Dueling Videos: Seider vs All-Star Candidate Lucas Raymond in Juggling

Lucas Raymond scored in a 4-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres to end a 14-game goal slump

Firstly, you can still cast your ballot today and tomorrow for Lucas Raymond to become an NHL “Last Man In” All-Star. Secondly, this seems like the right time to show you Raymond’s puck-juggling talents. Consequently, you can see how he measures up to his fellow Red Wings rookie teammate Moritz Seider.

For example, we’ve shown you Seider’s puck magic in the past. We’ll include his performance again because that will provide the chance to compare so you can choose Seider or Raymond.

The hand-eye coordination is impressive. It’s like a rapid-fire shot release. It’s Brett Hull-like. In addition, Raymond scored last night. It was his first goal since Dec. 1. However, he has one goal and nine assists over his past 13 games. That should certainly help his All-Star Game chances.

For purposes of comparison, here’s a look at their respective juggling talents:

In case you were wondering, Seider and Raymond are friends.

Fans can vote at or or via a mobile ballot on the NHL app. To clarify, all 32 NHL teams are represented with a player on the ballot. Further, one player will be selected from each conference. Therefore, Raymond is competing for a spot only with the other Atlantic Division players.
