The Calgary Flames have signed forward Mason Raymond to a three-year contract. Financial details were not revealed, but it is worth $9.5 million, according to multiple media reports.

Raymond enjoyed a bounce-back season in 2013-14 with the Toronto Maple Leafs, scoring 19 goals and 45 points in 82 games. Those statistics were his best since his 2009-10 season with the Vancouver Canucks, when he established career highs with 25 goals and 53 points.

The Alberta native was selected by the Canucks in the second round (No. 51) of the 2005 NHL Draft. After spending the first six seasons of his career with Vancouver, Raymond signed a one-year contract with Toronto on Sept. 23, 2013.

"I’m a little lost for words to be honest. It’s a surreal feeling," Raymond said, according to Calgary's Twitter feed. "The opportunity to play for the Flames has always been something I've dreamed of. For this to become reality is something special."

In 456 NHL games, Raymond has 99 goals, 223 points and 140 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
