Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Promoted to top line
Phillips skated on the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Dylan Strome during Friday's practice, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.
Phillips had an impressive training camp and is among the only Capitals players to be producing offensively (one goal, one assist) in the first three games. Head coach Spencer Carbery appears to be putting his lines in a blender following a rough start with Phillips as the beneficiary. Fantasy managers in deeper leagues and daily formats may want to roll the dice on the 25-year-old Phillips when setting their lineups ahead of Saturday's action.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Haunts former team
Phillips scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and went plus-2 in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over the Flames.
Phillips' first game against his former team couldn't have gone much better, as he earned his first two NHL points in the contest. He got the Capitals on the board with a tally at 6:50 of the second period before seting up Connor McMichael just over three minutes later for the tying goal. Phillips appeared in just three NHL games with the Flames after being selected in the sixth round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The Capitals have given him a third-line role to begin this season, though fantasy managers may want to see if he can find consistency before considering him as a depth forward.... See More ...

Flames' Matthew Phillips: Sent down
Phillips was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Friday, according to the AHL transaction page.

Flames' Matthew Phillips: Inks new contract
Phillips signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Saturday.
Phillips led AHL Stockton last season with 31 goals and added 37 assists in 65 games. He was called up as one of the Flames' Black Aces during the playoffs. The undersized winger's impressive scoring pace should earn him a long look in training camp, but the two-way nature of his deal suggests he'll spend at least part of the campaign in the bus league....

Phillips was placed on waivers by the Flames on Sunday.
Phillips made his NHL debut in the regular-season finale for the Flames last year. The 23-year-old will begin the season with AHL Stockton if he goes unclaimed on waivers. A strong start in the minors could vault him to the top of the list for call-up candidates if the Flames need forward reinforcements.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Phillips: Snags two-way contract
Phillips penned a one-year, two-way deal with Calgary on Friday.

Phillips (undisclosed) won't be included on Calgary's 31-man playoff roster, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Phillips impressed in the AHL this season, notching 15 goals and 33 points in 38 games, but he was never expected to make the Flames' playoff roster.

Phillips (undisclosed) was unable to participate in Sunday's practice, Scott Cruickshank of The Athletic reports.
The reason behind Phillips' absence remains unclear, as he's been a full participant during training camp until this point. It could be just a maintenance day off for the 22-year-old, but it's likely his status won't be updated until he returns to practice.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Phillips: Back in action with AHL Stockton
Phillips (kneecap) will return to action in AHL Stockton's game Saturday.
Phillips missed about a month and a half after he required surgery to repair a fractured kneecap. The 21-year-old was better than a point-per-game pace with the Heat prior to the injury (30 points in 28 outings). Phillips will likely be sheltered at first, but if he can get back into form, he could be a candidate to jump to the parent club if the Flames need forward depth late in the season.... See More ...

The 5-foot-7 forward will undergo surgery to repair his kneecap. Phillips was having an outstanding season with AHL Stockton, as he's racked up 14 goals and 30 points over 28 games, but this injury could reasonably end the 21-year-old's campaign.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Phillips: Assigned to minor-league affiliate
Calgary reassigned Phillips to AHL Stockton on Friday.
Matthew Tkachuk (upper body) returned to action Thursday against Toronto, so the Flames are no longer in need of Phillips' services on the wing. The 21-year-old will continue to be one of the first skaters the big club turns to when dealing with injuries up front, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.... See More ... See Less
Flames' Matthew Phillips: Gets promotion to Flames
The Flames recalled Phillips from AHL Stockton on Tuesday.
Phillips compiled 38 points over 65 games last year, but it appears he made major improvements during the offseason, as he's totaled nine goals and 16 assists over 22 contests this year. The 21-year-old has always had a scoring knack, as he piled up 136 goals over 214 games in Canadien juniors, but his 5-foot-7 frame may have scared some teams off, with the Flames selecting him in the sixth round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. It's unsettled if he'll make his NHL debut during this stint.... See More ... See Less
