Raymond to attend Maple Leafs training camp on professional tryout contract

LONDON, Ont. - Mason Raymond will attend Toronto Maple Leafs training camp on a professional tryout contract.

The 27-year-old left wing spent the last five-plus seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. He has 80 goals and 98 assists in 374 career NHL games.

Raymond, who confirmed the tryout in a text message to The Canadian Press, could fill a need for the Maple Leafs on the third line, where they have a hole after trading Matt Frattin to the Los Angeles Kings in the trade that sent goaltender Jonathan Bernier to Toronto.

Raymond counted US$2.275 million against the Canucks' salary cap last season, in which he had 10 goals and 12 assists.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
