Matt Read will return to the Flyers' lineup in Sunday's match with the Rangers
Laughton had miss the previous two games as a healthy scratch. Now through 88 career NHL games, the young forward has posted 20 points, 44 PIMs, and 126 hits. Which is not a whole lot of production, unfortunately. Feb 14 - 2:12 PM

By playing in his 44th game of the season on Tuesday, Scott Laughton is no longer exempt from waivers.

Laughton dings the Flyers' cap at $863,333, which is a lot for a team just a touch over $2.1M away from the ceiling. He has just 12 points and 51 hits on the season, so he isn't much of fantasy asset. But at just 21-years-old, there's plenty of time to develop.
Jan 19 - 8:29 PM

Scott Laughton scored his first goal since Nov. 12th in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus.

That's a span of 16 games between Laughton's third and fourth goals of the season. He now has 10 points in 33 games this season, and certainly does not appear to be the depth scorer Philadelphia was hoping for.

Scott Laughton registered an assist in a 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

Laughton has three goals and nine points in 28 games this season. That's pretty good when you consider that he's been averaging just 10:59 minutes per game.

Scott Laughton played on the wing Friday.

Laughton normally plays center but moved over to allow Nick Cousins to play up the middle. The line, which included Colin McDonald, scored once, which was good news as the Flyers are the lowest scoring team in the NHL. Laughton has three goals and seven points this season so he has little fantasy value.

Scott Laughton (upper body) will be in the lineup Monday night.

He was injured Saturday on his first shift of the game, but is OK to play against Carolina. That means that Vincent Lecavalier will be scratched again.

Scott Laughton (upper body) was back on the ice on Sunday.

Laughton left Saturday's contest after absorbing a hit from Ottawa's Alex Chiasson. Laughton is questionable for Monday's contest.

Scott Laughton suffered an upper body injury in the first period Saturday and did not return.

Laughton was injured when hit by the Senators Alex Chiasson on a good hit 2:08 into the first period. Consider him day-to-day for now. He has three goals and six points in 20 games and managed to play only 23 seconds on Saturday.

Scott Laughton scored and added five shots in a 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Tuesday.

Laughton and Ryan White scored in a losing cause for the offensively challenged Flyers. Laughton has two goals and three assists for five points on the season. The Flyers have a hard time scoring and it showed on this night again on the back-end of back-to-back nights on the west coast.
Wed, Nov 4, 2015 01:35:00 AM

Scott Laughton scored for the first time in 21 games Saturday.

The streak goes back to last season and the former first round pick has to be happy today as he no longer has to think about it. He was selected 20th overall in the 2012 Draft and is a bottom-six forward at this stage of his career. Laughton will never be a big scorer in the NHL and is more of a two-way center so he is not worth picking up in fantasy pools at this time.

Scott Laughton has started to click with linemates Matt Read and R.J. Umberger.

Read scored and Umberger picked up a couple of assists but the trio played well defensively against the Tampa Bay line of Tyler Johnson, Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat. Laughton has fringe fantasy value this season and should get 30-35 points.

Scott Laughton was playing alongside Matt Read and R.J. Umberger on Saturday.

It certainly seems that Laughton will start the season with the Flyers and that makes sense as he was very good during training camp. The status of Vincent Lecavalier could be in doubt but Laughton deserves his shot to crack the lineup. Laughton will be a fringe fantasy option in deeper leagues this season.

It's always important to use a caveat of "for now," but at the moment, it seems as though Scott Laughton may make the Philadelphia Flyers' cut.

The team is in many ways geared toward the future, yet if Laughton is truly ready, it would be foolish to limit him. He may only get a taste of action before being sent down, and there's still time for things to change, but so far he's passing his tests.

Although Scott Laughton is a dark horse to secure a roster spot with Philadelphia, he is at least having a positive training camp.

"Scotty has showed us quite a bit. I like what I’ve seen," Flyers GM Ron Hextall said. "He's a hungry player, and he’s absolutely worked his butt off. To my knowledge, he’s in the best shape that I’ve seen him in and he’s making a good impression. He’s obviously got work to do, but what I’ve seen I’ve liked." Laughton has survived the Flyers' big training camp cuts thus far, but the Flyers' depth up the middle will likely work against him. It wouldn't be surprised to see him summoned at some point during the season though as an injury replacement.

Scott Laughton has been loaned to Philadelphia's AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Laughton has been with Philly since mid-November, playing in 31 games with four points and 58 hits during his time. He'll now head back to Lehigh Valley where he registered six goals and 11 points through 13 games before joining the Flyers.
