Laliberte earns ECHL All-Star honors

The transition from college to pro hockey started slowly for John Laliberte. The team that drafted him, Vancouver, didn’t offer a contract, nor did Colorado after Laliberte had a decent free agent tryout. He landed in Trenton, a franchise that has always been friendly to college players, and just completed a strong first half that took him to the ECHL all-star game, where he joined another ex-Terrier, Ken Magowan, now skating for the Toledo Storm. New England Hockey Journal tracks John's progress.

It was disappointing to see that Libs didn't get much ice time up at Worcester. He showed so much promise at the training camp in Denver for the Avs. As an Avs fan, I was so hopeful that they'd sign him to a contract in Albany. Stupid shared AHL affiliation, blah!
