Michael Raffle ends the 2020/21 NHL season in a new team: The 32-year-old Carinthian was handed over to the Washington Capitals by the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday shortly before the transfer time expired. Raffle has played no fewer than 504 games in eight seasons with the Flyers since May 2013. There are more games in Philly dress-up than, for example, club legend Eric Lendros. Washington is the second stop for the NHL Rafale.
For the striker, this means an opportunity to fight for the Stanley Cup in the qualifiers. In social networks, Rafel was greeted with great praise as an athlete and as a human being. “As long as Raffle, we’ll miss you” is just one of many. In return, the Flyers received a fifth round of hats. Raffle’s contract, who scored 81 goals and 79 assists for the Flyers, would have expired after this season.
Raffl doesn’t have to say goodbye to his teammates for long: Hats are hosting Team Flyers on Tuesday. Raffle has scored three goals and five assists this season in 34 games this season.
The capitals have already consolidated with Anthony Mantha of Detroit Red, wings another striker. In contrast, they abandon Jacob Vrana and Richard Bannick and Detroit will also have a selection for the first round in 2021 and one in the second round in 2022. The hats will be played in front of the public again from April 27.
