Flyers send Raffl, Lauridsen to AHL Adirondack

The Philadelphia Flyers on Friday reduced their training camp roster by sending two players to the American Hockey League.

Heading to the Adirondack Phantoms are left wing Michael Raffl and defenseman Oliver Lauridsen.

Lauridsen, a 2009 seventh-round pick (No. 196) made his NHL debut last season, totaling two goals and an assist in 15 games. He was a minus-1 with 14 penalty minutes in three preseason games.

Raffl, a 24-year-old free agent signed by the Flyers in May, was a minus-1 with four shots on goal in four preseason games. He had 24 goals and 46 points in 49 games with Leksand in Sweden's second division last season.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
