The 27-year-old left wing spent his entire career with the Vancouver Canucks after being selected in the second round (No. 51) of the 2005 NHL Draft. He had 10 goals and 12 assists in 46 games for Vancouver last season.
In 374 games, Raymond has 80 goals and 98 assists. He has eight goals and 10 assists in 55 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
It's a tribute to him, and everything he's done and deserved is coming to fruition tonight with his jersey in the rafters. He's going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
