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.
Raffly scored the game-winning goal Tuesday during the Flyers' 2-0 win over the Canadiens in Game 4.
Early in the first period, Raffl took a drop pass from Sean Couturier and rifled his only shot of the game into the top corner past Carey Price, and it was all the offensive support Carter Hart would need. After scoring a surprising two points in the Flyers' seeding round robin opener, Raffl missed the next four games with an undisclosed ailment, but the 31-year-old checking winger returned to the lineup for Game 3 on Sunday before making his mark in Game 4. He's highly unlikely to continue producing at a point-a-game pace, but the playoffs are the time for unlikely heroes.
Raffl (undisclosed) skated 13:52 with five hits and a shot on goal in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Canadiens in game 3.
After a four-game absence, Raffl didn't appear to be limited in his return. He was one of three Flyers with five hits Sunday, along with Travis Konecny and Sean Couturier. Raffl has produced two points, six hits, three shots and a plus-2 rating in two postseason outings. He will likely play in a bottom-six role going forward.
Raffl (undisclosed) will play in Sunday's Game 3 contest against Montreal, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com reports.
Raffl has been out since Aug. 2, when he scored a goal and two points against the Bruins. The 31-year-old winger will add some scoring touch back to the Flyers' bottom-six.
Raffl (undisclosed) will not be in the lineup against the Habs for Game 2 on Friday, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.
While he remains on the shelf, Raffl did get onto the ice for warmups per Adam Kimelman of NHL.com, which indicates he could be back in action soon, perhaps as early as Sunday's Game 3. Once cleared to play, the winger could slot back into a third-line role and would likely bump Tyler Pitlick from the lineup.
Raffl (undisclosed) won't play in Wednesday's Game 1 against Montreal, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
The 31-year-old was already expected to miss a significant portion of time with the undisclosed issue, so this news isn't quite surprising. With Raffl sidelined, look for Nicolas Aube-Kubel and Tyler Pitlick to assume the fourth-line wing spots. The timetable for Raffl to return to action still remains uncertain at this point.
Raffl (undisclosed) is set to be sidelined for a while according to coach Alain Vigneault, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Vigneault wasn't able to provide a specific timeline for Raffl's recovery but he will officially miss at least the team's matchup with Washington on Thursday. With the winger unavailable, Joel Farabee will slot into Raffl's spot on the fourth line. Prior to getting hurt, Raffl registered one goal, one assist and two shots in 10:35 of ice time against Boston on Sunday.
Raffl (undisclosed) left Sunday's game against Boston, and there was no update on his status after the contest, Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Raffl took a spill into the boards after he was hit by Jeremy Lauzon late in the third period. Until head coach Alain Vigneault provides another update, he'll be considered day-to-day ahead of Thursday's round-robin clash with Washington.
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.
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.
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.
Raffl (upper body) will return to the lineup Friday against the Penguins, NHL.com'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.
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.
Raffl (upper body) is a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup versus the Penguins, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com 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.
Raffl suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's game versus the Kings, Bill Meltzer of NHL.com 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.
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.
