Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed left wing Mason Raymond.
Raymond, 26, collected 20 points (10-10-20) in 55 games played with Vancouver in 2011.12. He also appeared in five post-season games, recording one point (0-1-1). The Cochrane, Alberta native has registered 156 career points (70-86-156) over the span of 328 NHL games. He was awarded the Fred J. Hume Award as the “Canucks Unsung Hero” in 2010 and was appointed to the NHL YoungStars Sophomore Team in 2009.
reports are $2.75M for one year
from Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver Province,
The Canucks decided Wednesday that they’ll hang onto Mason Raymond.
Raymond, who turns 27 in September, is coming off a tough season – 10 goals and 20 points in 55 games – after suffering a serious back injury a year ago in the Stanley Cup final against Boston.
The Canucks filed for rarely used cut-down arbitration on the lightning fast winger, with the intention of reducing the $2.6 million in salary he made last season on a new one-year deal.
The move allows the club to take Raymond off the market on July 1 when he was due to become a restricted free agent. They can ask an arbitrator to cut Raymond’s salary in his new contract by as much as 15 per cent, to $2.21 million. There is no ceiling on such an award, though it’s hard to see Raymond getting a raise.
from Ian MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun,
Vancouver Canucks forward Mason Raymond rejoined teammates on the ice here Tuesday for the first time since suffering a compression fracture in his back on a hit by Boston Bruin Johnny Boychuk in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final.
Raymond, who spent most of the summer in a back brace, emphasized there is no time frame for his return to National Hockey League action. But the winger felt good enough during Tuesday’s hour-long workout to participate in drills that involved contact.
“It’s good to be here,” Raymond said. “It’s been a long time. It’s the first time on the ice since the incident. To get out there with everybody else, see a few smiles … it felt good. It has been a lot of hard work. June 13: that date sticks in my head. Tonnes of rehab, doing things twice a day, doing everything I could to get myself better. You work for moments like this. Today is another stepping stone.”
From James Mirtle at the Globe & Mail:
The NHL’s acting disciplinarian, Mike Murphy, confirmed Tuesday that Boston Bruins defenceman Johnny Boychuk will not be suspended for his hit on Canucks winger Mason Raymond in the opening seconds of Monday’s Game 6.
According to Canucks GM Mike Gillis, Raymond “sustained a vertebrae compression fracture” on the play and is expected to miss three to four months.
Murphy said via email that the league’s hockey operations department reviewed the play but deemed it an “awkward collision” and not worthy of a suspension.
“[It was an] awkward collusion between two players battling for space/room,” Murphy wrote. “[You] rarely see a player bumped when in the position Raymond was in (bent over forward).”
Vancouver, B.C. – President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that forward Mason Raymond sustained a vertebrae compression fracture. He is expected to be out of the lineup for 3-4 months.
Raymond will be available to the media at a later date.
Sportsnet (headline on their hockey page) is reporting sources are telling Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy that Vancouver Canucks forward Mason Raymond suffered a fractured vertebrae while Darren Dreger of TSN writes,
The Vancouver Canucks were very upset that there was no penalty call on the play where Mason Raymond was injured on the first shift of the game.
Canucks general manager Mike Gillis stormed out of the TD Garden after Game 6, questioning a lot of people as he headed toward the Canucks’ bus as to whether or not anyone saw the puck near Raymond when he was hit by Johnny Boychuk.
Watch the NBC broadcast of the hit…
Mason needed assistance to get off the ice.
added 9:11pm, Mason has been transported on a stretcher to a local Boston hospital.
Another spin-o-rama goal in the shootout and a victory for the Canucks.
What you don’t see is the Islanders goaltender chirping at Mason after the shootout goal. And ths via Chris Botta tweet,
Kevin Poulin on Mason Raymond’s spinarama goal in the shootout: “It’s a show-off move.”
Hopefully, a video with better quality will come out soon.

from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
The Canucks won 4-3 on a bizarre OT goal from Mason Raymond but for most of the night they almost all looked as though they could have used a long, hard slurp of the best energy drink on the market.
We all know the Colorado Avalanche young players skate well and can put some pressure on you but the Canucks are supposed to be Cup contenders.
And yet after four days off they spent more than half the night back on their heels examining just how good a goaltender Roberto Luongo can be after all this nonsense about Cory Schneider perhaps making something of a goaltending controversy in Vancouver.
While Schneider has been good in his two home starts against easy opposition, the listless Canucks made Lui produce an excellent performance to get only his second win of the year, and if the team plays like that in front of him very often every W in his column is going to be a tour de force.

This morning’s three cheers for those that shined in yesterday’s action:
***Cheers to Anaheim’s Corey Perry, who broke a 2-2 tie late in the third with his third goal of the season to lead the Ducks to a win over Phoenix. Perry also managed an assist in the game and was a plus-3 for Anaheim, who got 36 saves from goaltender Jonas Hiller in victory. Speaking of…
