History

After an unremarkable season Lacroix went undrafted in 2005, however this season, and specifically in the playoffs and Memorial Cup run for the Remparts, Lacroix’s stock rose. In the regular season Lacroix had 47 points (25 goals) in 70 games and in the playoffs 12 points in 23 games, but his hard work and contributions aside from point production won the praise of coach Patrick Roy, who named Lacroix as a player on his team he was most pleased with at the Memorial Cup.

Unsigned draft pick of the Capitals, he was signed by their farm club, the Hershey Bears in 2008.
