Dylan McIlrath will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the New Jersey Devils.

This will be his 11th straight game in the press box. McIlrath has only suited up in five games this season and unless there are injuries on the Panthers' blue line, it doesn't look like he'll play very much in the second half of the year.
Jan 9 - 6:56 PM

Dylan McIlrath has been sent to AHL Springfield on a conditioning stint.

McIlrath hasn't played since Dec. 15, so this will give him a chance to shake off the rust. He has a goal and 14 penalty minutes in five NHL games this season.
Jan 4 - 11:08 AM

Dylan McIlrath didn't come out of the press box for Thursday's game.

Dylan McIlrath scored in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild.

McIlrath's goal was rather meaningless, as it cut Minnesota's lead to 5-1 in the third period. Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith picked up the assists on Florida's only marker. McIlrath has one goal, a minus-2 rating and 14 penalty minutes in four games. He has no fantasy value.

Dylan McIlrath will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Florida.

McIlrath has only suited up in two games this season. Even when he does play, he won't have any fantasy value. Seth Griffith will also watch the game from the press box.

Dylan McIlrath will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Dylan McIlrath won't get the chance to face his former club, the New York Rangers.

McIlrath was sent to Florida back on Nov. 8th, but has played in just one game for the Panthers thus far. Unfortunately, he does not appear to have any fantasy value.

Dylan McIlrath played 17:18 in his first game as a member of the Florida Panthers.

The Panthers lost Thursday's game, 6-1, to the Toronto Maple Leafs. McIlrath finished the game with a minus-2 rating, one shot on goal and four hits in the game. He doesn't have any fantasy value, but with Alex Petrovic (lower body) injured, McIlrath will likely get some more game action.

Dylan McIlrath will make his Panthers debut Thursday night against the Maple Leafs.

Through the first 38 games of his career, McIlrath has four points with 84 PIMs and 99 hits. So if he starts to see regular time, and he might with Alex Petrovic's injury, pick him up if you're in a league that supports his talents.

Dylan McIlrath is expected to be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game in Montreal.

Since being acquired from the Rangers, McIlrath still hasn't played in a game for his new team. He won't have any fantasy value even when he does get in the lineup. Shawn Thornton is also expected to be scratched.
Tue, Nov 15, 2016 07:17:00 PM

Dylan McIlrath and Shawn Thornton will both be scratched against the Islanders on Saturday.

This shouldn't come as any surprise as Thornton has seen but a single game so far this season. McIlrath meanwhile surely needs to get in some more practices before coach Gerard Gallant can feel comfortable playing him.

Dylan McIlrath, Shawn Thornton and Jared McCann will each be scratched against the Sharks on Thursday.

Of the three, only McCann has played much. Through 13 games he has a goal and nine hits, which sits him nicely along with McIlrath and Thornton on the pine.

Dylan McIlrath is slated to take part in Thursday's morning skate.

However, it's unclear if he will make his Panthers debut versus San Jose after he was acquired earlier this week from the New York Rangers. When McIlrath does get into the lineup he could see some time with Keith Yandle, who is another ex-member of the Rangers and a former defense partner of his.
