the next six weeks with the injury, creating an opportunity for either VandeChris Vande Velde or another player to enjoy a cushy role next to Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek. With three points in eight games while playing primarily on the fourth line, VandeVelde hardly profiles as an ideal option to replace Raffl, so it seems doubtful that he'll end up sticking around on the top trio for the full duration of the winger's absence. Still, VandeVelde could make for a worthy add on speculation in the short-term if he ends up taking advantage of the top-line chance.

Flyers Recall VandeVelde From AHL

News: The Flyers recalled VandeChris Vande Velde fom AHL Lehigh Valley on Wednesday.

Flyers Re-Sign VandeVelde

Analysis: VandeChris Vande Velde appeared in 18 games for the Flyers last season, registering one point and 16 penalty minutes. He's unlikely to make much of an impact for the parent club in 2014-15, with most of his action set to come at AHL Adirondack.

Flyers' VandeVelde Shipped To Minors

News: VandeChris Vande Velde was returned to AHL Adirondack on Friday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: With Zac Rinaldo due to return in the Flyers' next game Saturday, the team had no need to keep VandeChris Vande Velde with the parent club any longer. He appeared in just one game during his brief stay with the Flyers, logging 3:53 of ice time in Tuesday's loss to the Devils.

Flyers Recall VandeVelde

News: VandeChris Vande Velde was recalled from AHL Adirondack on Tuesday.

Flyers Waive VandeVelde

News: The Flyers placed VandeChris Vande Velde on waivers Wednesday.
Analysis: The center recorded just one assist in 17 games with the Flyers, and will be reassigned to AHL Adirondack when he clears waivers. The team will presumably use his open roster spot to activate Zac Rinaldo (ankle) off IR.

Flyers Ink VandeVelde To One-Year Deal

News: VandeChris Vande Velde signed a one-year, $550,000 deal with the Flyers on Thursday, Sarah Baicker of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: VandeChris Vande Velde, who had previously been signed to a minor-league contract with AHL Adirondack, will join the Flyers on Thursday and could play if needed. He'll likely see most of his duty on the third or fourth line and doesn't project to be much of a contributor in most fantasy leagues.

Flyers Assign VandeVelde To AHL

News: VandeChris Vande Velde was assigned to AHL Adirondack on Saturday.
