Anon said: Tell me about Zach Lauzon. I’m a pens fan, should I love him?

G O D yes you should love him. So you might know him best because of his older brother, Jérémy Lauzon, who was on Team Canada during WJC. I’ve been calling Zach “baby Lauz” because Jer has been “Lauz” but then I found out that they have a little brother Émile who was just drafted to the Val-d’Or Foreurs in the 2017 QMJHL Draft! So now Zach is “middle Lauz” I guess. It’s also hilarious because VDO and ROU are enemies so there’s a family rivalry right there

The Lauzon brothers are adorable and good. (That’s Jer, Émile, and Zach from left to right, when the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies won the 2016 President’s Cup and were QMJHL champions)

So as you know, Zach is a defenseman who played for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL (my third Q team!) and will probably spend at least another year with them. They have nice jerseys. (Those are their thirds, but their home and away ones are n*ce too please check them out). He was projected around 140-200, I think? Mostly bc he’s solid defensively but doesn’t score a lot. So I was super surprised to see him go so high

Zach is not an offensive defenseman, and he doesn’t put up a lot of points, but he’s a good puck mover and he won defensive defenseman of the year in the QMJHL. I think he was actually paired with Jérémy on the Huskies during the games I watched, and my heart was gone, thanks. I’ve heard people already comparing Zach to Brian Dumoulin, except a little more aggressive. He’s chill and loves his family though and his family is cute af

I’m excited for Season 7. Plain and simple. I get another season with my fave, in a new setting with a new ‘identity’ to play with (yet another Killian to love, I’m sure), with Captain Cobra looking to be a pretty strong bet.

Colin has seemed excited and encouraging for the new season since it was announced.

If there’s anybody’s judgement I’m gonna rely on, it’s his.

Not all fans are discouraged or losing hope. I’m still here hyped up for what’s coming. They start filming in a couple weeks. Colin’s going to D23. Judging off of the Twitter exchange with Colin and YNB last weekend, would put money on them being at SDCC again.

So yeah…. not everyone is sharing a doom and gloom outlook.


Than any boy you’ll ever meet 

Sweetie you had me
