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.
He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
