Rafflcopter, Great Dane head North

At least one half of the burning "who will get the final roster spot as a forward" question has been answered. On Friday afternoon, the Flyers announced that Michael Raffl was assigned to the Adirondack Phantoms.

Despite neither Raffl nor Scott Laughton apparently distinguishing themselves for a spot in the NHL for the first game next Wednesday, the Austrian winger was the first to be shipped up to Glens Falls. The club is expected to make their final roster transactions by Sunday.

Also heading up I-87 will be defenseman Oliver Lauridsen, who had distinguished himself with a strong end to last season.

You get the feeling this won't be the last we'll see of either player in Philadelphia this season.
