Villach – Monday, November 30, 2020, 9:50 p.m.
The 31-year-old received the clearance for the mission from the Philadelphia Flyers in good time on Monday evening. The striker will strengthen his hometown club for around two weeks in the ICE Hockey League and gain some match practice before he goes back to the USA for the start of training for the new NHL season – which is scheduled to start on January 1st.
“At the beginning the negotiations were a bit difficult. But the longer the break lasted, the happier they were that I could gather match practice again,” reports the Villacher-born on the negotiations with his NHL franchise in a VSV Facebook video .
“The derby will depend on the little things. A derby is a derby, at least it was like that nine years ago. I don’t really know the level, I’ve been away from the league for some time. But I watched the Reds’ last game They have a very compact team with a lot of good Austrians, it looked very good. It will be a fight, “said Raffl about the derby.
