Jakub Voracek scored once in the second and again in the third to assist in the 6-3 victory of the Philadelphia Flyers over the Carolina Hurricanes Saturday night

This lifted the Flyers to 2-2-1 while the Canes slipped to 1-2-2. Voracek’s goal at the 7:19 minute mark was his first of the season. It was also the centerpiece of a flurry of four unanswered goals in the second period—a period that started out with the Flyers overcoming a two-goal deficit. He scored the final goal of the night at the 17:33 minute mark. While these were his first two goals of 2016-17, Voracek has scored points in all but one of his five games this season with four previous assists. He also had an assist Saturday night.

Jakub Voracek received 22 PIM at the tail end of the Philadelphia Flyers' 4-3 OT loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

It was slated to be a tough game for Voracek, who had a -2 rating and two SOG, but that massive end-game punishment could very well help swing several weekly head-to-head matchups. Voracek's career-high for PIMs was 78 in 2014-15, but he normally falls in the 30-40 range.

Two goals by Jakub Voracek -- one in overtime -- sparked the Philadelphia Flyers to a 4-3 triumph over the visiting New York Rangers in exhibition play Monday night.

Voracek got his first exhibition goal of the preseason in the first period to give the Flyers a 2-0 lead and then scored the game winner 27 seconds in the overtime session. Jordan Weal and Travis Konecny had the other Philly goals. The Flyers were up 3-0 in the first until the Rangers tied the game with goals by Ryan Graves, Brandon Pirri and Jimmy Vesey. Pirri is having a first-rate preseason, with four goals so far. Steve Mason was the winning goalie, stopping 27 of the 30 shots he faced. Henrik Lundqvist recorded 17 saves on 18 shots for the Rangers and Mackenzie Skapski stopped 12 of 15 Philadelphia shots.

Jakub Voracek potted a goal for the Czech Republic in a 3-2 overtime loss to Team Europe on Monday afternoon in Toronto.

The Czechs picked up an important point in the standings, but lost for a second game in a row at the World Cup of Hockey. Martin Hanzal had the other goal in the defeat.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall is confident that Jakub Voracek will bounce back after a disappointing season.

"Typically after a guy signs a big contract there's more expected of him from himself," Hextall said. "As an organization, we signed a good hockey player and we didn't expect him to be any more than he was, [but] there's a certain burden that comes with that. … I'm sure there will be a lot of growth from Jake from last year." Voracek scored picked up 81 points in 2014-15, but managed just 14 goals and 55 points in last season. Expecting him to score 80 plus points may be a little too much, but a 65-point season isn't out of the question.

Jakub Voracek admitted that he had some confidence issues this past season.

Voracek tied for fourth in NHL scoring in 2014-15 but this past season was a different story as he had only one goal in his first 30 games on his way to an 11 goal, 55 point season. "It’s not like I’m crying here or something, but when things don’t go your way, sometimes you overthink things," Voracek said. "It’s kind of cliché to squeeze the stick too tight. But we are professionals, we get paid to make a difference in the game. I wouldn’t use it as an excuse, but with me, everything coming automatically — passes, shooting — I never did overthink things. This year, sometimes, before I passed the puck, I was thinking, ‘What if I hit something, what if the puck doesn’t make it there?’ Before I even passed it. I think I had a little confidence issue this year sometimes." Look for Voracek to get around 70 points next season.

Jakub Voracek has been bumped to the second line for Wednesday's game against Washington.

He will start Game 4 alongside Michael Raffl and Sam Gagner. Voracek didn't have a problem with the decision. "Something had to be done; we've scored two goals in three games," he said. Voracek has one goal in three contests in the series.
Apr 20 - 3:05 PM

Jakub Voracek scored the lone Flyers goal in their 4-1 loss in Game 2 against the Capitals on Saturday night.

Voracek had a strong game, aside from his fifth career playoff goal. He also finished as a 68% possession player. If the Flyers want to come back in this series, their top players, Voracek included, have to produce. Their depth isn’t good enough to compete with Washington’s. Voracek has 16 career playoff points in 24 games. Brayden Schenn and Shayne Gostisbehere got the assists.
Apr 16 - 10:10 PM

Jakub Voracek is slumping at the worst time of the season for the Flyers.

Voracek has been back only 11 games from a lower body injury and has only a goal and five points with a minus-four rating. He has 11 goals and 51 points this season but that is way off last season's career year of 81 points. He should rebound next year so don't forget about him in drafts.
Apr 9 - 9:32 AM

Jakub Voracek notched a goal in the Flyers’ 6-2 loss against the Penguins on Sunday evening.

Thus ends a 10-game stretch without a goal, though it’s not like Voraceck hasn’t been creating chances. He has 11 goals on 198 shots, so he’s scored at a 5.5% rate, compared to 9.5% in his career. Don’t discount him in drafts next season. Wayne Simmonds had the other goal, his 29th.
Apr 3 - 7:57 PM

Jakub Voracek is nearly 100 percent according to coach Dave Hakstol.

Voracek has been back for nine games and is rounding back into form after a foot injury cost him nine contests. He is back on the second line with Sean Couturier and Michael Raffl and that gives the Flyers a very good second line heading into the post-season, should they make it. Voracek has 10 goals and 50 points in 67 games, a far cry from last season's 81 point outburst but still not too shabby.
Apr 2 - 10:07 AM

Jakub Voracek saw second line duty on Thursday.

Voracek started the game on the third line with Nick Cousins and Matt Read but coach Dave Hakstol moved him up to play with Sean Couturier before the end of the game. He was on the first line before he missed nine games with a lower body injury and Hakstol thought the line of Brayden Schenn, Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds was functioning very well as a top unit. Voracek has 10 goals and 50 points in 63 games, a far cry from his 81 point performance last season.

Jakub Voracek is in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 26-year-old missed nine games because of a lower-body injury. He has 10 goals and 48 points in 60 games this season. The Flyers may opt to limit his ice time in his first game back.
Mar 19 - 1:21 PM

If Jakub Voracek (foot) does return on Saturday, it will probably be alongside Matt Read and Nick Cousins.

There's some reluctance to alter the Flyers' top two lines while Philadelphia is in the middle of an impressive run. In order to make room for Voracek on the third unit, Scott Laughton would shift to the fourth line. Voracek isn't guaranteed to play on Saturday, but it seems likely.
