Shayne Gostisbehere has played in only three games but is showing that he has plenty of offensive prowess.
Gostisbehere was drafted in the middle of the third round in 2012 and has a goal and an assist in three games since his recall a week ago. He is also quarterbacking the power play with Mark Streit out of action so he makes a real good waiver wire pickup at this time. Nov 21 - 8:21 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere will get to play on the top power-play unit again Tuesday night.

He registered an assist in his first NHL game of the season Saturday night, but that came at even strength. Evgeny Medvedev will be a healthy scratch for a second straight game.

Shayne Gostisbehere picked up his first NHL point Saturday.

Gostisbehare was recalled on Saturday and played in only his third career game and first this season. He got an assist on Wayne Simmonds game tying goal with 3:09 left in the third. A third round pick in 2012 out of Union College, Gostisbehere has no real fantasy value at this time.
Nov 15 - 7:31 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere has been recalled by the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 22-year-old has played in two NHL games in his career, but he'll play in his first game of the 2015-16 season tonight. He has two goals and 10 points in 14 AHL games.
Nov 14 - 5:44 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere didn't make the grade for the Philadelphia Flyers, so he was sent to the AHL.

The 22-year-old was a third-round pick (78th overall) in the 2012 NHL Draft. He has an intriguing future with Philly, but it sounds like he'll need to wait before he can make an impact.

Shayne Gostisbehere scored two goals in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 22-year-old was drafted by the Flyers in the third round of the 2012 Entry Draft. Gostisbehere scored the fourth and fifth goals (both in the third period) for the Flyers. It's a nice performance from the young defender but it would be shocking to see Philadelphia keep him on the roster once the regular season kicks off in early October. The undersized defenseman did play in two games in the NHL last season, but he didn't record a point or a shot in either of those games. The Flyers have several young players at his position that are ahead of him on the organizational depth chart.

Shayne Gostisbehere is projected to start the 2015-16 in the minors.

He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee last season that is expected to delay his entry into the NHL. "I haven't played a lot of games since college, and I just want to get out there - feel the game, make some plays, get hit, hit someone - and just have some fun out there," said Gostisbehere. He appeared in just two games with the Flyers and five with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the AHL last year. Gostisbehere said his knee feels like it's 100 percent and he's ready to get back to playing.

Shayne Gostisbehere (knee) feels close to 100% at this point.

Gostisbehere is attending the Philadelphia Flyers' development camp. He was limited to five AHL contests and two games with Philadelphia due to a torn ACL. With that behind him, he'll be a candidate to make the Flyers' roster out of training camp, although that would be tough for him to pull off given the team's defensive logjam.
Jul 8 - 11:02 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere (knee) might not return this season even if he gets medical clearance.

That's not shocking considering Gostisbehere has been limited to just seven contests this season, including five AHL games. He might as well shift his focus to being as prepared as possible for the 2015-16 campaign. That being said, Gostisbehere will be evaluated on Wednesday, so we should know more about his status at that point.
Mar 24 - 11:21 AM

Flyers GM Ron Hextall denied a recent report that Shayne Gostisbehere has been shutdown for the rest of the season.

Gostisbehere is trying to come back from surgery for a torn ACL. Although Hextall said he hasn't been shutdown yet, he didn't rule out the possibility of that happening. "Shayne sees our doctor down here in about two weeks," Hextall said. "Something will come out of that. Has there been talk of shutting him down for the year? Yes, there has. But the final decision has not been made."
Mar 6 - 11:27 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere (knee) should be back sometime in February.

Gostisbehere underwent surgery for a torn ACL in November. Prior to that he made his NHL debut on Oct. 25 and played again on Oct. 28. He was limited to less than 13 minutes in each contest. When he's healthy enough to play, he'll probably serve in the minors rather than immediately be called up by Philadelphia.
Jan 28 - 3:23 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere's knee surgery went quite well according to GM Ron Hextall.

Gostisbehere only needed surgery on his ACL and that was the absolute best the Flyers could have hoped for when he went under the knife this past week. Gostisbehere will watch the Flyers play alongside Kjell Samuelsson while recovering. "He can watch [Michael] Del Zotto and [Mark] Streit and the other defensemen, and he can learn a lot," Hextall said. "He can find a way in the next few months to get better. Just by watching, you can learn a lot - and be better for it when he comes back." Hextall said that Gostisbehere will be ready to go in 3 or 3 1/2 months so he should return in mid-late February.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall thinks Shayne Gostisbehere (torn ACL) might be able to return before the end of the 2014-15 campaign.

Gostisbehere will have surgery before the end of November. This unfortunate setback came just a couple weeks after he made his NHL debut.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced that prospect Shayne Gostisbehere is out indefinitely with a torn ACL.

The 21-year-old was a third-round pick (78th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft. He played two games with the Flyers in 2014-15.

The Philadelphia Flyers are sending Shayne Gostisbehere to the minors.

Gostisbehere's demotion follows the Flyers' decision to sign Carlo Colaiacovo. "I knew it was coming," Gostisbehere. "It was nothing I didn't expect. I mean, it's going to happen. I'm a young guy. Guys like that over there (Colaiacovo) get called and signed. Guys have earned their stripes here already, so they get the opportunity to play, and my time will come." Gostisbehere has no points and a minus-two rating in two games with Philadelphia this season.
