Raymond is an elite offensive talent that has the right hockey IQ to play a strong two-way game. He is a very high-end skater that excels in all areas of skating from having the ability to make short, quick cuts to possessing a top speed that blows most out of the water and terrific edges that he uses to elude defenders offensively. He has a fantastic speed and agility combined with a great puckhandling and creativity, which makes it hard for defenders to keep up with him. A high-motor player who keeps his feet moving in every situation and capitalizes on his elite hockey sense and skating in all situations. His shot is very good, as he locates it well and he gets it off quickly. The power behind his shot is sometimes inconsistent but that should be improved with added strength as he physically matures. His passing ability is crisp and accurate. He can make virtually any pass in the offensive zone, filtering the puck towards the net in the process. His defensive game is predicated on being aggressive and getting his stick into passing and shooting lanes and he excels at taking the puck away with stick lifts and closing out players on loose pucks. He isn’t an overly physical player, but he doesn’t shy away from contact in the corners. With some added size, he should be able to win more board battles than he already does because of his stick-skills. With his hockey sense and offensive skills, he ticks all the boxes.
