Shayne Gostisbehere has broken the record for points in 11 consecutive games by a rookie defenseman.

He broke a 38-year-old record held by Barry Beck when he played for the Colorado Rockies in the 1977-78 season. Gostisbehere has been a revelation this season with 10 goals and 30 points in 35 games. He is a must own in fantasy pools.

The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled Andrew MacDonald from the American Hockey League.

MacDonald is coming up to the NHL because Michael Del Zotto is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury. MacDonald signed a $30 million contract prior to last season, but he's been a huge bust in the City of Brotherly Love. He won't have any fantasy value going forward.

Michael Del Zotto suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The news isn't good for the Flyers and their fans. GM Ron Hextall has already said the injury will keep Del Zotto out long-term. The 25-year-old has four goals and 13 points in 52 games.
Feb 13 - 5:24 PM

Michal Neuvirth allowed two goals on 24 shots in Saturday's 2-1 OT loss to the Devils.

Neuvirth didn't look good on Joseph Blandisi's first period goal. The Flyers goaltender didn't "hug" the post enough and was fooled by a between-the-legs shot by the Devils rookie. Neuvirth, who missed five games because of a lower-body injury, was making his first start since Jan. 27. He has an 11-6-3 record with a 2.13 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage this season.

Shayne Gostisbehere scored a goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils.

The 22-year-old now has a point in 11 straight contests, which is a new record for rookie defensemen. Gostisbehere has put together an incredible year since being called up from the minors earlier this season. He has 10 goals and 30 points in 35 games this season. He's worth owning in all fantasy formats.
Feb 13 - 4:20 PM

Michal Neuvirth will get a start this weekend.

Neuvirth missed five straight games with a lower body injury. He and Steve Mason will split the net this weekend. Neuvirth is 11-6-2 this season with a 2.14 GAA and a .933 save percentage. He has been great when in net.

R.J. Umberger ended a 50-game goal scoring drought on Thursday.

After finally finding the back of the net, Umberger said he made a little prayer towards the hockey gods. "I’ve had slumps in my career, 10, 15 games but that’s just an animal [50 games]," he added. "Guys could sense how tough it’s been on me." We'll see how he does now that he finally has that weight off his shoulders.
Feb 12 - 11:27 AM

Steve Mason dazzled the home crowd on Thursday night with 41 saves on 42 shots to pick up a 5-1 victory over Buffalo.

The win snaps a three game losing streak by the 26-year-old, who is 2-2-1 since the All Star Break. Overall, Mason is 12-14-7 with a 2.70 goals against average and .915 save percentage. He would be a much more valuable fantasy asset if he was more consistent, as he has shown spurts of great play this season.
Feb 11 - 10:09 PM

Michael Raffl led the Flyers to a 5-1 victory over the Sabres on Thursday night with a goal and an assist.

The 27-year-old has just 12 points in 52 games this season. His inconsistency is detrimental to his fantasy value.
Feb 11 - 9:55 PM

Matt Read will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

The 29-year-old simply hasn't produced enough this season. He has nine goals and 18 points in 51 contests. Scott Laughton and Evgeny Medvedev will also watch from the press box. R.J. Umberger and Jordan Weal will replace Laughton and Read up front.
Feb 11 - 6:49 PM

Anthony Stolarz has been sent to AHL Lehigh Valley.

This move corresponds with the Flyers taking Michal Neuvirth (lower body) off of the injured reserve list. Stolarz didn't end up playing for the Flyers during his NHL stint.
Feb 11 - 1:42 PM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) has been activated off of the injured reserve list.

As previously reported, Neuvirth will serve as the Flyers' backup goaltender on Thursday. He was unavailable for five straight games.
Feb 11 - 1:39 PM

Michal Neuvirth (lower body) will dress for the Flyers on Thursday.

Neuvirth will be serving as Steve Mason's understudy. Neuvirth last played on Jan. 27.
Feb 11 - 11:19 AM

R.J. Umberger will draw back into the Flyers' lineup on Thursday.

Umberger has spent five straight games as a healthy scratch. He has no goals and six assists in 32 contests this season.
Feb 11 - 11:18 AM

Steve Mason gets the nod on Thursday.

Mason has gone three straight games without a win. He now has a 12-14-7 record, 2.70 GAA, and .915 save percentage in 34 contests in 2015-16.
