Andrew Lacroix is an imposing strong power winger who puts himself in the right spots offensively and has the presence of mind to distribute and work off the puck to succeed offensively. Andrew Lacroix is a stellar complimentary player, a balanced style of player who strong on his feet and willing to go anywhere on the ice to receive the puck. Accomplishes a lot offensively as he can score, set up guys, and forecheck. Has intuitive stick positioning, plants himself in right in front of the net and puts his stick down to score. A very technical skater with a powerful stride. Big and strong, Lacroix can dominate tight quarters and shield the puck. Back checks hard and plays with a purpose and pace in all three zones. Act as a relay man on the break out can make quick one touch passes to the swooping center and follow up as a trailer. Competes hard in puck battles and can quickly react to the play. Great shot and a scoring touch, Andrew Lacroix has 26 goals this past season. A similar kind of player to Jake Neighbours, likely turns out to be a similar kind of shit disturber who can also put the puck in the back of the net.
