Thomas Raffl (born June 19, 1986) is an Austrian professional ice hockey winger who is currently playing with EC Red Bull Salzburg of the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL). He previously played for Luleå HF of the Swedish Hockey League. He is the older brother of NHL player Michael Raffl.
Since 2007, Thomas has been a fixture participant with the Austrian national team, including at the 2015 IIHF World Championship. In the lead up to the 2015–16 season, Raffl was granted leave by Salzburg on September 1, 2015, to attend the preseason training camp of the NHL's Winnipeg Jets on a professional tryout contract. Following the training camp, Raffl signed a one-year, one-way contract with the Jets and was assigned to the Manitoba Moose, the Jets' American Hockey League affiliate.
During the 2015–16 season with the Moose, Raffl was unable to maintain his offensive presence, producing just 5 goals in 31 games. Unable to earn a recall to the NHL, at the conclusion of the season, Raffl was not tendered a contract by the Jets and was released to free agency. On July 11, 2016, Raffl returned to Salzburg of the EBEL, signing a one-year deal.
