Wayne Simmonds failed to pick up any points in a 4-0 loss to the New Jersey Devils, but he did pick up 16 penalty minutes in the contest.

Simmonds hit Lovejoy in the back as he was turning, causing the defenseman to go crashing into the boards. Simmonds then got himself into trouble mouthing off to the official, which eventually earned him a game-misconduct. He has practically filled up every fantasy stat imaginable this season with 16 goals, 13 assists, 60 penalty minutes, eight power play goals, and one short handed goal in 36 games this season.

Coach Dave Hakstol switched up Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek in practice Monday.

Simmonds was on the wing for Sean Couturier and Travis Konecny while Voracek moved back up and will play alongside Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn. The top-two lines are a combined minus-38 and the Flyers need to get better to have a chance at the post-season. "We have to get our consistency back," Simmonds said. "We have to make sure we're doing the right things - limiting the turnovers, and some of the brain [locks] we've had without the puck. I think our game with the puck has been very good, but some of the things without the puck we can improve on." Simmonds leads the Flyers with nine goals and has 16 points in 19 games. Not too shabby.

He has nine goals and seven assists in 18 games this season. Simmonds is on pace to score a career-high 41 goals. Sean Couturier, Michael Raffl, Mark Streit and Brandon Manning also scored for Philadelphia.

Wayne Simmonds had two assists Sunday.

Simmonds is on a four game point scoring streak and has 11 in 10 games this season. He broke a string of four straight games in which he was a minus-player and is now minus-four this season. Nevertheless, he should be in your lineup as he is a great source of points and penalty minutes.

Simmonds is the prototypical power forward in the NHL these days as he had 32 goals, 60 points and 147 penalty minutes last season. This year he has four goals and five points with eight penalty minutes in five games. He better be on someone's roster in your fantasy pool.
