“Carter is an elite skater,” Raider general manager Curtis Hunt described Massier. “We feel he can support our club in all dimensions of the game and we’re excited to get him here.”

Horon, who joined the Raiders after being acquired in a trade with the Seattle Thunderbirds in the 2019-2- season, played 63 games in a Raider uniform. This season he had struggled a bit offensively, mustering just two assists in 8 games so far.
