INJURY UPDATE: Jan. 3
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren updated the status of three injured players.
Matt Read: upper-body injury, game time decision tomorrow
Michael Raffl: concussion, out tomorrow and will be evaluated by our doctors when team returns
Erik Gustafsson: remains out with lower body injury. We expect Erik back in 7-10 days
Following the first period, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced that left wing Michael Raffl would not return due to a concussion.
Raffl suffered the injury midway through the first period after appearing in just eight shifts for a total of 4:27 of ice time.
He became the first Flyer to be officially named to an Olympic team when he was announced as part of the roster for Austria. Raffl had a goal in five games for Austria at last year’s World Championships.
