Grit goalie Lacroix joins Boston University for remainder of season

December 21, 2023

The Colorado Grit of the (North American Hockey League) have announced that goaltender Max Lacroix will forgo the second half of the season and head off to play NCAA Division I hockey for the Boston University Terriers in Hockey East for the second semester of the 2023-24 season.

Lacroix, 20, is currently in his first season of playing junior hockey in the NAHL. The 6’0/180 lbs. native of Castle Pines, CO, appeared in 12 games during the 2023-24 season and posted a 2-6-3 record with a 3.16 goals against average and a .914 save percentage.

"I got a phone call from the coaching staff seeing if I would be interested to join the team after Christmas as they felt that I was ready to come in now," Lacroix told Colorado Rubber Hockey. "After talking with my family and coaches, we all agreed that it was the right decision and we went ahead with it. To be honest, I wasn’t even aware that it was possible to go in halfway, but we’ll have four goalies now. I’m just planning on being myself and helping the team in any way I can regardless of where I am in the lineup."

"It was truly an amazing experience to play with the Grit for the first half of the season," Lacroix continued. "My parents got to come to every game, I billeted with my grandma and a few teammates, and I created lifelong friendships along the way. I’m very grateful I got the opportunity to play juniors at home."

Prior to playing the NAHL, Lacroix played prep school hockey for The Governor’s Academy and youth hockey for the Colorado Thunderbirds.
