Lavigne also appeared in three postseason games this season earning a .921 save percentage and 1.72 goals-against average. Previously the Hawkesbury, Ontario native skated for St. Thomas University for three seasons with a 14-55-0 record, leading the AUS in saves each year. The 6-foot, 190-pound goalie also spent two years playing in the QMJHL for Quebec (2008-09) and Moncton (2007-08) with 34-11-2 and 6-15-5 records, respectively.
