Georges Laraque is a legend of the game, and by the looks of it, his son has a very bright future in the game of hockey as well.
A new video of Laraque’s son being mic’d up during a warmup has gone viral, with fans absolutely loving every second of it.
Georges Laraque was a good player but mostly known for his knuckles. Even in the QMJHL, he had 661 penalty minutes in just 173 games.
In the NHL pre-season in 1997, Laraque started to make a name for himself by fighting Donald Brashear of the Vancouver Canucks, and that autumn, he made his NHL debut, starting a fight in his first game.
Laraque won the fight, and it was just the beginning of a great career for an old-school fighter.
From 1997 until 2010, Laraque was involved in a total of 150 scuffles in the NHL, according to himself, and during those years, he was one of the most feared enforcers out there.
Laraque is big and strong, and it seems like it runs in the genes. His son, Marcus, is 14 years old, already 6’2 and 181 lbs.
Born in 2009, he plays with HC Edmonton’s U15 in the JPHL and was mic’d up for a recent game.
The video was posted on social media and quickly went viral. Although the swearing was cut out, and no fighting or hits were involved, fans absolutely loved how Marcus behaved on the ice.
He seems like a great kid, and some things he said were hilarious.
The video is here below, and we promise, it’s well worth the watch!
