Lafreniere is currently working out and getting ready for the new NHL season expected to start in December. “Alexis loved his time in Rimouski,” Lafreniere’s agent, Emilie Castonguay told “We just felt it was better for him given the current state of the pandemic and of hockey around the world to continue his preparation at home,” she continued. “He has a great support system [at home] on and off the ice to get ready for his first NHL camp.”

So while the Rangers wait to pick him, he’s getting ready to prove why he is the clear #1 choice.
