History

2008-09: In his QMJHL rookie season, Louis-Marc Aubry scored 10 goals and added 12 assists in 65 games for the Montreal Juniors.  He also played in 10 playoff games for that club, scoring 2 goals and 2 assists.

2009-10: Played 66 games for the Montreal Juniors, scoring 15 goals and adding 18 assists for 33 points.  In 7 playoff games for Montreal, Aubry scored 1 goal and 1 assist for 2 points.  Scored an empty net goal for the victorious Team Cherry at the 2010 CHL Top Propsects Game.  Ranked 87th among North American skaters by Central Scouting in the final rankings.

2010-11: Started off the year strong as a member of the Montreal Juniors before going down with an injury. Aubry played in 35 games, finishing the season with 13 goals and 12 assists for 25 points. He had a strong post-season, participating in 10 games where he scored 5 goals and 1 assist for 6 points.

2011-12: Aubry made his pro hockey debut as a 20-year-old, skating in 62 games for Detroit’s AHL affiliate Grand Rapids. In mostly a lower line role, he scored 5 goals with 11 assists and was minus-six with 39 penalty minutes.  Grand Rapids missed the AHL playoffs; finishing fourth in the North Division.

2012-13: Aubrey skated for Detroit AHL affiliate Grand Rapids in his second pro season. Playing in a lower line role, he scored 4 goals with 8 assists and was -2 with 60 penalty minutes in 64 games. The Griffins finished first in the Midwest Division and captured the Calder Cup championship. Aubrey played in 14 of 24 playoff games and was +3 with 1 assist.

 

Talent Analysis

Possessing imposing size, Aubry could be well on his way to becoming a pro prospect by simply filling out his frame. A solid two-way presence, the Trois-Rivieres native has all the tools to dominate on the ice, he just needs to put it together.  Crashing the net and blocking shots with equal enthusiasm, Aubry might not have the skills to ever be a scoring forward, but the rest of the package is too enticing to ignore.

 

Future

Aubry has yet to deliver on his potential and will have one final season in the AHL in 2014-15 to show that he should remain with Detroit's organization.
