Alain Vigneault has never been one to shy away from controversy, and Travis Konecny has found that out the hard way. Charlie O’Connor confirmed that Konency would be a healthy scratch when the Philadelphia Flyers take on the New York Islanders.
Konecny is fourth on the Flyers with eight points through eight games, two of which came with the man-advantage. Konecny has posted a negative Corsi ratio and production metrics despite getting 58.5% of his starts in the offensive zone. Vigneault noted that Konecny hasn’t been what they need him to be at five-on-five, and those metrics could explain the benching. Konecny’s absence should create room for Jacob Voracek on the top line. Voracek is already an integral part of the first powerplay unit and carries a $6,600 salary on FanDuel.
The Flyers are -120 on the moneyline against the Islanders. FanDuel Sportsbook has the total set at 5.5 with the under juiced to -120.
