The Philadelphia Flyers have announced that they
have assigned Oliver Lauridsen (D) and Michael
Raffl (F) to the Adirondack Phantoms, according
to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren.
The moves today bring Adirondack's training camp
roster to 34 players entering their two preseason
games this weekend.
Oliver Lauridsen, 24, appeared in three preseason
games for the Philadelphia Flyers. Last year he
played in 15 games with Philadelphia scoring two
goals and one assist while accumulating 34 penalty
minutes. The "Great Dane" received his
first ever NHL call-up in late March and made
his Flyers debut on March 30, 2013 against the
Boston Bruins and then scored his first career
NHL goals on April 23 and April 25.
"Ollie" played in 59 games with the
Phantoms in 2012-13 during his second season of
professional hockey scoring one goal and five
assists with 77 penalty minutes. The Genofte,
Denmark native also represented his country in
the IIHF World Championships this past May. He
was a third-round pick of the Flyers in 2009 out
of St. Cloud State (MN).
Michael Raffl, 24, is a native of Villach, Austria
who played in four preseason games with Philadelphia
as he enters his first professional season in
North America. Several teams sought Raffl partly
based on his performance with Austria in the IIHF
World Championships in May where he had two goals
in seven games including a goal and an assist
vs. Russia. He signed an entry level contract
with the Flyers on May 31, 2013.
Raffl has played seven full seasons in Austria
and Sweden compiling a total of 312 games, 101
goals, 100 assists and 201 points. The past two
seasons he has played in Allansvenskan, the second-highest
league in Sweden. Last year with Leksands IF in
that league he played in 49 games scoring 24 goals
and 22 assists for 46 points with 40 penalty minutes.
