Michael Raffl was not protected by Philadelphia for the expansion draft.
Raffl generated just 11 points in 52 games last season after he had 31 points in 82 matches in 2015-16. However, goaltender Michal Neuvirth or forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare may interest the Golden Knights more than Raffl. Jun 20 - 11:50 AM

Michael Raffl has now spent 10 games playing on the top line with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek.

The Flyers have won every game over that span with Giroux and Voracek playing a major role in Philadelphia's surge. "My back is really sore from carrying G and Jake. It wears me down," joked Raffl. Offensively Raffl hasn't seen a significant spike in production on the line as he has three goals and an assist in 10 contests. Voracek praised Raffl for his strength on the puck and physicality. As long as Voracek and Giroux are able to produce with Raffl on the ice, that line is likely to stay intact.

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."
