The contract begins with the 2021-22 season. This does not preclude him from appearing in North America – either with the Red Wings or the Grand Rapids Griffins – at some point this season, simply that he would need to sign an additional amateur try-out contract to do so.
Raymond had put up 18 points in 34 games for Frolunda of the SHL this season before a shoulder injury sidelined him in February.
