Playing career[edit]

Lalonde was drafted 68th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Lalonde signed a three-year entry level contract with the Blackhawks on December 31, 2009.[1] At the time, Lalonde played for the Belleville Bulls, a junior team in the Ontario Hockey League. In the 2009–10 season Lalonde led the Bull's defense and finished first on his team by scoring with 56 points in 58 games earning selection to the OHL Third All-Star Team.[2]

After finishing out of the OHL playoffs, Lalonde was assigned to play for the Blackhawks American Hockey League affiliate, the Rockford Icehogs, on March 16, 2010.[3] Lalonde scored his first professional goal with the Icehogs in a 4-3 victory over the Peoria Rivermen on March 26,[4] before appearing in 3 playoff games with the IceHogs.

On April 14, 2011, the Chicago Blackhawks called Lalonde up to the NHL.[5] Lalonde made his NHL debut for the Blackhawks on April 27, 2013 against the St. Louis Blues. He had 14:47 of ice time, playing both the wing and defence and finishing the game as a +1, being on ice for Chicago's only goal of the contest. Lalonde will remain with the Blackhawks during their playoff run.

On July 24, 2013, Lalonde left the Blackhawks organization and signed a one-year contract with German club, Eisbären Berlin of the DEL.[6] In the 2013–14 season, Lalonde quickly established himself amongst the Berlin blueline, finishing the season as the top scoring defenseman with 12 goals and 30 points.

Unable to agree on a extension with Berlin on April 28, 2014, Lalonde signed a contract with Swedish club, Färjestad BK.[7]
