Talent Analysis
Lacroix is a right shot with sound offensive traits -- he'll make the first pass and won't hesitate to join the play.  He needs to put on more weight so as to better work along the boards. He also needs to be quicker in getting back into position after joining an offensive rush. The coaching staff at Shawinigan love Lacroix for his consistantly positive attitude and stand-up characteristics. He's also good in the locker room.
