OTTAWA, Ontario — The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team are adding depth down the middle with their latest recruit, local product Paul Larabie.
“I am delighted and excited to commit to a program that is highly regarded both on and off the ice – that is really important to me,” says Larabie. “Being an Ottawa native makes it particularly special for me and my family.”
Larabie spent his last full season with the CCHL’s Kanata Lasers, scoring 57 points in 60 games before moving on to the Renfrew Wolves for the cancelled 2020-21 season. Prior to his season with the Lasers, Larabie played two seasons for the OHL’s Kingston Frontenacs where he tallied 12 points in 88 games.
Larabie says he is excited to bring his physicality to the Ravens’ lineup. “I’m looking forward to bringing a strong physical presence and energy to the forward group. A critical part of my game is to focus on just being a good two way forward that can help in the face-off dot.”
He says that he was impressed with the Ravens program and was convinced to make his commitment official after speaking with the coaching staff. “The program reputation was already positive and strong in my opinion. Meeting with the coaching staff really solidified the level of commitment and passion they bring to player development. It was a huge win for me.”
Aside from hockey, Larabie says that he will be a part of Carleton’s Communication and Media Studies program when the next school year starts.
