Read tallied the Flyers' lone goal in Saturday's season finale against the Senators.

Read closed 2014-15 with eight goals and 30 points over 80 games. While he wasn't counted on to be much more than a complementary scorer heading into the season, Read failed to live up to even those modest expectations, as the goal total was less than half of what he posted a year earlier (22). Much of the blame for that decline probably lies in his 5.6 shooting percentage this season, which was nearly seven points less than his career mark.

Read recorded two assists in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Blackhawks.

The winger now has seven goals and 22 assists through 73 games on the season, and should continue to play a depth role moving forward.

Read (paternity) rejoined the Flyers on Friday, Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Read missed the Flyers' previous two games while celebrating the birth of his daughter. Despite his lack of on-ice work this week, he still figures to be inserted back into the lineup Saturday against the Oilers.

Read (paternity) isn't expected to rejoin the Flyers until the team heads to Edmonton for Saturday's game, Randy Miller of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

That means that Read will miss a second straight game Thursday in Calgary, allowing the newly recalled Nick Cousins to make another appearance in his stead.

Read (paternity) will not join the team in Vancouver for Tuesday's game, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.

With Read back in Philadelphia to await the birth of his child, Nick Cousins is expected to enter the lineup for his NHL debut. It's unclear if Read will rejoin the team in advance of Thursday's tilt with the Flames.

Read is heading back to Philadelphia on Monday due to the expected birth of a child. His return date remains unclear at this time.

Read may be allotted a fair amount of time as the Flyers remain outside of the playoff picture. While his departure likely rules him out for Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Thursday's game can't be ruled out at this point. However, it seems more likely than not that he won't dress Thursday either.

Read collected a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Flyers.

He was integral to the Flyers' mid-third-period rally, helping out on two goals within two minutes to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead. Read's been a little more productive recently, with four points in his last five games, but even at his best he's of modest fantasy value.

Read opened the scoring with a goal in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rangers.

With his first goal in the last seven games, Read is now on pace for 30 points this season. That would be his lowest, full-season total in the NHL. His shot percentage is also at a career-low mark, so it could just be poor luck. Either way, he hasn't been a solid fantasy play this season.
