Oliver Lauridsen (7)

Oliver-Lauridsen2

The big Dane d-man Oliver Lauridsen(7) played out the 2013 regular season in the NHL scoring 2 goals and 1 assist in 15 games with a 0 rating on a team that missed the playoffs.

He was given a two-year extension in the offseason but played 63 AHL games without garnering a call-up even though he recorded a season high 10 assists and 11 points; and also got into 9 dust-ups flexing some ruggedness and took his penalty totals up to 167 minutes.

In 2014/2015 he managed to skate in a career high 75 games for new farm team Lehigh Valley Phantoms scoring a new best 4 goals and again threw down the gloves 9 times and had 152 pims but only got into one game with the Flyers as he was past by other blue liners on the big club’s depth chart.

The 26-year old was an unrestricted free agent heading into the new season and heads overseas signing for 2015/2016 with Frolunda Indians of the SHL.

He’ll probably elevate his game to a whole other level.
