History

2012-13: Jeremy Lauzon skated for the Amos Forestiers in the Quebec midget AAA league. In 41 games he scored 11 goals with 52 penalty minutes. The Forestiers missed the QMAAA playoffs. Playing for Team White in the Quebec Games, Lauzon scored 1 goal with 2 assists and was +7 with 4 penalty minutes in five games. He was selected by Rouyn-Noranda in the second round (20th overall) in the 2013 QMJHL Entry Draft. 

2013-14: Lauzon played for Rouyn-Noranda in the QMJHL as a 16-year-old. He scored 5 goals with 11 assists and was +4 with 64 penalty minutes in 55 regular season games. The Huskies finished fifth in the West Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Lauzon scored 2 goals with 2 assists and was -3 with 4 penalty minutes in nine playoff games. 

2014-15: Lauzon was the second-leading scorer amongst defensemen for Rouyn-Noranda, one point behind team leader Justin Guennette, in his second QMJHL season. He scored 15 goals with 21 assists and was +12 with 88 penalty minutes in 60 regular season games. The Huskies finished fourth in the West Division, falling to Val-d’Or in the first round of the playoffs. Lauzon appeared in one playoff game and was +1 with no points nor penalties. Lauzon was invited to the NHL Prospects Combine in June and was ranked 42nd in the Central Scouting final rankings. He was selected by Boston in the second round (52nd overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft. 

Talent Analysis

Lauzon is a gritty defenseman who isn’t afraid to jump in on the rush. He is an intriguing player; he can find the back of the net, having scored 15 goals in his second year in junior hockey, and is fairly responsible in his own zone. He’s a bit of a risk taker, however, and needs to refine his defensive game.

Future

Lauzon attended his first NHL training camp with the Bruins before returning to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies at the start of the 2015-16 season. He skated for the QMJHL all-stars in the Subway Series against Russia and was signed to a three-year entry-level contract by Boston in November 2015. Playing for a dominant Huskies' team, he is one of the leading scorers amongst QMJHL defensemen. Those numbers may be inflated playing for a dominant team but with his ability to move the puck forward and solid skating Lauzon projects as an effective offensive defender.

A year ago at this time the Boston Bruins‘ cupboard was fairly barren when it came to players skating in junior hockey—only former Saint John Sea Dogs left winger Mitchell Dempsey and current Harvard freshman Ryan Donato were playing in the junior ranks. Read more»

The QMJHL will be hard-pressed to provide its fans with more excitement than the seven-game series between the Quebec Remparts and Rimouski Oceanic did last season. Although those teams may not find themselves in quite as good a position to entertain in 2015-16, other squads are poised to supplant them at the top of the standings—and many of the league’s best players are back for an encore.
