Raymond, 26, is coming right off a two-year $5.1 million contract with the Canucks, giving him an annually around $2.55 million a year. Within this past year, the forward has scored 10 goals and 10 assists over a 55 game span.

The hockey superstar from his hometown of Cocrane, Alta. has scored 70 goals and 156 career points over the span of his 328 career games. Raymond was drafted 51st overall by the Canucks in 2005, while his best year was in 2009-10, when he played a full seasons worth of games with an impressive 25 goals and 28 assists.
