Curtis Lazar (born February 2, 1995) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He is currently a member of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League. Lazar was selected by the Senators in the first round (17th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He played his junior hockey with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League (WHL).
In February 2011, Lazar captained Team British Columbia to win the gold medal in ice hockey at the 2011 Canada Winter Games. He broke the tournament goal scoring record previously set by Steven Stamkos (12) and Sidney Crosby's points mark (17) in six games. He was the second overall choice in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft. Lazar played at the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy before playing in the CSSHL with the Okanagan Hockey Academy during the 2010-11 season. During the 2011-12 season he helped his Edmonton Oil Kings team capture the Ed Chynoweth Cup as the WHL Champions. During the 2012-13 season he played with Team Canada to win a gold medal at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, and was an invited participant at the 2013 CHL Top Prospects Game.
Lazar's playing style has been compared to that of Boston Bruins' forward Milan Lucic and former Senators' forward Mike Fisher. On June 30, 2013, he was selected in the first round, 17th overall, by the NHL's Ottawa Senators in the NHL Entry Draft. On September 17, 2013, he signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Senators.
Lazar was born in Salmon Arm, British Columbia, but grew up in Vernon, British Columbia. His parents, Dave and Karen Lazar, have three other children, Jenna, Ryan and Cory. Lazar lists Joe Sakic and Ryan Getzlaf as his favourite hockey players growing up.
