After signing his entry level contract with the Red Wings, it seems Lucas Raymond will be heading to North America for the 2021-22 season.
Raymond spent 2020-21 in the SHL with Frolunda, but injuries kept him from finishing out with stronger numbers (6 goals and 12 assists in 34 games played). However, to anyone that actually watched Raymond (Or at least his highlights), he is the most talented winger in Detroit’s system.
Considering his age and lack of production this past year, on paper Raymond seems as though he might need a little more time to develop in the minors. But with raw talent as immense as his, there is a chance Raymond could not only vie for a roster spot next year, but find a spot among on the top line at just 19 years old.
