The Flyers have loaned forward Michael Raffl to Villacher SV of the ICE Hockey League in Austria. Similar to the prospects, it’s so he can play during break and before the NHL resumes.
Michael Raffl had been a strong forward for the Flyers over the last couple years. Lets just hope he doesn’t like it more in Australia than he does here in the States.
The NHL is going to have some trouble starting a new season because of all the Canada teams. Unless they do the bubble again, they can’t have these teams in Canada.
Now for some facts about Villacher SV of the ICE Hockey League in Austria. Villacher SV were founded in 1923 in Villach, Australia. They have one championship in the 1980-81 season.
Good luck Michael!
