Laughton is listed as day-to-day, but if he is indeed concussed then there's no telling how long he'll be out for. He missed Thursday's contest as a result of the injury. With six points in 27 contests, he shouldn't be on your fantasy team if you're in a single-season standard league.

Scott Laughton is seeing time on the second line with Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds.

This is a great spot to be in as the Flyers do have good scoring wingers on their top two lines. Laughton is establishing himself in the NHL although he has only two assists in 12 games this season. He could be worth a flier in deeper leagues as he has shown in the past that he is capable of scoring. "He skated well," said coach Craig Berube. "I think he’s pretty much skated well every game he’s played in. He does good stuff out there and adds energy, his skating ability and attack mentality. ... He has things to learn and he will as it goes along."

Scott Laughton played well on Friday in the Flyers 3-0 loss to the New York Rangers.

Laughton gave a good accounting of himself Friday as he had three shots on net and was strong defensively. He has yet to pick up a point in 11 career games but the former number one pick by the Flyers should start scoring in the near future.

Scott Laughton led the way with six hits on Saturday.

Laughton was recalled on Tuesday and has made a great impression thus far as he started out on the fourth line and has moved up to third line minutes as he played 15:01 on Saturday against the Blue Jackets. He has no points in three NHL games this season and has yet to get a point in eight career NHL games but the points will come soon. He is worth a flier in deep pools.

Scott Laughton has impressed the Flyers in his first two games since his recall on Tuesday.

Laughton started on the fourth line and moved up to center the third unit on Thursday between Vincent Lecavalier and R.J. Umberger. "I thought Laughton played really well," coach Craig Berube said. "He skated, competed, and had a heavy stick out there."
Sat, Nov 22, 2014 10:26:00 AM

Scott Laughton is slated to play between Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Vincent Lecavalier on Wednesday against the Rangers.

He will be making his season debut after skating in five games with the Flyers in 2012-13. "I'm definitely a little more confident now," said Laughton after Wednesday's morning skate. "Two years ago, I started during the lockout year. I was 18 years old out of junior and didn't really know what to expect ... I've played a couple exhibition games, and playing pro hockey for 12 or 13 games was good for me."

The injury to Michael Raffl will not lead to the Flyers recalling Scott Laughton, according to GM Ron Hextall.

Hextall thinks Laughton is better served by developing in the minors for now. The 20-year-old forward has five goals and seven points in nine AHL games in 2014-15.
