Huge and fearless, Laraque is thriving on the Oilers' checking line as he gets used to the NHL game. A scorer in Juniors with three different QMJHL teams, Laraque gets most of his points from hard work in the corners and in the ugly areas around the goal mouth. (nhl.com)
Georges in action vs. Colorado.
Scouting Report (from TSN):
Assets: Has the ability to utilize his tremendous size to create space for both himself and linemates. Is underrated in his ability to handle the puck and one of the toughest guys in the NHL.
Flaws: His skating is improving but still below NHL standards. Must watch his weight in order to maximize his strength and stamina.
Career potential: Laraque's a valuable fourth-line player, whether he drops the gloves or not. He can dominate along the boards and come out with the puck time and again. Laraque will continue to make his presence felt in the Western Conference.
