Detroit Red Wings rookie Lucas Raymond just keeps getting better and better.
The 19-year-old winger scored his ninth goal and team-leading 21st point of the season in overtime against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday, wheeling with the puck all the way from his own zone into Buffalo’s end before firing a wrister past Sabres goaltender Dustin Tokarski.
Dylan Larkin and Filip Hronek picked up the helpers on Raymond’s first career game-winning goal, which came just 26 seconds into overtime to seal a 3–2 Red Wings victory.
Here’s the video of the goal, as posted to Twitter by the official National Hockey League account:
Everybody loves Raymond. ❤️

Carter Rowney and Pius Suter also scored for Detroit, which improved to 10–9–3 with the victory. Dylan Cozens and Jeff Skinner tallied for the 8–10–3 Sabres.
Detroit outshot Buffalo 41–28 in Saturday’s game. The Red Wings will look to build on their current two-game winning streak when they take on the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Nov. 30.
