Filppula collected a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating through 20:58 of ice time during Monday's 5-2 win over Calgary.

EDGE Analysis

This was Filppula's first goal in 11 games, and he recorded just two assists and 10 shots during that scoring drought. The veteran center has seven tallies and six helpers through 27 contests for the season, which is underwhelming production considering he's averaging 17:04 of ice time (2:21 with the man advantage) per game. It's probably best to leave Filppula to the waiver wire in most fantasy settings.

Filppula has recorded just two goals, two assists and 11 shots through his past 11 games.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran averaged a respectable 17:09 of ice time (2:17 on the man advantage) during that 11-game stretch, so minutes and role aren't the culprits. Additionally, his 0.86 points per 60 minutes rank eighth lowest among all forwards with at least 200 minutes at five-on-five this season. It's probably best to keep expectations in check for Filppula until he proves he can tilt the offensive scales again at even strength.

Filppula recorded a goal and added a power-play assist during Tuesday's 5-1 win over Florida.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran Finn has now scored four goals and added a helper through the past three games. He's rolling with the No. 1 power-play unit, and Filppula has also been centering the second line of late. Considering his offensively tilted role, he's a potential add with the Flyers scoring in bunches.

Filppula scored two power-play goals during Tuesday's 6-5 loss to Nashville.

EDGE Analysis

These were the first two points of the season for the 33-year-old veteran, but it's important to note that Filppula's role on the No. 1 power-play unit should buoy his fantasy value as long as he's skating with the top group. Filppula should probably be left to deep settings, but he's definitely worth keeping tabs on because of his offensive role.

Filppula scored a pair of goals in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The two tallies weren't quite enough, as the Flyers were eliminated from playoff contention with a 4-3 loss. The 33-year-old is finishing the season strong with four goals in his last five games and is playing on the second line. The Flyers might not be competing for the Stanley Cup this year, but with the way Filppula is scoring, he could be worth inserting into your lineup for these final regular season games.

Filppula led all Flyers forwards with 18:53 on the ice in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders, notching an empty-net goal and an assist.

EDGE Analysis

He's exceeded 18 minutes in consecutive games, but this was the Finn's first multi-point effort since Dec. 22, when he was a member of the Lightning. Filppula has now reached 40 points on the season, so he's easily exceeded last year's awful production, but he's still only really a fantasy option in deeper formats.

Filppula potted a second-period goal Sunday against Pittsburgh.

EDGE Analysis

This marks the veterans first goal since his debut with the Flyers on Mar. 12, a span of 13 games. The 33-year-old's lack of production makes him a risky fantasy option right now, but posting 38 points over 72 games this season should mean Filppula's fantasy stock is steady even as he ages.

Fillpula scored the game-tying goal in the third period of his Flyers debut Thursday, keying a 2-1 shootout win over the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

That's a great way to endear yourself to your new teammates. Filppula lined up as the No. 2 center between Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek, an assignment that comes with tons of potential fantasy value; his wingers registered the assists on the Finn's goal. While he'd stagnated in Tampa Bay, the Flyers' wide-open style might be just what Filppula needs to find his game again, especially if he carves out some power-play time.

Filppula was traded to the Flyers by the Lightning along with a fourth-rounder and a conditional seventh-rounder for Mark Streit on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

With seven goals and 34 total points in 59 games, Filppula has improved his production from last season's 31 in 76, but it's dried up recently, as he heads to Philly with just two points in his last 12 contests. We can't yet say for certain where Filppula will line up with his new squad, but word on that should come out once he's able to get his first Flyers practice in.

Filppula picked up an assist Thursday in a loss to Calgary. It was just his second point in 11 games.

EDGE Analysis

Flip has been struggling offensively since Jan. 24. He has just six shots in those 11 games -- the same number as hits in that span. Filppula has managed to put up more point to this point (34 in 58 games) than he did in 76 games last season (31). Still, there's minimal value in his game right now.
