    Phillips was on the ice with the Capitals for practice Monday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

The 25-year-old Phillips has made 28 appearances for the Caps this season in which he has five points while averaging 10:04 of ice time per game.

  • Penguins' Matthew Phillips: Picked up off waivers

    Phillips was claimed off waivers by the Penguins from the Capitals on Friday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Phillips' placement on the waiver wire may have been poorly timed after Pittsburgh found out Jake Guentzel (upper body) was going to be out of action for four weeks. With the inexperienced Valtteri Puustinen and Johnny Gruden currently filling out bottom-six roles for the Pens, the 25-year-old Phillips could be immediately pressed into service against the Canadiens on Saturday.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Draws into lineup

    Phillips will play on the fourth line Thursday against the Panthers, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

  • Capitals' Matthew Phillips: Dishes helper Thursday

    Phillips registered an assist while logging 11:40 of ice time during Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Stars.

    Phillips has managed just two assists in his last 14 games and has served as healthy scratch in recent weeks. With T.J. Oshie (upper body) nearing a return and Max Pacioretty (achilles) possibly returning before the end of the month, Phillips will need to jump-start his offensive game in order to continue garnering regular ice time.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Sent down

    Phillips was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Friday, according to the AHL transaction page.

  • Flames' Matthew Phillips: Drops to AHL

    Phillips was reassigned to AHL Calgary on Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Phillips' move to the minors may be a short one -- after also sending down Radim Zohorna, the Flames have no healthy extra skaters on the roster. They play Friday versus the Blues, so it's possible Phillips could be back on the NHL roster within a day.
