‘They’re still growing’: Seider, Raymond readying for second NHL seasons - NHL
“Just developing both on and off the ice,” the 20-year-old Raymond said. “I’m still young. I want to keep developing physically on the ice and trying to play my game. That will help me evolve.”
Raymond, drafted fourth overall by the Red Wings in 2020, describes himself as his own toughest critic.
“I think the most pressure comes from myself,” Raymond said. “I’m just trying to stick to my game and if I do that, it will lead to success.”
There’s something about the way Lucas Raymond carries himself and the way he plays that makes me very excited about his growth prospects. The sophomore campaign is usually a big adjustment for kids. I’m looking to see how they handle it.
