From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Georges Laraque (b. 7 December 1976) is a professional ice hockey forward. He was selected in the second round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, 31st overall, by the Edmonton Oilers.

Pre-NHL career

Born in Montreal, it was natural for Laraque to enter the QMJHL, where he played for a variety of teams, generally as a power forward. In 173 games at the junior level, Laraque stockpiled 107 points and an even more impressive 661 penalty minutes. After finishing junior, Laraque spent parts of three seasons with Edmonton's American Hockey League affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs.

NHL career

Despite concerns about his skating, Laraque showed enough at the AHL-level for Edmonton to bring him to the NHL. Although he was something of a power forward in junior, Laraque is considered primarily as an enforcer at the NHL level. During the NHL lockout, he played in Sweden, signing on with AIK Stockholm.
