Raffl is listed on the Flyers' training camp roster, indicating his loan with Villacher SV of Austria's ICE Hockey League is over, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Raffl was always expected to be recalled prior to training camp, and this makes it official. He had 20 points in 58 games last season and should be expected to compete for a bottom-six role in 2020-21.
The Flyers have loaned Raffl (ankle) to Villacher SV of Austria's ICE Hockey League. Raffl played through an ankle injury toward the end of Philadelphia's playoff run, but the fact that he's being loaned to Villacher SV suggests he's fully recovered from that issue. He'll be recalled ahead of the Flyers' training camp, but at this point there's no telling when that might be. The 31-year-old winger picked up eight goals and 12 assists in 58 games with the Flyers last season.
Raffl is recovering from a high ankle sprain, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports. Raffl came back and played in the final two games of Philadelphia's second-round series against the Islanders, so although he's obviously not 100 percent healthy, there's no reason to believe he won't be fully recovered in time for next season's training camp. The 31-year-old winger notched 20 points in 58 regular-season contests before adding four goals and a helper in nine postseason matches in 2019-20.
Raffl scored a goal on three shots and was plus-3 with five hits in Thursday's 5-4 double-overtime win over the Islanders in Game 6. Raffl's rebound goal with 6:39 left in the second period tied the game at 3-3. It was the first point of the series and fourth goal of the playoffs for the 31-year-old, who patrolled the left wing on Philadelphia's fourth line with Nate Thompson and Nicolas Aube-Kubel.
Raffl scored a goal and doled out five hits in Friday's 3-2 win over the Canadiens in Game 6. Raffl restored a two-goal lead for the Flyers at 4:26 of the second period. Nick Suzuki got the Canadiens' within one in short order, but Raffl's goal would stand as the game-winner. In four appearances during the series, the 31-year-old forward had two goals, 12 hits and a plus-1 rating. He's at four points through five postseason outings overall.
