    Flyers’ James van Riemsdyk: Picks up two helpers in win

    James van Riemsdyk notched two assists in Friday’s 5-2 win over the Penguins.The Philadelphia Flyers’ offense has been roaring to begin the season, and even with a placement on the third line alongside Nolan Patrick and Jakub Voracek, JVR has still come through with a goal and three points in two games. The 31-year-old just fell short of the 20-goal plateau last season due to the truncated schedule, but given Philly’s forward depth, van Riemsdyk might be able to get back to that level in 2020-21 even without a full 82-game slate.

    Flyers’ James van Riemsdyk: Starting to warm up

    James van Riemsdyk scored a goal on three shots Thursday in a 5-4 double-overtime win over the Islanders in Game 6.Van Riemsdyk has goals in back-to-back games after being held without a point through his first nine contests. His blast from the top of the left faceoff circle on a partial break Thursday gave the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-0 lead with just over eight minutes left in the first period. The 31-year-old receives ample power-play time and is still capable of collecting goals in bunches; he scored in back-to-back games on six occasions during the regular season.

    Flyers’ James van Riemsdyk: Tallies first of postseason

    James van Riemsdyk scored a goal on his lone shot and had two hits in Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders in Game 5.After failing to produce a single point in his first nine playoff games, van Riemsdyk got untracked Tuesday with a one-timer on an odd-man rush that gave the Philadelphia Flyers a 2-1 lead late in the second period. The 31-year-old scored 19 times in 66 games during the regular season, so he’s still plenty capable of providing offense despite his playoffs-long dry spell prior to Game 5.

    Flyers’ James van Riemsdyk: Will sit as healthy scratch

    James van Riemsdyk will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday’s Game 4 versus Montreal, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.Van Riemsdyk has only averaged 11:30 of ice time in the five contests he’s suited up for thus far this postseason and has gone scoreless over that stretch, so coach Alain Vigneault is clearly hoping Tuesday’s scratch will light a fire under the 31-year-old winger. JVR won’t have to wait long for his next opportunity to crack the lineup, as the Philadelphia Flyers will be right back at it Wednesday for Game 5.

    Flyers’ James van Riemsdyk: Will be ready by May

    According to general manager Chuck Fletcher, if the NHL resumed its season in May, James van Riemsdyk would be ready to return, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.At this point, a return to play in May is looking more and more like a best-case scenario for the NHL, but if the league does return to action this year, even for an abbreviated playoffs, van Riemsdyk will almost certainly be ready to rock. The 30-year-old winger totaled 19 goals and 40 points in 66 games before the NHL halted its season in March.

    Flyers’ James van Riemsdyk: Slated for 4-6 week absence

    Updating a previous item, the official timeline for James van Riemsdyk’s (finger) timetable to return is 4-to-6 weeks, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Carchidi initially indicated that van Riemsdyk was expected to sit around six weeks, so the updated timetable leaves open the possibility that van Riemsdyk could make a return near the end of the regular season or for the start of the postseason. In any event, it’s fairly safe to cut him loose in most redraft leagues at this point, though it will be worth monitoring his status toward the end of the season if he winds up at the early end of that timetable.

    James van Riemsdyk will require around six weeks to recover from a broken finger, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.Van Riemsdyk’s timeline has come into focus and it will officially put an end to his 2019-20 regular season. He could return to action in the postseason should the Philadelphia Flyers make it through the first round, and possibly a bit earlier if he can beat the expected timeline. In any event, van Riemsdyk should be safe to drop in the majority of redraft leagues.
