Flyers lose Raffl for six-to-eight weeks


The Philadelphia Flyers made a lot of news on Wednesday, and that’s not exclusive to the Valtteri FilppulaMark Streit trade.

GM Ron Hextall also re-signed Michal Neuvirth and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare to two-year extensions, but there was also some bad injury news: Michael Raffl is out for six-to-eight weeks, as CSN Philly’s Tim Panaccio reports.

Panaccio indicates that the lower-body injury could specifically be knee-related.

So, the bad news is that Raffl’s season looks just about over if the Flyers fail to make the playoffs. Not needing surgery is a bright spot, however.

This continues what’s been a rough year for Raffl, who generated 11 points in 52 games for the Flyers.
