Report: Detroit Red Wings potential draft target will not play in NHL in 2020-21

The hope was that the Detroit Red Wings would finally catch some luck in the NHL Draft lottery and land the No. 1 overall pick but as we know, that was not the case at all. In fact, the worst-case scenario happened and the Red Wings are now stuck with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.

Steve Yzerman will have a tough decision to make with the Red Wings are on the clock as a handful of names have been mentioned as potential targets at No. 4.

One of those players Yzerman is potentially interested in is RW Lucas Raymond.

Raymond is touted as a forward who is “silky smooth” with “great vision.”

But according to reports, if Yzerman does select Raymond at No. 4, there is no chance at all of seeing him in a Red Wings jersey in the 2020-21 season as he is currently under contract in the SHL that will not allow him to move to North America.

Nation, is Raymond a player Yzerman should be targeting?
