The Vancouver Canucks on Monday re-signed forward Mason Raymond, avoiding an arbitration hearing. Terms of the deal were not released, but TSN is reporting it's a one-year, $2.275 million contract.
The 26-year-old left wing had 10 goals and 10 assists in 55 regular-season games. He missed the first two months of the season recovering from a broken vertebrae suffered in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
A 2005 second-round pick of the Canucks, Raymond has 70 goals and 86 assists in 328 regular-season games, and 16 points in 51 playoff games.
They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
