It hasn’t even been one full season, but the Philadelphia Flyers like what they’ve seen from Michael Raffl.
So much so, that on Saturday the Flyers announced a two-year contract extension with a $1.1 million cap hit for the 25-year-old left winger. It’s a nice raise from the $925,000 in annual average salary – that’s according to Capgeek.com – he is going to get from his current one-year deal with the Flyers.
Raffl was never drafted, and he spent five seasons in Austria and Sweden before making the move to North America. In 57 games with the Flyers, he has scored nine goals and 21 points.
He played just over 13 minutes for the Flyers in their 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Blues earlier in the day.
