Like Lafrenière and Byfield, the smooth-skating offensive defenseman was also a part of the 2020 World Junior champion Canadian roster, where he scored a goal and added two assists in seven games on the back end. The 18-year-old winger made his debut in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga and put up a stellar season for Adler Mannheim. Over the past three seasons, Lafrenière has put up some outstanding production with the Rimouski Océanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, scoring 114 goals and picking up 183 assists for 297 points in 173 games played.
He could very well be named as the MVP of both the QMJHL and the CHL once again when they decide to hand out the annual awards.
