The Vancouver Canucks filed 'cutdown' arbitration with forward Mason Raymond on Wednesday, instead of making a qualifying offer.
Last season, Raymond made $2.6 million and the arbitrator may not award a salary less than 85% of that amount or $2.21 million.
It's a Club Elected Salary Arbitration for players who were making more than $1.5 million per season.
Last season, Raymond had 10 goals and 10 assists for 20 points in 55 games.
He was slated to become a restricted free agent on July 1.
