Wayne Simmonds RW PHI 2 Months

Simmonds scored the Flyers' lone regulation goal -- on a power play, naturally -- and tallied the game-winning shootout marker Tuesday against Ottawa. He also served five for fighting.

Aside from Jakub Voracek's first-round shootout goal, Simmonds was the only man with a line on getting the puck past Sens netminder Craig Anderson. It's been a bit of a down year so far for Simmonds -- his scoring rate is down a few ticks and his PIM totals haven't really been there either until the last two games. But he's actually hitting at a career-high rate and remains a power-play ace, having tallied 15 of his 26 points with the extra man.

Simmonds' late-first-period power-play tally turned out to be the only time the Flyers got a puck past Andrei Vasilevskiy in his NHL debut Tuesday in a 3-1 loss to the Lightning.

That's Simmonds' third straight game finding twine and his sixth goal in the last six games. Simmonds has been lighting up the scoresheet lately, and with the PIM he folds into his stat line, he should be starting in most formats.

Simmonds lit the lamp and added a helper in Saturday's 5-1 beatdown of the Hurricanes.

Simmonds was one of five Flyers to post multi-point performances in this one, and he now sits at 13 goals and eight assists on the season. Owners would undoubtedly like to see more in the PIM department from Simmonds, as he only has 23 thus far, but his continued offensive production likely helps lessens the blow.

Simmonds scored his seventh power-play goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Devils.

Simmonds has scored four times in the last four games. He's 16th in the league in that category, and he's on pace to set a career-high in goals scored. Even though his assists are down from previous years, Simmonds is a solid start in all formats.

Simmonds potted two goals and chipped in four hits in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Ducks.

Simmonds gave the Flyers a sense of hope that their losing streak might come to an end by tallying the tying goal with 2.6 seconds remaining in regulation, extending the game to overtime. While Simmonds and his mates couldn't prevail in the shootout, it was good to see the winger get back on track after his offense had gone cold of late. He had previously provided only one point over his previous five games.

Simmonds spent seven minutes in the sin bin in Monday's 1-0 shootout loss to the Islanders.

The tall winger's ability to collects points and PIM make him a solid start in every league.

Simmonds scored his first game-winner of the season in Saturday's 4-2 triumph over the Blue Jackets.

Simmonds' second-period tally came via the power-play, where five of his eight goals have come this season. His scoring pace has slowed considerably since he busted out with seven points in his first four games to start the season, but he still produces points with enough frequency to warrant a roster spot in any format.

Simmonds scored a power-play goal and assisted on another in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.

He also collected two PIM and four hits and finished the night minus-1. While Simmonds should always be a start, he's especially valuable at home. He's got nine points in eight home games, and just two in his six road games.

Simmonds took over the left wing spot for Chris VandeVelde, who was filling in for the injured Michael Raffl (lower body), Tim Panaccio of CSN Philadelphia reports.

It took Flyers' coach Craig Berube just one period to yank the leash on Chris VandeVelde and replace him with Simmonds. While the left wing is not Simmonds' natural spot -- he said he hadn't played it since he was 12 -- he did manage to assist on Jakub Voracek's goal later in the game. The move to the top line could mean a points-surge for the assistant captain, and fantasy owners should keep watch. He remains a start in all fantasy fixtures.

Simmonds collected an assist and four PIM in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers.

He also improved to a plus-8 for the season, good enough for top 10 in the league. He'll be a definite start Tuesday when the Flyers take on the Oilers at home.
