Red Wings’ Raymond Named NHL ‘Rookie of the Month’ for November

NEW YORK (Dec. 1, 2021) – Detroit Red Wings left wing Lucas Raymond, who led all rookies with five goals, seven assists and 12 points in 14 games, has been named the NHL’s “Rookie of the Month” for November.

Raymond, who was selected fourth overall in the 2020 NHL Draft, edged Red Wings teammate Alex Nedeljkovic (6-2-1, 2.24 GAA, .934 SV%) Anaheim Ducks center Trevor Zegras (4-5—9 in 11 GP), New Jersey Devils center Dawson Mercer (3-6—9 in 13 GP), Toronto Maple Leafs left wing Michael Bunting (3-6—9 in 14 GP) and Boston Bruins goaltender Jeremy Swayman (5-2-0, 2.30 GAA, .914 SV%) for the honor.

Raymond found the scoresheet in nine of his 14 November appearances, including a trio of three-game point streaks: Nov. 4-7 (2-3—5), Nov. 13-16 (1-3—4) and Nov. 20-27 (2-1—3). The 19-year-old Gothenburg, Sweden, native registered his first career three-assist performance Nov. 6 at BUF and scored his first career overtime goal Nov. 27 vs. BUF, making him the second teenager in Red Wings history to accomplish the latter feat – after Steve Yzerman on Oct. 26, 1983, also vs. BUF.

Raymond, who joins teammate Moritz Seider (October) as a “Rookie of the Month” winner this season and is the only rookie who currently leads his team in scoring, tops NHL rookies in goals (9), assists (t-12), points (21) and power-play goals (3) through 23 total appearances in 2021-22.

The Red Wings are the first NHL team with different “Rookie of the Month” winners in consecutive months since the Toronto Maple Leafs in December (Auston Matthews) and January (Mitchell Marner) of 2016-17.
