Oct 21 - 10:14 AM

In a surprising development, it appears Taylor Leier has made the opening night roster for the Philedelphia Flyers.

Nothing has been finalized yet, but Leier started practice on the fourth line Saturday, while Oskar Lindblom, Jori Lehtera and Matt Read skated with the extras. Leier is a former fourth-round pick with two points in 16 career NHL contests.
Sep 30 - 6:16 PM

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.
Sep 21 - 10:54 AM

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

These two teams played a pair of split-squad games tonight, as Philadelphia won the game in Lehigh Valley, while the Islanders won the game in Brooklyn. 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.
Sep 20 - 10:40 PM

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed Taylor Leier to a one-year contract extension.
