LaDue climbing the ladder towards NHL career


During the 2010-11 season, defenseman Paul LaDue was playing for the Alexandria Blizzard of the North American Hockey League, a Tier II junior league known more for producing players for the NCAA rather than the NHL.

Looking forward to seeing him in a UND sweater. Always nice when North Dakota natives play for the home state team.

Steady, solid player. Not flashy, but he does the job better than most d-men in the USHL. Honestly, he was ready to make the move to college this year, but UND already had their blueline set. UND is getting a good one.
