Taylor Leier might be able to squeeze onto the Philadelphia Flyers' roster as a fourth liner.

Leier can score as he demonstrated in Wednesday's preseason game when he netted a pair of power-play goals, but it's his aggressive style of play that might earn him a spot this season. It's worth keeping an eye on the situation, but we wouldn't recommend taking him in standard fantasy leagues because the potential role he might play with Philadelphia in 2017-18 won't lend itself to a lot of points.

Taylor Leier scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 3-2 OT win over the New York Islanders.

Leier had just one goal and one assist in 10 games with the Flyers last season, but he managed to produce 37 points in 48 games in the AHL. He's far from being a lock to make the team out of training camp. But even if he does stay in Philadelphia, he won't have value in standard fantasy leagues.
