Michael Raffl scored and picked up a rare assist in the Flyers 7-4 win on Saturday.

Raffl has nine goals and two assists in 24 games this season. He is seeing time on the first line during five-on-five situations with Claude Giroux and Jakob Voracek but has seen only 10:29 minutes on the power play all season so his fantasy value takes a bit of a hit.

Michael Raffl scored a goal in Philadelphia's 5-4 shootout loss on Wednesday.

Michael Raffl saw time late in the game on the top line with Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux.

Raffl started the game with Scott Laughton and Wayne Simmonds but coach Craig Berube was not happy with the play of Brayden Schenn on Friday so he made the switch in the third. "I like Brayden Schenn there, I just didn’t like it tonight so I tried Raffl there at the end," Berube said. "That’s obviously an option. Raffl is a guy I went to in the past and it’s worked." If Raffl sees time on the first line then his fantasy value should soar.

Michael Raffl suffered a lower-body injury when he blocked a shot on Tuesday.

Raffl was hurt midway through the third period, but he managed to complete his shift and got in one other shift before the game ended. For now he should be regarded as day-to-day, but the Flyers expect to know more soon.

Michael Raffl led the Flyers to a 4-2 win over the Red Wings on Saturday night with three points.

Raffl’s first goal in the third period broke the 1-1 tie, then he sealed it with an empty-netter. He also assisted on Nicklas Grossmann’s first goal of the season in the second period. The 25-year-old Raffl offers moderate offensive upside, with five points in eight games now, though he has only 16 shots on goal. Brayden Schenn had the other goal. Michael Del Zotto and Jakub Voracek chipped in with two assists apiece.
