Lucas Raymond scuffles with former teammate

No love lost between these two former Detroit teammates.



Detroit Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond made the decision to keep playing after his team's season came to a close after having just barely missed out on a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, representing his native country of Sweden in the 2024 World Championship in Czechia. 

He would finish the annual tournament by tallying four goals and five assists in the 10 games he played in, helping Sweden ultimately claim the bronze medal - their first medal since their consecutive gold wins in 2017 and 2018.

But it was a matchup between Sweden and Czechia that saw Raymond lose patience and ultimately scuffle with a former Red Wings teammate of his in Dominik Kubalik. As you may remember, it was Kubalik who played one season with Detroit in 2022-23 before being shipped to the Ottawa Senators in the deal that brought Farmington Hills native Alex DeBrincat to Detroit last summer. 

Kubalik, who tallied twice in Czechia's 7-3 victory over the Swedes, had to be separated from Raymond in the dying minutes of the contest after they both had a physical exchange of ideas: 

Both players were slapped with unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. Not long after, Kubalik would help Czechia capture the gold medal with a win over Switzerland.
