Jack LaFontaine is a big time prospect and is thought of to be one of the first goalies taken in the 2016 NHL Draft.
Jack is 6-3, 190 from Mississauga, Ontario. He plays for the Janesville Jets of the NAHL.
As of June, LaFontaine hadn’t officially signed with the (Kitchener) Rangers, but there is still the belief that he’ll end up with the club who drafted him. It’s also believed that LaFontaine could head the NCAA route with a few offers, but as of now, nothing has been decided just yet. LaFontaine will most likely hear his name chosen as one of the first goaltenders in the 2016 NHL Draft thanks to his raw skill alone, with many projecting him to be a potential second round pick early in the running. It’s always a gongshow when it comes to goaltenders in the draft, but from what it looks like, the brother of 2017 prospect Drake Lafontaine seems like a very solid bet to get selected early, and no matter where he plays, he should prove to be a very solid option in the crease.
Proud to announce my commitment to the University of Michigan! Thank you to friends, family and coaches for the help along the way! #GoBlue— Jack LaFontaine (@jack_lafontaine) December 15, 2015
