Detroit Red Wings rookie Lucas Raymond scores first NHL goal: Watch this

Detroit Free Press

There was a bit of a question as the NHL preseason ended when it came to the Detroit Red Wings roster.

Should Lucas Raymond make the team? 

The 2020 first-round draft pick eventually did, as the team has been starving for goal-scoring for the last few years. 

On Tuesday, Raymond began providing just that. 

In the third period of a scoreless game against the Blue Jackets at Little Caesars Arena, Raymond got the puck from a dropoff by captain Dylan Larkin and let a shot rip from the right circle. It beat goalie Joonas Korpisalo for the 19-year-old’s first NHL goal.
