Braydon Coburn might be the next Flyers defenseman to find himself in the press box.

Coburn has been on the ice for 10 power-play goals against Philadelphia over the last 12 contests. He has two points and a minus-three rating in 13 contests in 2014-15.
Dec 5 - 11:10 AM

Braydon Coburn finally scored his first of the season on Saturday.

It was a 24 game drought for the blueliner who last scored in the 2013-14 season. His fantasy value is limited although he did have some nice offensive stats earlier in his career. Coburn now has a goal and an assist in seven games as he has been bothered by injuries this season. We cannot recommend him in standard pools at this time.

Braydon Coburn returned to action on Saturday after missing all but the opening game with a lower body injury.

The defenseman partnered Luke Schenn early on but Schenn was injured in the first stanza and Coburn started the second period alongside Niklas Grossman. Coburn was minus-two with four penalty minutes Saturday.
Nov 9 - 8:19 AM

Braydon Coburn (lower body) will probably make his return on Saturday.

Coburn hasn't played since Oct. 8. His status will be determined after Saturday's morning skate and while it sounds like the Flyers are leaning towards using him, it wouldn't be shocking if he's kept out of the lineup. After Saturday's contest, the Flyers won't play again until Nov. 14, so he'll get plenty of extra time to recover if they decide to kept him out of their next game.
Nov 7 - 3:31 PM

Braydon Coburn (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Oct 24 - 3:52 PM

Braydon Coburn (lower body) isn't expected to return Wednesday.

Despite all expectations to the contrary, Braydon Coburn (lower body) didn't play on Tuesday.

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn is still not quite ready to play as his team readies to face the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

Coburn seems to be taking precautionary steps more than anything else. "[Friday], I was getting the feeling I might need a couple more days just based on some of the skating and maneuvering things I was doing," Coburn told CSNPhilly.com. "I didn’t want to put myself in a position to get hurt again."
Oct 18 - 4:22 PM

Braydon Coburn could return to action on Saturday after missing the last three games with a lower body injury.

The Flyers could certainly use the services of one of their top blueliners as they have yet to win after four games. Do not expect a lot of points from Coburn as he had only 17 last season in a full season. "He’s close but we’ll see tomorrow," coach Craig Berube said. "See if he is cleared to play. There are some things I am looking for that I don’t see. There are good things that I do see. It’s a day-to-day thing. See if he feels better and more confident. I think it is a confidence thing. I don’t like putting anyone in there who doesn’t feel like they are 100 percent this early in the season. We’d like to have him back but I want to make sure he is ready."

Oct 15 - 6:32 PM
