Raymond signs, Canucks avoid arbitration
Two-year deal for Mason Raymond, Vancouver Canucks to avoid arbitration.
The Vancouver Canucks announced Monday they have re-signed forward Mason Raymond to a two-year contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. However, multiple media outlets report Raymond will make $2.5 million this season, and $2.6 million in 2011-12.

Raymond, 24, appeared in all 82 games for the Canucks last season and had 53 points (25 goals, 28 assists). He tied for second on the team in power-play goals (8) and established career highs in all offensive categories.
 
In 203 NHL games, all with Vancouver, Raymond has 45 goals, 52 assists and 74 penalty minutes.
 
The 6-foot, 185-pound forward was originally drafted by Vancouver in the second round (No. 51) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.
Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
