Lauridsen To Forego Senior Year, Sign With Flyers

St. Cloud state defenseman Oliver Lauridsen is leaving the Huskies a year early. The junior defender will forego his senior season to sign with the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers. The team announced the signing of the 6’6” Danish defenseman on their Twitter page this morning. Lauridsen was a seventh round pick of the Flyers in the 2009.
The move comes as a bit of a surprise as Lauridsen’s younger brother, Markus- a defenseman for the Green Bay Gamblers, is committed to play at St. Cloud State next season. The departure of Lauridsen was confirmed by the Flyers through SCSU Athletic Media Relations this afternoon.
