James van Riemsdyk To Make Series Debut Wednesday

Boston Bruins winger James van Riemsdyk will make his series debut in Wednesday's Game 3 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The veteran was a healthy scratch for the first two games of the series but will replace forward Jakub Lauko to likely skate on the team's fourth line. The 34-year-old tallied 11 goals and 38 points on 142 shots on goal across 71 games this season, his 15th in the NHL. Defensemen Mason Lohrei and Parker Wotherspoon will also join the lineup while defenseman Matt Grzelcyk comes out. Fellow defender Andrew Peeke is listed as week to week with a finger injury suffered in Game 2 on Monday.

James van Riemsdyk Set To Return To Action On Saturday

Boston Bruins left wing James van Riemsdyk (illness) is expected to rejoin the lineup on Saturday against Philadelphia. He missed Thursday's contest versus Montreal due to an illness. The veteran winger has been quiet in recent weeks but has done reasonably well for the Bruins this season, collecting 38 points (11 goals, 27 assists) in 63 games. It's a special game for him on Saturday, as van Riemsdyk will be honored for his 1,000th career game in a matchup against his former team.

James van Riemsdyk Won't Play On Saturday

Boston Bruins left wing James van Riemsdyk will miss Saturday's clash versus Tampa Bay with an undisclosed injury. The veteran just had one of his best games of the season against Columbus with a three-point effort, but he will come out of the lineup for the second time in four games. He's posted 25 points (seven goals, 18 assists) overall across 35 appearances. Matthew Poitras, who has returned from the World Junior Championship, is projected to replace van Riemsdyk in the lineup and center the third line on Saturday.

James van Riemsdyk Penciled In For A Top-Six Role

Boston Bruins left wing James van Riemsdyk is set to start life in Beantown as a member of the top six. Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery has told Steve Conroy of The Boston Herald that he expects to pair Pavel Zacha with David Pastrnak, and van Riemsdyk will likely join the two at the start of the season. With retired duo Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci not available anymore, the other scoring line is set to feature Charlie Coyle with Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk. Van Riemsdyk had a very quiet year in 2022-23 with only 12 goals and 29 points in 61 games, but he will be nicely placed for a bounce-back season if he sticks with Zacha and Pastrnak.

James van Riemsdyk Back In Action Wednesday

Philadelphia Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk (undisclosed) will be back in the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers. The veteran was unavailable at the weekend against New Jersey but is good to go again after overcoming an undisclosed ailment. It's been a tough campaign for the 33-year-old, with van Riemsdyk tallying only nine goals and 23 points in 40 games across the season. He had only two points in nine February appearances and will certainly hope to do better this month. Fantasy managers can expect to see van Riemsdyk in the bottom six and on the second power-play unit Wednesday.

James van Riemsdyk Comes Out Of Flyers Lineup

Philadelphia Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk (undisclosed) won't play on Saturday against New Jersey, According to Flyers head coach John Tortorella, the veteran winger is a bit banged up. Hopefully sitting out one night will help van Riemsdyk to rediscover some scoring form, as he has added only four points to his tally across his past 15 appearances. For the season overall, van Riemsdyk is on nine goals and 23 points through 40 games. The Flyers also have Travis Konecny (upper body) unavailable, so Tortorella is forced to use a number of fresh faces in the top six.

James van Riemsdyk Records Four Points Sunday

Philadelphia Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk scored once and had three assists in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to Arizona. He formed a great one-two punch with Morgan Frost, who also finished with four points. The veteran winger set Frost up for his fourth goal of the season 2:09 into the second frame and Frost then returned the favor just a couple of minutes later. Travis Konecny and Owen Tippett also benefited from the work of van Riemsdyk and Frost. Van Riemsdyk is fresh back from a 20-game absence and these were his first points in three games since returning. He's now on three goals and six assists for the season with nine games played.

James van Riemsdyk Returns To Flyers Lineup

Philadelphia Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk (finger) has been activated from Injured Reserve and will be back in the lineup Wednesday against Washington. The 33-year-old underwent surgery back in October to fix a broken index finger and is finally ready to contribute again. Van Riemsdyk got injured after he had opened the campaign in very good form, posting two goals and three assists during a four-game point streak. Philadelphia doesn't have a lot of quality in attack, and van Riemsdyk should provide a nice boost for the team's offense as a top-six forward and a power-play threat.

James Van Riemsdyk Needs Surgery To Repair A Broken Finger

Philadelphia Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk is set to go under the knife later this week to repair a broken finger. He is expected to miss around a month of action. The veteran goal-scorer was injured Sunday against San Jose, after having enjoyed a very strong start to the season with two goals and three assists across five games. Three of his point came on the power play. With van Riemsdyk out of commission, there will be a lot of power-play time available for others, as the 33-year-old has averaged 3:09 of ice time with the man advantage this season.

James van Riemsdyk Scores Twice In Win Wednesday

Philadelphia Flyers left-winger James van Riemsdyk netted two goals on Wednesday night against the Seattle Kraken. The first goal opened the scoring just 4:44 into the game on the power play. The second was a clutch game-tying goal just seconds after Jeremy Lauzon made the game 2-1 for Seattle. It has been a nice run for the forward who now has points in five of his last six games. James van Riemsdyk has seven points and five goals during this run. That brings him up to seven goals and six assists in 30 appearances. It has not been a great season but the winger is starting to make up for lost time.

James van Riemsdyk Scores On Power Play Friday

Philadelphia Flyers left-winger James van Riemsdyk converted on a feed from Travis Konecny to score a goal on Friday night. The goal proved to be the game winner in the Flyers' 4-3 triumph over the Vegas Golden Knights. It has been a brutal season for the New Jersey native. The goal snapped an 11 game point drought that eroded his confidence. He now has three goals and seven points in 25 games this season. He is a long way off from his 43 point pace in 56 games last season. Considering his shooting percentage is still half of his normal percentage (5.8%), maybe the winger's fantasy upside starts to come to fruition.

James van Riemsdyk Adds Another Assist To His Tally

Philadelphia Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk dished out his 26th assist of the season on a Scott Laughton goal in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Washington. He is second to only Jakub Voracek in assists this season among all Flyers players. The Czech winger is also the only Philadelphia player with more points than van Riemsdyk. The 31-year-old is on 42 points with one more game left to play. The Flyers complete their season on Monday by hosting New Jersey, against whom van Riemsdyk has averaged a point per game in seven outings in 2020-21.

James van Riemsdyk Nets Two Goals In Flyers Win

The New Jersey natives markers came in the second and third periods. He has had a solid 2021 campaign producing 37 points in 46 Flyers contests.

James van Riemsdyk, Flyers Set To Start Firing Again

Philadelphia Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk has hit a wall in recent weeks, but he'll be in a perfect spot to regain his scoring form at the start of next week. The Flyers start the action with a pair of games against Buffalo on Monday and Wednesday. The Sabres will enter the week on a 17-game losing run during which they have allowed 4.18 goals per game. The Flyers themselves haven't done too great lately either, but with the likes of van Riemsdyk, Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux, they are full of scoring talent. Other forwards, such as Kevin Hayes and Jakub Voracek, who both are rostered by fewer than 50 percent of managers in Yahoo! leagues, are also nicely placed to put some points on the board early next week.

James van Riemsdyk Adds Three Points At Lake Tahoe

Philadelphia Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk factored in all of the team's goals in Sunday's outdoor game at Lake Tahoe, finishing a 7-3 loss to Boston with one goal and two assists. Sean Couturier had one goal and one assist, and Joel Farabee also scored for Philly. Van Riemsdyk, who played in a record seventh NHL outdoor game, has been crushing it so far this season, racking up eight goals and 21 points in 18 games with 33 shots. His shooting percentage is two times higher compared to his career average, so van Riemsdyk won't continue in the same form throughout the whole season, but he shouldn't be on the waiver wire anywhere right now, after registering four multi-point performances -- including a four-point game -- in his last six outings.

James van Riemsdyk Extends Point Streak With Goal

Philadelphia Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk bagged his sixth goal of the season in Friday's 2-1 loss to Boston, taking his current point streak to six games. Claude Giroux and Erik Gustafsson set him up for a power-play marker early in the third period. Van Riemsdyk finished the night with five shots, two blocks, and one hit. The former Leaf has had a very good start to the season, and he will be looking to add to his 16 points on Sunday versus Washington, against whom he has 20 points in 34 career games.

James van Riemsdyk Hands Out Two Assists

Philadelphia Flyers left wing James van Riemsdyk continued his good form with two assists in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to Boston. He combined with Travis Sanheim to set up Jakub Voracek for his third marker of the season and picked up one helper on a Joel Farabee goal. Kevin Hayes also scored for the Flyers and is now riding a three-game goal streak. Van Riemsdyk has a five-game point streak himself, during which he has averaged two points per game. The 32-year-old winger hasn't made much noise in fantasy hockey in recent years, but he's killing it right now and shouldn't be on the waiver wire in any league.

James Van Riemsdyk Continues Hot Start On Tuesday

Philadelphia Flyers forward James Van Riemsdyk collected another two goals to help guide his team to a 5-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. Both of Van Riemsdyk's tallies came on the man advantage and he also added a game-high seven shots on goal in 16:58 of ice time in the contest. Following one of the worst individual seasons of his career in 2019-2020 (40 point in 66 games), the 31-year-old is off to a scorching start thus far sitting at a point-per-game (five goals, two assists in seven games) to go along with four power-play points and 20 shots. Still available in 76% of Yahoo! leagues, fantasy owners would be wise to give JVR a look for at least the short-term.
