Lauzon is a mobile, two-way defenseman that will contribute all across the scoresheet if given the opportunity. He also plays with a slight edge to his game, offering additional support for those in fantasy leagues that count PIM.

February 2019 – Lauzon managed one goal, 15 blocked shots and ten shots on goal through a 15 game NHL stint with Boston. He was deployed in a mostly defensive role and saw an average of over two minutes on the PK. Since returning to Providence, he has a disappointing two points through 16 games. He still has just one goal on the season, but this certainly isn’t for a lack of effort, as Lauzon has fired 30 shots on net since his return to the AHL. Another name to watch as a potential trade chip this year, Lauzon’s best path to consistent NHL time might be away from the defensively-rich Bruins organization. Chris Mazza
October 2018 – Lauzon was called up to the Bruins as an injury replacement on October 27th. Lauzon had a volatile junior hockey career that saw him suffer a major neck injury and fight with inconsistency, yet he also managed to work as a major offensive catalyst at times, showing that he holds tremendous upside as a mobile defenseman. After his acclimation to professional hockey with Providence last season, Lauzon has stormed out of the gate this year with four points in his first six games. The Bruins’ former second-round pick noted that he must work on his defensive zone consistency, and none of his points have come with the man advantage. When he returns to Providence, he should continue to develop his all-around game, working towards a potential permanent role with the Bruins in 2019-2020. Chris Mazza
April 2017 – Lauzon had an up and down season for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. After a disappointing regular season which saw Lauzon regress to a mere 28 total points after putting up 10G 40A the season previous. However, Lauzon followed up with a spectacular 14 point performance in only 13 playoff appearances. It’s hard to say what to make of Lauzon at this point but he came to play when the games were for keeps. Lauzon suffered an injury this season which saw him play only 39 regular season games and this, in part, could be the reason for the slightly lower than expected production. Mike Drover
February 2016 – Lauzon continues to exceed all expectations this year in Rouyn-Noranda. He is now one of the top-scoring D in the Q with 35 points through 29 games. He very nearly made the World Junior squad – he was one of the final cuts, released just before Christmas. That’s pretty impressive for a kid who wasn’t even considered for the team last summer. Suffice it to say that Lauzon is a very pleasant surprise for the Bruins so far. Michael Boeckler
November 2015 – Lauzon, selected by the Bruins in the second round of last year’s draft, is putting up big numbers to start this year. The offensively-gifted defenseman has picked up 25 points in his first 18 games for first-place Rouyn-Noranda. Lauzon didn’t get much attention this summer – though he was a second-round pick, he was the Bruins’ sixth selection. But Lauzon is an excellent skater with a great eye for offense. Once he fills out his big frame Lauzon could be a formidable force on Boston’s blue line. Look for him around 2018. Michael Boeckler
