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.

Read chipped in a goal in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Sabres.After starting the season at a career-worst rate, Read is heating up as he's registered a point in four straight. The forward's goal-scoring numbers are still well below average for what he's capable of, but he could be worthy of consideration in deeper leagues if he can keep up this recent level of play.

Read ended a 25-game goal drought Tuesday, scoring the lone Flyers' goal in an overtime loss to Montreal.A good all-around game for Read, who was credited with four shots on goal in the loss. While he's only got four goals on the season, he has points in back-to-back games and is playing much better of late. Read, who revealed in mid-January that he's been playing with a high-ankle sprain, could be worth adding down the stretch in some deep leagues. Playing on the second line, Read just needs to show some consistency and get over that long-term injury to return to his usual 20-goal form.

Read compiled an assist, two hits and three blocked shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Capitals.The helper counts as Read's only point in the past seven games. However, his willingness to chip in on defense is keeping him on the ice at a steady clip. The Canada native has 19 points (3G, 16A) with an average ice time of 17:39 this season.
