2003-2004 Season Review – Larrivee entered his first
professional season, as he finished up his career in QMJHL, where he was at one
time a line mate of PM Bouchard of the Minnesota Wild. After not being able to
secure a roster spot with Hamilton, Larrivee was sent down to Columbus where he
would see a good deal of ice time instead of very limited time in the AHL.
Christian was able to dress in two games for Hamilton and picked up two points
in his brief stay.
January 2004 – Larrivee has been able to dress for every
game, which should help him gain experience in his first year as a professional
hockey player. The problem for Larrivee has been in his own end, as he has the
second worst +/- on the team by a wide margin with a -12.
October 2003 – Has setup a couple of plays so far, but will
need to really show something in the ECHL, as the skill level in Hamilton is
very high right now, which makes it hard for a player to get ice time. This may
be a good position for him, as he can work on improving his game, with little to
no pressure on him, and next year there should be more roster spots available on
the Bulldogs roster.
