  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: Another two-point showing

    Sedlak logged two helpers in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Islanders.

    Sedlak picked up an assist on Travis Sanheim's shorthanded tally in the first period before assisting on Kevin Hayes' goal later in the frame. That's now consecutive two-point games for Sedlak who's up to seven points (two goals, five assists) in 22 games this season. The 29-year-old forward has found a role in Philly's bottom six since being claimed from Colorado in October.

  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: Two points in Saturday's loss

    Sedlak scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and logged two hits in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders.

    Sedlak was on a line with Kevin Hayes and Joel Farabee as John Tortorella tried to mix things up yet again. That trio clicked, but the rest of the Flyers' offense went dormant in the team's 10th straight loss. Sedlak hadn't registered a point during the skid prior to Saturday, and he's now at two goals, three helpers, 28 shots on net, 34 hits, 22 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in 21 contests between the Flyers and the Avalanche this year.

  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: Finally nets long-awaited tally

After starting the season with the Avalanche, Sedlak recorded his first Flyers tally in eight outings. He also added three shots and two hits against the Blues.

  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: Can't finish contest

    Sedlak (undisclosed) left Saturday's game versus the Senators late in the third period, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Sedlak didn't have much time to return when he left the contest, so the severity of his injury isn't known.

  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: First points since return from KHL

    Sedlak set up two goals Saturday in a 4-3 overtime loss to Carolina.

  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: Makes Flyers debut

    Sedlak dressed for his first game and helped the Flyers to a 3-1 victory over the Predators on Saturday.

    Sedlak, who spent the past three seasons with Chelyabinsk of the KHL, received another chance to establish himself at the NHL level. The 2011 sixth-round draft pick previously went pointless in three appearances with the Avalanche before being claimed off waivers Friday. Sedlak opened Saturday on the fourth line, centering Nicolas Deslauriers and Tanner Laczynski, and generated three shots. Before venturing to the KHL, Sedlak collected 15 goals in 162 games with the Blue Jackets (2016-19).

  • Avalanche's Lukas Sedlak: Goes on waivers

    Sedlak was put on waivers Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Sedlak could be heading to the minors if he clears. He has chipped in one shot on goal, four blocks and five hits in three games this season. Sedlak is still searching for his first point as a member of the Avalanche.

  • Flyers' Lukas Sedlak: Flyers claim off waivers

    Philadelphia claimed Sedlak off waivers from Colorado on Wednesday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Sedlak had no points, four blocks, and five hits in three games with the Avalanche while averaging 7:42 of ice time. The Flyers claiming him keeps Sedlak in the NHL for now, but he's likely to continue to serve in a strictly fourth line role.

  • Avalanche's Lukas Sedlak: Quiet in Calgary

    Sedlak had one hit and won one of five faceoffs over 6:44 of ice time in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Flames.

    Sedlak centered the fourth line for a second consecutive game. He's averaged 7:48 TOI through the first two contests, and more than a third of his playing time Thursday was spent on the penalty-kill unit. Sedlak is likely keeping the spot warm for Darren Helm, who is getting close in his return from an undisclosed injury.

  • Avalanche's Lukas Sedlak: Signs one-year deal

    Sedlak agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Colorado on Monday.

    Sedlak spent the last three seasons playing in the KHL for Chelyabinsk, registering 57 goals and 64 assists in 164 games. During his previous NHL stint with the Blue Jackets, the 2011 sixth-round pick managed just 27 points in 162 contests. If he does make the Opening Night roster next season, the 29-year-old center will almost certainly fill out a bottom-six role for the Avs and may need to serve as a healthy scratch periodically.

  • Lukas Sedlak: Rights retained by Columbus

    Sedlak received a qualifying offer from Columbus ahead of Tuesday's deadline, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.

    Sedlak has already inked a two-year contract to play in the KHL, but this move allows the Blue Jackets to retain his rights should Sedlak one day return to North American hockey.

  • Lukas Sedlak: Joins KHL club

    Sedlak agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Chelyabinsk Traktor (KHL) on Friday.

    Sedlak spent much of the 2018-19 campaign watching from the press box as a healthy scratch for the Blue Jackets. In total, the center saw action in just 47 contests, in which he secured four goals, two assists and 43 shots while averaging a mere 9:00 of ice time. The Czech's last appearance for Columbus came March 19 versus Calgary. Considering his lack of minutes, it shouldn't come as a shock to see the 25-year-old move overseas. The team will almost certainly issue Sedlak a qualifying offer this summer if only to retain his player rights should he ever want to return to the NHL.

  • Blue Jackets' Lukas Sedlak: Spoils Vasilevskiy's shutout bid

    Sedlak found twine in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Lightning.

    Just when it seemed like Andrei Vasilevskiy would end up skating away with his third straight shutout, Sedlak crashed the crease and went five-hole on the elite tender. The 25-year-old rookie has four goals, two assists and a minus-2 rating through 42 games.

  • Blue Jackets' Lukas Sedlak: Healthy scratch against Blues

    Sedlak was a healthy scratch for Saturday's loss to the Blues.

    He had just one point (a goal) in his prior 12 games with a minus-2 rating, so it's not a surprise that coach John Tortorella elected to give veteran faceoff specialist Mark Letestu a look on the fourth line in Sedlak's place. The 25-year-old will have minimal fantasy value even if he does work his way back into the lineup quickly.

  • Blue Jackets' Lukas Sedlak: Gets physical against Sens

    Sedlak recorded a team-high four hits in Monday's win over the Senators.

    He also added two PIM, two blocked shots and a shot on net. The checking forward had been a healthy scratch the prior five games, but with Nick Foligno away from the team due to a family matter, Sedlak got back into the lineup and took his pent-up frustrations out on Ottawa. The 25-year-old only has three points (one goal, two assists) through 26 games, so even if he does avoid the press box going forward, he's not much of a fantasy asset.

  • Blue Jackets' Lukas Sedlak: Grabs first point of season

    Sedlak manufactured an assist during Thursday's 4-1 win over San Jose.

    Sedlak earned his first point of the year by providing a helper during Thursday's win over the Sharks. Sedlak is not an option for fantasy, as he's deployed in a bottom-six role with no power-play time.
