Voracek was protected by Philadelphia and will not be available to Las Vegas in the expansion draft, NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Voracek posted his third 60-point campaign over the past four years and also hit the 20-goal mark again last year. It was a bounce-back showing after dropping to just 11 tallies and 55 points during the 2015-16 season. However, returning to his 2014-15 level of production (81 points) appears unlikely going forward. Voracek is probably best viewed as a supporting fantasy asset and not a high-end contributor at this stage of his career.

Voracek scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 4-2 victory over the Blue Jacket.

EDGE Analysis

It was his 20th of the season; it came on the power play. Vorecek is looking more and more like a 55-65 point player, not the 81-point monster he was in 2014-15. Bear that in mind when you're looking forward to 2017-18.

Voracek scored his 18th goal of the season into an empty net during Thursday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The tally improved Voracek to 18 goals and 56 points for the campaign and also moved him ahead of his 55-point showing from last year. While he remains a rock-solid fantasy asset, it might be time to call his 2014-15 outburst (22 goals and 81 points) an outlier and not the norm. Additionally, entering his age-28 season next year, Voracek could also be another step closer to the end of his offensive prime.

Voracek hit the 50-point mark Saturday with a goal in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Voracek is on track for another 20-goal season and 60-plus points. However, his minus-20 rating hangs like an anchor in those leagues that count that stat.

Voracek is fine and will play Saturday's outdoor game in Pittsburgh, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turns out that the injury that Voracek suffered in practice is nothing serious and he'll be ready to go without missing his first game of the season. While he's not scoring at the outrageous clip that he showed in mid-December, he does have four points in his last six games and still averages 3:43 of average ice time on the power play.

Voracek left Thursday's practice prematurely due to an undisclosed injury, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this point, it's anyone's guess if this ailment is related to the one that resulted in Voracek leaving a practice session earlier in the week after a puck "deflected off his groin." The veteran playmaker logged 18:32 of ice time in Wednesday's loss to the Capitals, which was about a full minute less than his season average. He also struggled to a minus-3 rating in that contest, though it's tough to tell if that was the direct result of the injury since he's gone minus-20 on the year. At any rate, Voracek is considered day-to-day ahead of Saturday's road game against the Penguins.

Voracek hasn't registered a multi-point game in any of his past 11 outings and has just a goal and four assists during the stretch.

EDGE Analysis

There is clearly positive regression ahead of Voracek's 2.6 shooting percentage during the 11-game span, and the established scorer still has a solid 15 goals and 49 points through 60 games for the season. Look for him to breakout of his current offensive funk sooner than later, and it isn't out of the question to attempt a buy-low offer for his services.

Voracek scored a goal and collected a power-play assist during Wednesday's win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Up to 14 goals and 44 points through 49 games, Voracek remains a high-end scorer and fantasy asset. He's also averaging a hefty 3.2 shots per outing and entered Monday's contest receiving 3:55 of power-play time per game. It's ill-advised to undervalue him in any fantasy setting.

Voracek recorded his second-straight two-point game Saturday in a 4-2 victory over the Lightning.

EDGE Analysis

Voracek has returned to the lofty heights of his 81-point 2014-15 season. His 39 points (13 goals, 26 assists) vault him into a tie with three other skaters for seventh overall in NHL scoring.

Voracek scored two goals -- one on the power play -- during Wednesday's loss to New York.

EDGE Analysis

It was too little, too late for the star winger, but at least he snapped his four-game point drought and nine-game scoreless stretch. Still, despite his recent struggles, Voracek boasts a rock-solid 13 goals, 37 points and 136 shots through 40 games this season. His minus-11 rating is an eye sore, but otherwise, Voracek remains a high-end scorer and fantasy asset.
