Michal Neuvirth could be the player that Vegas plucks off Philadelphia's roster in the expansion draft.
Neuvirth was a member of the Capitals when new Vegas GM George McPhee was there and that familiarity could get him selected. If he gets taken then the Flyers may circle back to pending UFA netminder Steve Mason. The Flyers surprisingly chose to protect Anthony Stolarz instead of Neuvirth. Jun 20 - 11:55 AM

Flyers GM Ron Hextall still has confidence in Michal Neuvirth.

"I really believe [he] is going to come back focused," Hextall said. "He was really good for us last year. This year, he was kind of reflective of our team. He was inconsistent. He had some good times and some times that weren't very good. I expect [him] to come back and be a really good player for us. In saying that, we need two guys." Neuvirth got a two-year contract extension in March and Steve Mason could be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Michal Neuvirth suffered a concussion when he collapsed on the ice last week.

It was a really scary moment, as Neuvirth collapsed in front of his own net with nobody around him.

The Philadelphia Flyers are saying that Michal Neuvirth has an upper-body injury.

Neuvirth collapsed during a faceoff on Saturday and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. He was hospitalized, but was released Sunday afternoon. We don't have all the details about what happened and obviously the term upper-body injury doesn't reveal much. It was previously noted that his collapse might have been the result of a sinus infection, but it's not clear if that's truly the cause. The Flyers are also saying that he's day-to-day.
Apr 6 - 11:44 AM

Michal Neuvirth has been suffering from sinus trouble of late and that may have been the reason for his collapse on Saturday.

It was a scary moment in the Flyers-Devils game Saturday as Neuvirth collapsed during a faceoff. He was on the ice for a while before he was taken off in a stretcher. The good news is that he seems fine now and he likely will be re-evaluated on Monday. Stay tuned.
Apr 3 - 9:41 AM

Michal Neuvirth was released from Pennsylvania Hospital on Sunday afternoon, and is home resting.

Fortunately, his testing came back normal and will receive a follow-up on Monday. It would seem things will be okay for the netminder. Which is all that really matters.
Apr 2 - 1:33 PM

Michal Neuvirth remained at Pennsylvania Hospital overnight after collapsing during Saturday's game.

Neuvirth regained consciousness and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. It sounds like he may have been battling an illness. "I don't want to speculate -- he's had a little bit of a chest cold, there's been a few things going around, there has been all winter," Flyers GM Ron Hextall said. "We sent him over to the hospital for precautionary reasons, everything so far has been good, things are positive." Even if Neuvirth is released from the hospital, he won't join the Flyers on their final road trip of the season. The Flyers are playing the Rangers in New York on Sunday and being hosted by New Jersey on Tuesday.
Apr 2 - 10:17 AM

During a stoppage of play during the first period in the Flyers vs. Devils game Saturday night, Michal Neuvirth collapsed and was attended to by trainers.

Neuvirth regained consciousness and was stretchered from the ice. He collapsed after 7:37 of ice time. No further details were immediately available, so stayed tuned for updates.
Apr 1 - 7:40 PM

Michel Neuvirth will get the nod on Saturday against New Jersey.

He was in the starter's crease during the morning skate and will play versus the Devils. Neuvirth has posted losses in each of his last four starts. He has a 10-11-1 record this season with a 2.83 GAA and an .890 save percentage.
Apr 1 - 10:57 AM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 20 of 21 shots in a 1-0 loss to Columbus.

Neuvirth has now dropped his last four decisions, although this is a particularly tough loss to swallow. He has a 10-11-1 record with the Flyers this season.
Mar 25 - 4:59 PM

Michal Neuvirth will probably play between the pipes on Saturday.

It will be Neuvirth's first start since March 9. He has a 2.91 GAA and .887 save percentage in 26 games this season.
Mar 25 - 11:53 AM

Michal Neuvirth stopped 29 of 32 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.

He now has losses in five of his last six starts in goal for the Flyers, giving up 20 goals during that span. Many were left scratching their head when the Flyers announced Neuvirth would be starting rather than Mason who has been red hot lately. Neuvirth wasn't bad but he could have done better on Marner's goal that made the game 3-1. The loss drops his record to 10-10-1 on the year.
Mar 9 - 10:27 PM

Michal Neuvirth will start Thursday's game against Toronto.

Steve Mason has been excellent lately, so it is a bit surprising to see Neuvirth start in an important game. Coach Dave Hakstol doesn't want to overload his goalies because the Flyers have a busy upcoming schedule. Neuvirth was in goal for a 2-1 win over the Leafs on Jan. 26 at the Wells Fargo Center.
Mar 9 - 3:04 PM

Michal Neuvirth might play between the pipes on Thursday.

Steve Mason has made four straight starts and has done well over that span, but the Flyers are up against Toronto next, which hasn't been a favorable opponent for Mason. He has a 3.43 GAA and .876 save percentage in his career against Toronto. Neuvirth hasn't excelled against Toronto either, but he's a more reasonable 2.87 GAA and .901 save percentage versus the Leafs.
Mar 9 - 6:08 AM

An interesting wrinkle in Michal Neuvirth's contract extension has emerged.

It's not much, but he'll earn $250K in signing bonuses in each of his two years the contract is signed for. Mind you, his $2.5M cap hit remains. The structure matters as it alleviates a bit of salary pressure from the Flyers, or whoever is paying him at the time, it ensures some flexibility for the Flyers, and it acts as a guard against the potential lockout that looms over the National Hockey League. All in all, it's a fair deal for each party involved.
