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.

Voracek delivered his second-straight four-point game Saturday in a 4-2 win over the Stars. He scored a goal and added three power-play assists.

EDGE Analysis

Voracek has been on fire since late November. He is riding a four-game, 10-point scoring streak and has 15 points in his last eight games. Voracek is rewarding those who took a risk drafting him after a meagre 55-point effort last season. He has already recorded 11 goals in 30 games, the same number he had in 73 games last year. And Voracek's 32 points in 30 games thrust him into the top-three in league scoring.

Voracek exploded for a power-play goal, three assists and a plus-3 rating in Thursday's 6-5 victory over Edmonton.

EDGE Analysis

His last seven games have been excellent, as Voracek's stacked up 11 points (four on the power play) while going plus-6 in that span and firing 26 shots on net. After scoring at a nearly point-per-game clip in his second season with Philadelphia, he slumped to 55 points in 73 games last year, but Voracek's bounced right back to elite status -- he's got 28 points in 29 games.

Voracek registered two helpers -- including one on the game-winning goal -- and a plus-2 rating during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win against Ottawa.

EDGE Analysis

Voracek is building himself a solid point streak, earning position in the box score for three straight contests -- one goal and four helpers. The 27-year-old is proving his six-game pointless streak was a fluke and seems back on track to produce at a high level. Claude Giroux and Voracek have excellent chemistry on the top line that carries over to the scoresheet in bunches.

Voracek produced a goal and an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over Calgary.

EDGE Analysis

The pair of points put an end to a six-game pointless streak for the Czech, making it that much more impressive that he now has 19 points in 23 games this season. Voracek has also ran wild in the shots-on-goal department with 81 -- which is third in the NHL behind Brent Burns and Alex Ovechkin -- and has even added a cherry on top with a somewhat shocking 32 PIM.
