Report: Leafs, Raymond have one-year, $925,000 deal in place (Updated)

Mason Raymond

Mason Raymond might be at Toronto’s training camp on a professional try out, but there are rumblings he’s already got a deal.

Raymond, 27, reportedly has a one-year deal worth $925,000 in place with the Leafs, according to Sportsnet’s Hockey Central panel.

“My understanding is, if he makes the team, there’s a deal in place,” ex-Columbus GM Doug MacLean said. “I never did a pre-arranged deal [like] that, but I never had of this guy’s calibre come in [on a PTO].

“My understanding is he’s at $925,000. The deal will be $925,000.”

Raymond, who spent his entire six year career in Vancouver before the Canucks let him walk this summer, is a former 25-goal scorer that scored 22 points in 46 games last season.

He has ties to Leafs general manager Dave Nonis -- as Canucks GM, Nonis drafted Raymond in 2005 -- and is coming off a season in which he had to accept a pay decreased after Vancouver filed for “cutdown” arbitration last summer.

In related news, Raymond survived Toronto’s first round of camp cuts on Friday.


According to TSN’s Darren Dreger, Raymond’s agent -- JP Barry -- says there is no deal in place with the Leafs.
