Flyers' Michael Raffl: At 20 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl had eight goals and 20 points with a minus-2 rating in 58 games prior to the NHL suspending the season because of coronavirus.

He's never been much of a scorer, but Raffl was contributing in all categories with two goals, four points, a plus-5 rating and six PIM in the 11 games before the NHL halted the campaign. With three more points, Raffl will have his most points since the 2015-16 season.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Posts shorty in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl scored a shorthanded goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

The Flyers hopped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period thanks to two power-play goals and Raffl's shorthanded tally. This is the 31-year-old Raffl's first shorthanded goal of the season and the third of his career. He doesn't produce a ton, but he's already matched last year's 18-point mark through 54 games.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Produces helper Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl posted an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 3-0 win over the Red Wings.

Raffl set up Scott Laughton for the opening tally in the second period. The assist snapped a four-game drought for Raffl. He's at 13 points, 46 shots and 56 hits through 42 contests. The 31-year-old doesn't project to help out many fantasy owners with his limited production.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (upper body) will return to the lineup Friday against the Penguins,'s Wes Crosby reports.

Raffl missed Philadelphia's Jan. 21 matchup with Pittsburgh due to an upper-body injury, but he was always expected to be available following the All-Star break. The 31-year-old Austrian, who's notched 12 points in 39 games this campaign, will skate with Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek on the Flyers' second line Friday.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: No-go against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (upper body) won't play Tuesday against the Penguins.

The Flyers will be off until Jan. 31 following Tuesday's tilt, so Raffl will likely only be forced to miss one contest due to his upper-body injury. With Raffl on the shelf, German Rubtsov will draw into the lineup against Pittsburgh.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Game-time decision Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (upper body) is a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup versus the Penguins, Bill Meltzer of reports.

Raffl picked up this injury during Saturday's win over the Kings, but the 31-year-old was able to skate on the second line during Monday's morning skate. It wouldn't be a surprise if Raffl takes warmups Tuesday before an official decision is made. The Flyers recalled German Rubtsov in case Raffl is unable to suit up against the division rival.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Picks up injury Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's game versus the Kings, Bill Meltzer of reports.

It's unclear how the injury occurred. Raffl skated 16:16 in Saturday's contest and didn't appear to be laboring through his shifts. Per Meltzer, coach Alain Vigneault expects an update on Raffl's status in the coming days. The Flyers are back in action Tuesday against the Penguins.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Buries fifth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl scored a goal on three shots, dished three hits and added four PIM in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blues.

Raffl provided a goal at 15:43 of the second period. The Austrian has 12 points, 41 shots on goal and 53 hits in 37 games. He's at only eight PIM -- Raffl usually plays with the rules of the sport pretty well, but he's taken three minor penalties in his last two games in an unusually undisciplined run.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Sets up game-tying goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl recorded an assist and a team-high four hits in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Capitals.

Raffl found Robert Hagg for the tying goal at 19:18 of the first period. He's now picked up points in consecutive games after scoring in Tuesday's loss to the Hurricanes. Raffl is up to 11 points, 46 hits and a minus-7 rating through 34 appearances. He missed 10 contests with a broken finger, but the 31-year-old Austrian could reach the 20-point mark at his current pace.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Posts fourth goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl scored a goal and posted three shots with a hit and block during a 5-4 loss to the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

That was Raffl's first goal since Oct. 26, but actually, he's been rather solid considering his expectations this season. Raffl is playing a little bit more per game than last season, and as a result, he's averaging more shots on goal and points per game. He already has four goals, which puts him just two shy of last season, and Raffl has played only 33 games. He also has 10 points with a minus-8 rating, 35 shots, 42 hits and 15 blocks this season.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (finger) skated 10:40 and dished one hit in Sunday's 2-1 overtime win over the Ducks.

Raffl missed 10 games with the injury and returned in a fourth-line role. He has nine points and a minus-4 rating through 29 appearances this season -- fantasy owners in standard formats can find more reliable depth scoring elsewhere.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (finger) was activated from injured reserve and will play in Sunday's road tilt against the Ducks.

Raffl has been out since Dec. 3 after breaking his finger but is ready to get back to action Sunday. The 31-year-old forward has nine points in 28 games and will return to a bottom-six role.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Targeting Dec. 29 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (finger) is optimistic he will be ready to play Dec. 29 versus Anaheim, the first day he is eligible to come off long-term injured reserve, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Raffl will have missed 10 games due to his finger problem if he suits up against the Ducks. The winger registered nine points in 28 outings this season in a bottom-six role. The emergence of Morgan Frost certainly won't improve the 30-year-old Raffl's chances of moving up in the depth chart any time soon.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers placed Raffl (finger) on long-term injured reserve Wednesday.

Raffl is expected to be sidelined for four weeks with a fractured finger, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The recently recalled Mikhail Vorobyov will likely get the first crack at replacing Raffl on the Flyers' fourth line.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Suffers fracture Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl suffered a broken finger in Tuesday's win over Toronto and is expected to be out about four weeks.

Raffl was forced to leave Tuesday's contest in the second period. The hope with the approximate timeline is that the 31-year-old can return to action ahead of schedule, and head coach Alain Vigneault specified the injury is a broken pinky finger on Raffl's right hand. As long as the veteran is out, Chris Stewart stands to be the main beneficiary to draw into the lineup.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Experiencing dry spell
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl has one assist with zero goals and a minus-4 rating in the last 12 games.

He didn't have a sizzling start, but Raffl posted three goals and five points with a plus-3 rating in the first nine games of the season. It's been the complete opposite since then despite Raffl receiving considerably more playing time. Raffl has three goals and seven points with a minus-6 rating in 24 games this season.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Has three goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl has three goals and six points with a minus-3 rating in 13 games this season.

The 30-year-old is off to a strong start with three goals already in 2019-20. He only had six in 67 contests last season, but Raffl has scored his three goals behind a 16.7 shooting percentage. That's almost five percent higher than his career norm and likely unsustainable through the whole season. Owners shouldn't expect Raffl to continue his fast start unless he begins getting more pucks to the net.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Good to go Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Raffl (lower body) will play in Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Raffl hurt his foot blocking a shot during Thursday's win over the Blackhawks, but the injury isn't serious enough to keep him out. The 30-year-old winger will continue to play on the fourth line, where he has four points -- three in a single game -- and 13 shots on net through eight contests.

October 25, 2019 07:48 PM
Flyers' Michael Raffl: Likely available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher says Raffl (lower body) is likely to play in Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Raffl was unable to complete Thursday's game against the Blackhawks after blocking a shot, but it appears it won't be a major issue for the 30-year-old. Raffl has four points in eight games this season, and if he plays, it will likely be in his familiar fourth-line role.

Flyers' Michael Raffl: Limps off late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raffl (lower body) limped off the ice late in Thursday's win over the Blackhawks after blocking a shot, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Per Carchidi, Raffl underwent X-rays and more testing following the game, but the team doesn't believe the injury is serious. The 30-year-old didn't show up in the box score much Thursday, registering just one shot in 10:11 of ice time. The Flyers should have more updates regarding the injury in the coming days, but consider Raffl to be day-to-day for the time being.
