October, 2012- Lapoint has informed the Reading Royals that he intends to retire from professional hockey. Rich Dillon


February, 2012 – LaPoint is a mobile defenseman with a little offensive skill.  He is in his first year as a professional, following a solid career at the University of North Dakota, currently with the Reading Royals in the ECHL.  He was released by Florida shortly before training camp.


Fantasy Outlook: D

His release from the Panthers is obviously not a good sign, but there still is a slight chance of an NHL career as a 6th or 7th defenseman.  Not much fantasy value regardless.
