Raffl left Saturday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Raffl left the game after being hit to the head and then he collapsed on the bench while trying to make it to the dressing room. It was a scary scene for the Flyers’ winger but he was reportedly feeling better after the game and may not be seriously injured as originally we thought.

Raffl (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Raffl skated on a line with Scott Laughton and Wayne Simmonds during the morning skate and is expected to be in the lineup tonight. He has missed the last eight games with a lower-body injury that he suffered on November 4th. Despite success on the top-line before getting injured, Raffl will start on the second line if he returns tonight.

Raffl (lower-body) expected to practice on Tuesday, could play as early as Saturday.

Raffl will miss his eighth straight game on Monday, but he is expected to be back on the ice tomorrow morning and head coach Craig Berube called him a “possibility” for Saturday. He got off to a nice start to the season, scoring six goals in his first 12 games, so his return to lineup would balance out the Flyers’ attack.

Raffl will replace Brayden Schenn on the flyers top line Saturday.

The Flyers are off to a slow start at 0-2 so they have shaken up all three of their top lines in search of more offense. Whoever is playing with Giroux and Voracek is bound to produce at a higher level but Raffl is not a great fantasy option because his job on the top line may be short lived.

The Flyers inked the Michael Raffl to a two-year extension after Saturday's 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues. His cap hit will be $1.1 million.

Raffl played more than he usually does after Steve Downie got hurt in the first period this afternoon. He has nine goals and 12 assists (21 points) in 56 games this season. Raffl has good speed and can also play a strong defensive-minded game. He's played on all four of the Flyers' lines this season and has excelled on the penalty kill. The $1.1 million AAV is a very friendly cap hit for the Flyers, but the contract has firmly cemented Raffl in the club's plans at the NHL level next season.

Raffl is out with a concussion.

Raffl was concussed with about three minutes left in the first period after what appeared to be a legal check from Colorado winger Gabriel Landeskog. “He won’t play next game,” said coach Craig Berube, referring to Saturday’s game against the Coyotes. Berube rotated wingers on the top line using Steve Downie, Brayden Schenn and Zac Rinaldo to work with Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek, so we won't know who moves to that line until practice or tomorrow's morning skate.
