Raymond, 19, was only added to protocol on Boxing Day. The rookie forward has 10 goals and 28 points in his first 31 NHL games with Detroit.
Erne, 26, is a bruising winger who has three goals and nine points in 30 games this season. He and Oesterle, a 29-year-old depth defenseman, were both added to COVID-19 protocol on Dec. 21.
Leddy, 30, was added to protocol at the same time as Raymond, on Dec. 26. He is the only Red Wings player who remains on that list as the team prepares to return to action on Dec. 31 against the Washington Capitals.
