Played top two minutes for the Stars this season. Honestly, he's more than ready to make the jump to NCAA, but UND didn't have any room on their blueline this season. I believe the only defenseman UND has coming in this season is Jordan Schmaltz, who was a first round pick of the St. Louis Blues. I'm biased, but I think LaDue is just as good as Schmaltz. He's a much better skater, that's for sure. Schmaltz may have more offensive tools, but LaDue is a good two-way defenseman who can handle his own in the offensive zone.
Again, if you guys have any specific questions, let me know. We're very happy for Paul back here in Lincoln. Diamond in the rough type of pick. Here's my blog:
Awesome! Projection? Comparable NHL player? How physical is he? And has he ever had any issues with teammates?
