More Player Notes in the Draft (Dec 9)

The Calgary Flames are joining the Week Ten parade of long-term injury returns, as they have activated forward Mason Raymond from the IR on Tuesday, making him available for their contest against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.  Raymond has been out since the end of October with a shoulder issue and has now been given the green light to jump back into the lineup at full speed.  Heading back down to the minors to make room for Raymond is non-pool forward Sven Baertschi.

At the time of the injury, Raymond was cruising along quite well, scoring 7 points in 10 games, which is the kind of offense Leo will need to see his team jump back into the prize fray in the pool.  Leo goes into Tuesday's action in 14th spot, only 9 points out of the top 10 and now 31 points out of the money.
