Raymond has been released by the Ducks after being placed on unconditional waivers Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Raymond appeared in four games this season but recorded just three shots on goals and was a minus-2 while averaging 8:55 of ice time per night, not exactly the type of numbers to inspire confidence in fantasy owners or front office execs. If he goes unclaimed, the 31-year-old will be free to sign with any NHL team or even head abroad to continue his career.
Raymond was sent down to the minors Saturday, James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports. The Ducks waived Raymond this past Monday, but elected to keep him on the active roster once they saw he went unclaimed. Since he was sent to the minors Saturday, though, this might be a sign that Rickard Rakell is drawing closer to game action after addressing a visa issue.
Raymond was placed on waivers by Anaheim on Monday, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports. Raymond played in all three games so far this season for the Ducks, but his performance apparently didn't impress. It's currently unclear if any other teams are showing interest.
Raymond signed with the Ducks on Monday, Dean Molberg of the Fan 960 reports. The terms of the deal are still announced, but it appears the 30-year-old will have a chance to provide veteran depth on the wings for an Anaheim squad with several unproven talents currently rostered at the same positions. Although, Raymond's most recent stint in Calgary went over poorly, as he only ended up playing a total of 86 games over those two seasons.
Raymond will be bought out by the Flames after being placed on waivers Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Raymond's final year in Calgary has been an abject disaster as he saw action in a mere 29 games, scoring five points in those outings, before being sent down to AHL Stockton. Considering the 30-year-old went unclaimed off of waivers when he was demoted to the minors, it would be surprising if a team picked him up now. Once the winger's buyout is complete, he could find a team that wants to snatch him up on the cheap.
