Oct 28 - 9:29 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere is now playing with Radko Gudas.

The Flyers mixed up their defensive pairings with the injury to Andrew MacDonald and this should serve the offensively-minded Gostisbehere well as Gudas is a defensive defenseman for the most part. The other two pairings are Ivan Provorov and Robert Hagg with Travis Sanheim and Brandon Manning seeing third unit duty. Gostisbehere is off to a great start with a goal and 11 points in eight games.
Oct 24 - 9:14 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere picked up three more assists on Saturday.

He is off to a great start after a struggling sophomore season in which he had seven goals and 39 points. Gostisbehere had 46 points in 64 games as a rookie and do not be surprised if he is able to climb past the 50 point mark in 2017-18.

Shayne Gostisbehere got two assists in the Flyers' 6-5 loss to the Predators Tuesday night.

Gostisbehere has five assists in four games this season. His points have all come from a pair of multi-point contests on Oct. 4 and Oct. 10. He had seven goals and 39 points in 76 games as a sophomore in 2016-17 and has the potential to finish above the 40-point milestone this time around.
Oct 11 - 11:00 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere opened his season with three assists and one shot on goal in 18:12 of ice time in Saturday's 5-3 win at San Jose.

Ghost appeared to have a goal, but it was later changed to a marker for Wayne Simmonds instead. Still, a three-point night in the opener is nothing to sneeze at, as the rearguard hailing from the Sunshine State is off to a great start. He obviously showed no ill effects of the upper-body injury that slowed him at the end of the preseason.
Oct 5 - 2:28 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere (upper body) practiced Tuesday and declared himself "ready to go."

The Flyers have eight defensemen on the roster to start their four-game road trip and it's still unclear at this time if Gostisbehere will play Wednesday night. "He's gotta be able to help us win a game," GM Ron Hextall said. "We'll see how he is (Wednesday)."
Oct 3 - 5:53 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere (upper body) is on the Flyers' flight to San Jose, according to beat reporter Sam Carchidi.

Gostisbehere was injured in Sunday's preseason game against the Islanders. His availability for the regular season opener on Wednesday night is still up in the air, but the fact that he's making a cross-country trip is a good sign. Of course, it doesn't mean that he'll play on Wednesday, but it could indicate that he'll be in the lineup at some point during their four-game trip to open the season. Gostisbehere had 39 points in 76 games last season. Expect him to surpass that number if he stays healthy.
Oct 2 - 7:53 PM

Shayne Gostisbehere suffered an upper body injury in the third period Sunday and did not return.

The severity of the injury is unknown at this time and the Flyers may carry eight defensemen to start the season as a result. That would mean that rookies Travis Sanheim and Sam Morin will make the team in addition to the already selected first year player Robert Hagg. Gostisbehere should improve on his 39 point season of last year if he is healthy so look for 50 points from the offensive Gostisbehere.
Oct 2 - 8:38 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere has focused on adding upper-body core strength and muscle over the summer.

The goal is to provide Gostisbehere with more stamina and put him in a battle position to battle for the puck along the boards. He should be in a significantly better position physically than he was a year ago. "I have a lot less doubt, just I'd say, body-wise," Gostisbehere said. "Obviously last year coming off surgeries and stuff. You have your doubts mentally if I'm going to hold up. I think the biggest thing for me is how good of a summer I just had, how strong I got. I feel like I'm in great shape. I'm ready for the season. Build it up to break it down." Heading into his third season in the NHL, Gostisbehere could end up with a 40-50 point season.
