The Anaheim Ducks will sign left-wing Mason Raymond according to Calgary’s Fan 960 radio. The contract is a one-year two-way deal worth $675,000 NHL / $225,000 AHL according to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

Raymond played with the Vancouver Canucks from 2007-08 through the 2012-13 season. He played with Toronto in 2013-14. He played the last two seasons in Calgary scoring 28 total points(16G + 12A) in 86 games. Last season he was assigned to the AHL Stockton Heat in February playing 15 games, recording 15 total points(6G + 9A). Calgary eventually bought out his contract.

Analysis

He did play for Randy Carlyle in Toronto during the 2013-14 season. Prior to that he played with Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa in Vancouver. Raymond is likely to play a bottom six role in Anaheim’s offense. He did score 19 goals and record 45 total points under Carlyle in Toronto. He hasn’t performed as well since then, but might be a low-risk high-reward player for Anaheim. He has good skating speed and ability to score, but he is also inconsistent.
