Raymond joins Modano in the record books

This kid has to be the Calder Trophy fave, right?


The NHL's leading rookie scorer has dazzled once again.

Detroit Red Wings forward Lucas Raymond collected his eighth goal of the season tonight against the St. Louis Blues, beating goaltender Ville Husso with a sneaky shot that went five-hole:

And with that goal, Raymond has earned himself a spot in both the Red Wings' record books and the NHL's record books.

With that point, his 20th of the season, Raymond joins Red Wings icon Steve Yzerman as only the second teenager in team history to score 20 points in his first 20 NHL games. Oh... and if you didn't know that Yzerman guy had a pretty decent career. The fact that Raymond is on Yzerman's trajectory has to get you excited if you're a Wings fan.

Incidentally, Raymond also tied another former Red Wing, albeit one who accomplished much more elsewhere during his NHL career, in the NHL's all-time record book.

Raymond tied Hall of Famer Mike Modano as the 11th teenager in the last 35 years to record his 20th career point in 21 games or fewer.
