According to TSN, Calgary native Mason Raymond has got off to a solid start for the Toronto Maple Leafs this season heading into Tuesday's matchup where the Maple Leafs host the red hot Anaheim Ducks.
Since being acquired by the Maple Leafs as a free agent on September 23, 2013 from the Vancouver Canucks, Raymond, who plays left wing and right wing, has registered eight points in nine games. During that time he has notched four goals and four assists and has three multi-point games. He has had a goal and two assists in a 5-4 shootout win over the Ottawa Senators on October 5, two assists in a 6-5 overtime win over the Edmonton Oilers on October 12 and two goals in a 4-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on October 15.
It will be interesting to see if Raymond's impressive start to the season will continuie however. With David Clarkson about to return to the Maple Leafs' lineup after being suspended ten games, Raymond might be moved to the third line on a regular basis.
The Maple Leafs are currently 6-3 and are one point back of the Detroit Red Wings for first place in the newly formed Atlantic Division. The Maple Leafs have their work cut out for them tonight however as Toronto is facing an Anaheim squad that has won seven straight games.
