  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Will miss some time

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Removed from COVID-19 protocols

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Designated for COVID-19 protocols

    Raffl was placed in the league's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Raffl joins seven other Stars' players in the league's protocols which should raise some doubts regarding the team's upcoming matchup with Colorado on Wednesday. Considering Raffl has just one goal, along with four assists, in 24 appearances this year, he shouldn't be expected to offer much fantasy value.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Puts up assist Monday

    Raffl notched an assist in Monday's 7-4 win over the Wild.

    Raffl set up Miro Heiskanen with a cross-crease pass for an insurance tally in the third period. The 33-year-old Raffl continues to play an important defensive role on the third line, and he's managed to collect eight points, 32 shots on net, 48 hits and a minus-4 rating in 28 contests.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Ends goal drought

    Raffl scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Sharks.

    Raffl broke up James Reimer's shutout bid at 8:26 of the third period. It was Raffl's first goal since Oct. 19. The 33-year-old is up to seven points, 30 shots on net, 45 hits and a minus-3 rating in 24 contests. While he saw a top-six role Saturday, he's more frequently played on the third line this year.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Ready to rock

    Raffl (illness) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game versus Vegas, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Raffl is expected to return to a third-line role following his one-game absence. The 33-year-old winger has picked up six points through 21 contests this campaign.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Out due to illness

    Raffl will be sidelined versus the Coyotes on Monday with a non-COVID-19 illness, Bruce LeVine of Dallas Stars Radio reports.

    Raffl is stuck in a 17-game goal drought during which he's garnered just three assists, so few fantasy players are likely to be impacted by his absence. In his stead, Tanner Kero could be back in the lineup for the first time since Nov. 2 against Winnipeg.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Provides two shorthanded helpers

    Raffl notched two shorthanded assists, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Blues.

    Raffl was the setup man to Roope Hintz, who became the first Stars player to score a pair of shorthanded goals in a game since the team moved to Dallas in 1993. The 32-year-old Raffl has been a modest contributor on offense with six points, 21 shots on net and 31 hits through 16 games. He'll likely continue to play in a middle-six role for much of the season, but his fantasy value will be limited to deeper formats.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Registers helper

    Raffl notched an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames.

    Raffl set up a Blake Comeau tally late in the second period. The assist ended a five-game point drought for Raffl, who now has two goals and two helpers in 10 appearances. The Austrian forward has added 13 shots on net, 23 hits, four PIM and a minus-3 rating while serving mainly in a third-line role in his first year with the Stars.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Goals in consecutive games

    Raffl scored a goal and added five hits in Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win over the Penguins.

    Raffl got the Stars on the board with just 10 seconds left in the first period. That was the only goal the team could muster against Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry. Raffl has played well to begin the year, logging three points, 13 hits, five shots on goal, four PIM and a plus-3 rating in four games. With many of the Stars' other forwards struggling, Raffl could be worth a look as a short-term option in fantasy.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Gets first goal for new club

    Raffl collected a goal on two shots and had four PIM in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Ottawa. He also levied five hits and had a plus-2 rating.

    Raffl opened the scoring just 4:34 into the game, tapping home an Alexander Radulov centering feed for his first goal in a Dallas uniform. Raffl, a longtime Flyer who was dealt to Washington at last year's trade deadline, skated on the left side of Dallas' line with Radek Faksa and Denis Gurianov. That's a unit that should be able to chip in offensively for the Stars, but none of the three has particularly high fantasy upside.

  • Stars' Michael Raffl: Secures one-year contract

    Raffl signed a one-year, $1.1 million deal with Dallas on Thursday.

    Raffl figures to slot into a bottom-six role with the Stars while also pushing for the 20-point mark. The Austrian winger will certainly add some grit and physicality given he registered 71 hits in 44 games for Washington and Philadelphia last year.

  • Capitals' Michael Raffl: Nets first goal since trade

    Raffl registered a goal on four shots and dished out three hits Tuesday in a 2-1 win over Boston.

    Raffl potted the game-winner with 1.8 seconds left in the third period, roofing a shot past Boston netminder Jeremy Swayman from a near-impossible angle along the goal line. It was Raffl's first goal in 10 games since being acquired from Philadelphia at the trade deadline. The 32-year-old had entered the regular-season finale with just two assists as a Capital.

  • Capitals' Michael Raffl: Two helpers in Monday's win

    Raffl picked up two assists in Monday's 6-3 win over the Rangers.

    The Caps needed some lesser lights to step up with the forward ranks thinned for various reasons, and Raffl responded with his first points in six games for the team. Between Washington and Philly this season, the 32-year-old has three goals and 10 points through 40 contests.

  • Capitals' Michael Raffl: Expected to debut Thursday

    Raffl (upper body) is on track to make his Capitals debut Thursday against the Islanders, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Raffl is expected to skate on Washington's third line versus the Isles. The veteran winger notched eight points in 34 games with Philadelphia before being dealt to the Capitals at the trade deadline.

  • Capitals' Michael Raffl: Cleared for contact

    Head coach Peter Laviolette indicated Raffl (upper body) was cleared to resume taking contact, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Laviolette went on to suggest that Raffl was an option for Thursday's showdown against the Islanders, but a return date has not been finalized. The 32-year-old is expected to serve in a depth role after being acquired from the Flyers at the trade deadline, and his fantasy upside remains fairly limited as a result.

  • Capitals' Michael Raffl: Skates in non-contact jersey

    Raffl (upper body) is on the ice in a non-contact jersey for Tuesday's morning skate, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Raffl's clearly making progress in his recovery, but his Capitals debut nonetheless doesn't appear to be imminent. Another update on the veteran winger should surface once he's cleared for contact.
