Raffl (abdomen) will miss 10-to-14 days, per GM Ron Hextall, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Raffl left Tuesday's contest against the Blackhawks with the injury. A no-frills winger who's been improving offensively in each subsequent season, the 27-year-old managed one goal in three games to start the new campaign. His extended absence could pave the way for rookie Travis Konecny to vault into the top six, though such an arrangement has yet to be confirmed.
