Playing career[edit]

Defenceman Dominic Lavoie was a fringe player who never played more than 13 games in a season. A talented offensive player, the majority of his success came in the minors and Europe.

The Montreal native played junior with the QMJHL's St-Jean Castors. He was signed as a free agent by the St. Louis Blues and was a part-time skater for four years. He spent most of his time with the IHL's Peoria Rivermen where he contributed to a Turner Cup championship in 1991. Lavoie was one of the best offensive blueliners in the league with four straight years of at least 40 points and selection to the first and second all-star teams once each. He also toiled briefly for the Ottawa Senators, Boston Bruins, and L.A. Kings (where his only 3 goals were in a hat trick) before heading to Europe. Beginning in 1994-95 he played five years with VEU Feldkirch of the Austrian League then signed with Germany's Hannover in 1999. Lavoie also lent his expertise to the Austrian team at the 1999 and 2000 World Championships and he finished the 7th best scorer during the 1998 Olympics in Nagano.

Lavoie is now retired and resides in El Dorado Hills, California.
