However, according to Yzerman, Raymond isn’t going to be playing with the Red Wings any time soon.

“He’s playing in Sweden – my understanding of the rules, I don’t think he’d be eligible to come play for us this year,” Yzerman said. “I don’t see it realistically, I think – even if we could, it’s still early. I would assume he’ll play the entire season in Frolunda.”
