Christian Lucien Laflamme (born November 24, 1976) is a former professional ice hockey defenceman. Laflamme was selected in the second round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, 45th overall, by the Chicago Blackhawks, after a successful junior career in the QMJHL.

Laflamme started his NHL career with the Blackhawks before being dealt to the Edmonton Oilers in a trade that saw Boris Mironov join the Blackhawks. Laflamme spent less than a calendar year in Edmonton before being traded to the Montreal Canadiens. After two seasons in Montreal with limited playing time, Laflamme signed as a free agent with the St. Louis Blues, where he has split time between the NHL and the AHL.


Personal life[edit]

In his youth, he was more of an offensive quarterback styled player, but in the NHL, he was used sparingly in that role.[citation needed]
