Fantasy Summary

Big goal scoring winger that has the ability to take over games when he wants to. Consistency is a concern at this point but the tools are there for him to be a top six winger.

January 2020: Overall, it has been a successful season for the Lavoie. The young winger recorded a strong 18 goals and 44 points in 30 games for Halifax before being moved to Chicoutimi where he has added six goals and 11 points in seven games. His 55 points places him 15th in the QMJHL and his 1.45 points per game is 11th. He is also third in the league with 229 shots on goal. Lavoie was a member of Canada’s gold medal-winning world junior team and he recorded two assists in seven games at the tournament. He did not have a big impact on team Canada and was utilized in a bottom-six role. The big right winger does not have the best stride and he can be inconsistent in terms of his compete level but his combination of size and goal-scoring is intriguing and something Edmonton could use in their top six. Jameson Ewasiuk  

 

 
June 2019 – You won’t find many people criticizing this pick for the Oilers. Lavoie was seen as a consensus first round pick and ended up 19th on Bob McKenzie’s final so at the moment selecting Lavoie at 38th seems to be a strong value pick. Lavoie possesses an impressive tool set that includes his size and strong finishing ability. He has the ability to take over games but one of the biggest concerns with his play is his lack of consistency from game to game which has some people calling him a boom/bust prospects. His 32 goals and 73 points in 62 regular season games is solid but he really turned it on in the playoffs where he finished with 20 goals and 32 points in just 23 games. He followed the playoffs up with a respectable two goals and three points in four games at the Memorial Cup. Lavoie checks off a lot of boxes for the Oilers in terms of needs in their top six so there will be high hopes with this player moving forward. Jameson Ewasiuk
