Philippe Myers has been assigned to Lehigh Valley of the AHL.

Myers was competing for a spot on Philadelphia's defense corps entering the season, but he came up short. However, he still could see time in the NHL at some point this year. The Flyers also sent Nicolas Aube-Kubel to the minors on Tuesday.

Andrew MacDonald (lower body) was able to participate in Monday's preseason game.

MacDonald was rusty at first, but the main thing is that he got through the contest. If he can participate in exhibition games, then it's very likely that he'll be fine for the season opener.

Claude Giroux scored a goal and registered an assist during Monday's 4-3 preseason loss to the Boston Bruins.

Jakub Voracek, James van Riemsdyk and Giroux combined beautifully on the power play for Philly's second goal of the night. Giroux then followed that up with an assist on Travis Konecny's second of the preseason just 62 seconds later. Giroux might not eclipse the century mark of points again but a point-per-game season is in the cards.

Corban Knight is on the verge of making the Flyers 23 man roster.

Knight has played 27 games in the NHL, 20 with the Florida Panthers in 2015-16 when he had two goals and seven points in his last time in the show. Knight is in the final year of a two-year deal with Philadelphia and looks to be a possible fourth line center. "I know my role is gonna be that fourth-line, versatile player (in the NHL)," Knight said. "For me to be put with guys like Laughts (Acott Laughton) and Raffl, for me it’s exciting. For me, I take that as a positive. It’s exciting to get on the ice with those guys and try to build some chemistry and hopefully build toward the exhibition game on Monday here." He will not have any fantasy value if he sticks.

Rookie goaltender Carter Hart could make the Flyers roster out of training camp.

The Flyers goalie of the future was expected to get his feet wet in the minors but injuries to Michal Neuvirth and Alex Lyon have moved him up the depth chart. The talented netminder was the first goalie in Canadian junior history to be named goaltender of the year twice and Flyer fans have to be excited about his future. He will battle Anthony Stolarz for the job behind Brian Elliott while Neuvirth remains on the shelf. He is a definite high pick in deep keeper leagues.

Sean Couturier left Saturday morning's practice early and was followed by the team's trainer.

Couturier is coming off a career-year, but played through a knee injury in the playoffs that has hampered him so far through camp. In his place, Jori Lehtera moved onto the top line between Claude Giroux and Travis Konecny. Stay tuned for an update on Couturier.

Michal Neuvirth (undisclosed) didn't end up playing on Friday.

Neuvirth was considered questionable due to what's believed to be a groin injury. It's not clear how serious the issue is, but he was seen on the ice Friday morning attempting to stretch before exiting in frustration.
Sep 22 - 5:10 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere left Friday's game early for "precautionary reasons."

We're talking about a preseason game, so it would have made sense to pull Gostisbehere if he was even dealing with the smallest of issue. That being said, we'll err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day for now.
Sep 22 - 5:09 AM

Shayne Gostisbehere scored a goal during Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the New York Islanders.

Gostisbehere's power-play tally in the first period was his third of the preseason. The 25-year-old will continue to be one of the top offensive blueliners in the NHL this season. He had 13 goals and 65 points in 78 contests last season. Don't be surprised if he hits those numbers again in 2018-19. Travis Konecny also scored for the Flyers in the loss.
Sep 21 - 9:47 PM

Michal Neuvirth is dealing with an unspecified injury.

Neuvirth spent a long time stretching Friday morning and then appeared to leave the ice in frustration before talking to a trainer. Although he hasn't been ruled out for Friday's preseason game, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol isn't counting on him participating either. If Neuvirth can't play then Carter Hart and Anthony Stolarz will split the contest. It's worth noting that Neuvirth had arthroscopic surgery on both hips during the offseason.
Sep 21 - 12:59 PM

Yegor Zamula has been cut from the Philadelphia Flyers' training camp roster.

However, Zamula won't leave training camp empty-handed as the Flyers signed him to a three-year, entry-level contract. He had two goals and 18 points in 69 WHL games in 2017-18.
Sep 20 - 6:10 PM

Alex Lyon will miss the next four weeks with a lower-body injury.

Lyon was a last-minute scratch from Tuesday's preseason game due to the ailment. He wasn't expected to make the Flyers' opening game roster and will likely begin the season in the minors once he's healthy.
Sep 20 - 3:06 PM

Philippe Myers has participated in three of the Flyers' four preseason games thus far.

Myers is getting a serious look for a roster spot, but he's far from a lock for making the team. One big X-Factor is Andrew MacDonald, who was initially expected to miss the start of the season with a lower-body injury, but might end up being available from the start after all. That would be a blow to Myers' chances, but it's not out of the question that Myers could make the team even if MacDonald is healthy. Myers is a towering defenseman at 6-foot-5 and had five goals and 21 points in 50 AHL contests as a rookie in 2017-18.
Sep 20 - 6:09 AM

Oskar Lindblom had two goals and an assist during Wednesday's 6-4 preseason win over the New York Rangers.

Lindblom's first of the night was a thing of beauty, batting the puck right out of the air to open the scoring. He then followed that up with an assist on Corban Knight's goal and a beautiful snipe for his second of the night. It was a big statement game from Lindblom who is looking to crack Philly's lineup this season.
Sep 19 - 9:48 PM

Alex Lyon sustained a lower-body injury prior to Tuesday's game.

That prevented Lyon from participating in the preseason contest as he was originally scheduled to do. Lyon was able to participate in the pregame warmups though, so he either suffered the issue at the last minute or he was testing the ailment before it was ultimately determined to keep him out of the contest. Consider him day-to-day for now.
