Despite his young age, team manager Christian Weber believes that Josh Lawrence is already a complete player with a lot of potential: "Josh is a very young player who wants to launch his professional career in Europe. Despite his young age, he is already an accomplished playmaker who has a good eye for the game. In addition with his good shot, it makes him a complete player."
Lawrence has just finished his fifth season in the QMJHL. After four years with the Saint John Sea Dogs, Lawrence started the 2022-23 season with Blainville-Boisbriand Armada before joining the Halifax Mooseheads midseason. With Halifax, he collected 118 points (47 goals) in 65 games.
