Michael Raffl was upset with himself when he was a healthy scratch Friday.

Raffl was back in the lineup Saturday and played like he used to as he was a plus-two on the night. "One of the reasons I got scratched was because I was trying to do too much," he said. "I wasn't being the guy I should be which is a 200-foot guy...If you aren't good enough, the other guys are ready to play too and you have to respect your teammates. You have to figure out what you did wrong and fix it or do stuff even better and that did give me an extra push out there."

Look for Michael Raffl to replace Brayden Schenn on Philadelphia's top line for the time being.

Based on Friday's practice it looks as if Raffl will skate alongside Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds for the Flyers' first three games while Schenn sits out a suspension for a hit he administered in last season's playoffs. Adjust your lineup accordingly for the first week of the regular season.

Michael Raffl scored in Wednesday's 2-0 win over New Jersey.

Raffl extended Philadelphia's lead to 2-0 with his goal in the second period. The 27-year-old is entering his fourth season with the Flyers. He isn't much a fantasy option, but he has put together some respectable seasons. Two years ago, Raffl managed to find the back of the net 21 times.
Sep 28 - 10:42 PM

Michael Raffl found the back of the net in Philadelphia's 6-1 loss to the Washington Capitals in Game 3 Monday night.

It was Raffl's first career playoff goal in his 10th postseason contest. He scored just 57 seconds into the game to give Philadelphia the early edge, but obviously the Flyers couldn't hold onto it. It is worth adding that the two teams remained within a goal of each other until the third period when the Capitals broke loose with four consecutive power-play goals. Brandon Manning and Sam Gagner each registered an assist on Raffl's goal.
Apr 18 - 10:00 PM

Michael Raffl scored a goal and two assists in Sunday's 5-2 win over the New York Islanders.

Raffl isn't known for his offensive ability, but with regulars like Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier being rested in a meaningless game, he was the one to step up. Raffl scored the game-winning goal in the second period and he picked up assists on third period goals by Scott Laughton and R.J. Umberger. Raffl finishes the season with 13 goals and 18 assists. The Flyers will open the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Washington Capitals.
Apr 10 - 10:07 PM

Michael Raffl scored two goals in a 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Raffl opened the scoring early in the first period and added his second of the game and 12th of the year seven minutes into the second period. The 27-year-old has 12 goals and 25 points in 68 games this year. He finished the evening with an impressive stat line consisting of a plus-2 rating, five shots on goal, one hit, and one blocked shot.
Mar 15 - 10:41 PM

Michael Raffl has extended his stay with Philadelphia to the tune of $7.05M over three years, with no extra clauses or bonuses attached.

That's a $2.35AAV, in case you're wondering. Raffl has posted eight goals and 17 points in 61 games this season. The 28-year-old forward has not provided much production for fantasy, scoring just 38 goals and 67 points in 196 career NHL games. But he'll still provide quality depth for a team in need of some.
Feb 28 - 12:24 PM

Michael Raffl scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

Raffl gave the Flyers a 2-1 lead at the 3:15 mark of the third period. Shayne Gostisbehere and Scott Laughton picked up the assists on Raffl's goal. He has eight goals and 15 points in 57 games this season.
