Flyers' Keith Yandle: Vintage performance Sunday

Yandle dished out two helpers -- one on the power play -- in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins. Yandle's best playmaking days are well behind him, but the 35-year-old defenseman turned back the clock in this one, assisting on a pair of goals by Noah Cates. Even after this performance, Yandle's 19 points plus whatever more gets in the last week of the season will be the fewest he's scored in a campaign since racking up only 12 as a rookie with the Coyotes back in 2007-08.

Sitting Keith Yandle was the right move by Philadelphia Flyers

There’s not a whole lot to defend about this Philadelphia Flyers season. From terrible results on the ice to the message being sent to their fans, the whole organization probably wishes it could hit a giant “do-over” button for 2021-22. One thing they shouldn’t take blame for, however, is the decision by interim head coach Mike Yeo (which possibly came from above) to sit defenseman Keith Yandle for Saturday night’s game, ending his all-time NHL consecutive games played streak at 989. In short, the Flyers owe Yandle nothing, and his play on the ice didn’t dictate that he had to be kept in the lineup.

Keith Yandle Deserved Better

It’s no secret that this year has been super disappointing. The Flyers came into the season with high expectations after trading for Ryan Ellis, Rasmus Ristolainen, and Cam Atkinson. One of the other offseason moves was the signing of veteran defender Keith Yandle, who was within striking distance of breaking the NHL “Iron Man” record of most consecutive games played.

For the first time in more than a decade, Keith Yandle will be watching his team play rather than suiting up. Philadelphia Flyers coach Mike Yeo said on Saturday morning that Yandle will be a healthy scratch for the team’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, ending his ironman streak of consecutive games played at 989.

Flyers’ brass benches NHL iron man Keith Yandle in ‘tough decision’

On Saturday the Flyers unceremoniously ended Yandle’s streak at 989 games to roll with their new initiative...

Flyers' Keith Yandle: Healthy scratch ends Ironman streak

Yandle was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Leafs. It ended his NHL-record consecutive games played streak at 989 games. He last missed a regular-season game on March 22, 2009 when he was a member of the Coyotes. Yandle has been a bad option on the ice and in fantasy this season, but saw plenty of game time to this point because the team has been so bad. Phil Kessel is in hot pursuit for the Ironman streak -- he has 968 consecutive games played.
