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.

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.

The Philadelphia Flyers have sent Taylor Leier to the minors.

Leier participated in two preseason games and the Flyers are optimistic about his future. "He came into Portland (WHL), they had a good thing going with a lot of offensive players and they needed players to play the other side of the puck and be responsible," Flyers director of scouting Chris Pryor said. "That was one thing he grabbed onto. That was one of his strengths. He plays both sides. You can put him on the ice when you are down a goal or up a goal. Those kind of players are hard to find." Leier had 37 goals and 79 points in 62 WHL games in 2013-14.

Taylor Leier will likely not make the Flyers out of training camp but he is someone to keep an eye on.

The 20-year-old had 37 goals and 79 points last season and has even better in the playoffs with six goals and 26 points in 21 games. He should start the season with Adirondack of the AHL but he could be with the big club before the end of the season.
