This is the first time I see Raymond live on the ice and there is no doubt that this is a phenomenal player. He has a fantastic speed and agility combined with a great puck handling and creativity. Those attributes makes him hard to catch for defenders and also gives him time in Powerplay even though it is SHL. He handles tight situations very well and looks really calm with the puck even though he had some unexpected puck loses today (One of them in front of the net where he had a good scoring opportunity). Raymond has a hard and fast wrist shot (No shot on goal but 2-3 shots outside). He has great hockey sense and sees the ice very well and he always seems to know where the opponents and teammates are on the ice and therefore is ready for what is coming. His hockey knowledge is good and he knows when to play easy and straight. He tries to be playable for his teammates and he does not hide himself on the ice. Raymond is well balanced and handles the physical part with excellence. In his own zone there where some long shifts where he and his teammates where standing still but overall he does his job in his own zone and his forechecking is good. Raymond is a player that I really like and he will be a great asset for the NHL-team that picks him during this summer. I think he will get picked somewhere between 3 to 5 in the 1st round in the Draft 2020.
