Flyers Reassign Laughton

News: The Flyers reassigned Scott Laughton to AHL Lehigh Valley on Saturday, NHL.com's Adam Kimelman reports.
Analysis: With Michael Raffl (pneumonia) ready to return to game action and with Ryan White playing capably, the Flyers no longer needed the depth Scott Laughton provided at forward. Laughton tallied six points through 31 games, production that didn't make much of an argument for sticking around with the parent club.

Analysis: Scott Laughton will center a second line of Ryan White and Wayne Simmonds in his return from a seven-game absence. He's been practicing fully since Tuesday and shouldn't face any limitations in his first game back.

Flyers' Laughton Passes Concussion Test

News: Scott Laughton passed his concussion test Sunday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton didn't practice with the team Sunday, but did skate on his own following practice. The fact that he passed his concussion test is a good sign, and with the team's next game not until Thursday, it seems likely he will be ready to play barring a setback.

Flyers' Laughton Practices, But Remains Out

News: Scott Laughton (concussion) took part in Friday's practice, but will remain out of the lineup Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton has demonstrated incremental progress by getting on the ice the last two days, but the Flyers aren't quite ready to clear him for full-contact action just yet. If he continues to recover well over the weekend, Laughton will have a realistic chance at playing next Thursday against the Islanders.

Flyers' Laughton Starting To Notice Progress

News: Scott Laughton (upper body) was able to get in a skate Wednesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: General manager Ron Hextall suggested that Scott Laughton is starting to make progress after noticing limited healing upon suffering the injury two weeks ago. Even so, Laughton hasn't resumed practicing with the team just yet, putting a return to action on the back burner for now.

Flyers Place Laughton (Upper Body) On IR

News: Scott Laughton (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: With Scott Laughton not ready to play Tuesday against the Penguins and the Flyers in need of an extra defenseman, the center was moved to IR to create roster room. The team seems to be considering Laughton as day-to-day, so there's a chance he could be ready to go for the Flyers' first game out of the All-Star break.

News: Scott Laughton (upper body) will not play Saturday against Buffalo, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

News: Scott Laughton (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Canucks, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton is dealing with a suspected concussion after taking a hit from the Capitals' Matt Nisakenn on Wednesday. The Flyers are considering him day-to-day for now, but he'll need to get back on the ice in some capacity before his return can viewed as forthcoming.

News: Scott Laughton (lower body) will be fine to play Tuesday against the Senators, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton missed Saturday's game because of the injury, which evidently occurred in Friday's game against the Hurricanes. He appears ready to return to the lineup and his post centering the second line Tuesday.

Flyers' Laughton (Undisclosed) To Sit Saturday

News: Scott Laughton will miss Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury, Dave Isaac of the South Jersey Courier-Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Craig Berube said that the Flyers would reevaluate Scott Laughton on Sunday, after he evidently sustained some sort of injury during Friday's loss to the Hurricanes. Either Sean Couturier or Vincent Lecavalier figures to move up to the second-line center spot in his stead.

Flyers' Laughton Scores Second NHL Goal

News: Scott Laughton scored a goal and finished plus-3 in the offensive onslaught in Saturday's 7-4 win over Toronto.
Analysis: The 20-year-old center doesn't figure into many lineups right now, but he's a solid stash in keeper leagues.

Flyers' Laughton Scores First NHL Goal

News: Scott Laughton scored his first career NHL goal and chipped in an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Hurricanes.

First NHL Point For Flyers' Laughton

News: Scott Laughton tallied his first point in the NHL on Tuesday, assisting on Sean Couturier's first-period power-play goal in a 2-1 loss to San Jose.
Analysis: While Scott Laughton has just one point in his first 13 NHL games, he has great pedigree as the Flyers' first-round pick (No. 20 overall) in 2012, and he compiled 11 points in 13 AHL games before being called up this year.

Scott Laughton

Flyers Recall Laughton

News: Scott Laughton was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday.
Analysis: With Claude Giroux (lower body) expected to miss at least the next two games, Scott Laughton, one of the Flyers' top forward prospects, will join the big club to give the team some more offensive firepower. The 20-year-old has six goals and 11 points over 13 games with Lehigh Valley.

Scott Laughton

Flyers' Laughton Sent To AHL Lehigh Valley

News: Scott Laughton was assigned to AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Analysis: The former first-round pick had a strong preseason thus far, but his performance was not enough to make the final roster. Scott Laughton is held in high regard as a prospect in the Flyers' system, and he's still young enough to stay in the AHL for the year to develop his skills further. Barring injury, he won't see much playing time in the NHL this year since the Flyers seem rather settled at center, but keeper league owners should still give him a look.

Flyers Laughton Tallies Three Points

News: Scott Laughton scored and collected two assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Devils.
Analysis: Scott Laughton is trying to cement a spot on the NHL roster, and performances like this certainly help. At 20, he's still young enough for the Flyers to stash him in the AHL for a development season. The former first-round pick is a natural center, and the Flyers are currently overstaffed at that position. For owners in keeper leagues, he's worth a look. Owners in other formats should let the preseason progress before making any moves.

Laughton Scores Two In Win

News: Scott Laughton potted two goals Saturday en route to OHL Oshawa's 4-2 win over Owen Sound.
Analysis: Scott Laughton now has 35 points -- 17 goals, 18 assists -- in just 19 games. He's on a freakish tear at the junior level, and is worth a look in dynasty leagues even if he doesn't make a return to the Flyers' NHL roster this season.

Flyers Send Laughton To Juniors

News: Scott Laughton was assigned to OHL Oshawa by the Flyers on Thursday, the Philadelphia Daily News' Frank Seravalli reports.
Analysis: Scott Laughton seemed to have surprisingly made the opening day roster for the Flyers at 19 years old. It's uncertain whether he'll return to the majors at some point, but for now, the promising young center will work on developing in juniors.

9/29/2013

Scott Laughton

Flyers' Laughton Wins Roster Spot

News: Scott Laughton has secured an Opening Night roster spot with the Flyers, CSN Philadelphia reports.
Analysis: With the placement of veteran winger Adam Hall on waivers Saturday, the Flyers unofficially committed to playing the 19-year-old Scott Laughton for at least nine games, as his junior eligibility won't kick in until after that time. The Flyers would then have to decide whether to send Laughton to OHL Oshawa or keep him with the big club, but if he continues to shine as he did in the final two preseason games, the decision will be an easy one. Laughton isn't expected to be a major contributor for the Flyers this season, but should become a top-six player in due time.

Scott Laughton

Laughton In Contention For Roster Spot

News: Scott Laughton is still in contention for one of the Flyers' two remaining forward spots, reports The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Analysis: Scott Laughton is competing against Michael Raffl, an offensively savvy European import, and Chris VandeVelde, a 26-year-old who's spent most of his career in the AHL. The Flyers need a left winger, a more natural position for Raffl, so the battle is really to see whether VandeVelde or Laughton will be a better backup center. With Laughton still just 19, the Flyers may decide that VandeVelde is a less risky choice. If you're looking at Laughton in a dynasty league, stay tuned.

Flyers' Laughton Likely A Junior

News: Scott Laughton, who played five games for the Flyers last season, is expected to return to his junior team this coming season, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. The Flyers already have 12 forwards under contract, including a bevy of centers, so Laughton faces a numbers game at the NHL level.
Analysis: Scott Laughton got a taste of the professional leagues last season, but at 19-years-old, he remains eligible for the juniors. He had 56 points and was a plus-22 in 49 games for Oshawa (OHL) last season. Considered strong in his own end, Laughton needs to work on his around-the-net game.
