After his rookie season in 2016-17 as a 19-year-old, Konecny posted two comparable seasons of 47 and 49 points respectively, scoring 24 goals each time. In 2019-20, he bettered his previous point totals significantly, scoring 61 points in 66 games, and yet again, finishing on 24 goals (if he hits 24 again this season that has to be some sort of record). Konecny’s upward trajectory only seems to be increasing to start 2020-21.

A night after getting routed, Brian Elliott gave the Flyers exactly the skillful, steady performance they needed - with a little luck, too. The veteran goalie made 40 saves and was twice helped by the post in his 41st career shutout, Travis Konecny scored his fourth goal in four games and the Flyers beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-0 on Tuesday night. Jakub Voracek also scored and Kevin Hayes added an empty-netter for Philadelphia, which bounced back from Monday night's 6-1 loss to the Sabres.
