The financial terms of the 29th overall winner’s first professional contract in the National Hockey League’s most recent draft have not been specified.

“He’s a big, strong and physical full-back while also being a very good skater and having a great shot. We look forward to seeing his progress this season,” club boss Bill Armstrong said in a statement.

Last season, Lamoureux recorded four goals and 20 assists for 24 points in 54 games with the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The 18-year-old, 6-foot-7, had 31 points, including five goals, in 78 career games with his junior team.
