In Red Wings Land
Detroit selected Lucas Raymond 4th overall last night. Make sure to check out our coverage from last night as well as our continuing draft coverage today.
4. Detroit Red Wings - Lucas Raymond, LW, Frolunda (SWE)
NHL Central Scouting: No. 4 (International skaters)
The 18-year-old scored 10 points (four goals, six assists), had 32 shots on goal, and averaged 9:48 of ice time in 33 games in the Swedish Hockey League in 2019-20. Raymond (5-11, 170) has a nose for the net and has shown himself to be a tremendous asset on the power play and penalty kill. The right-hand shot is the type of player who doesn't wait for the play to happen, but one who creates opportunities.
Interesting. We’ll see if this is a realistic date as we get a little closer.
The NHL and NHLPA have jointly announced a revised target start date of Jan. 1 to begin the 2020-21 season.
