</div></div> Oliver Holton Lauridsen (born March 24, 1989) is a Danish professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League (AHL). He is the older brother to Markus, a prospect for the Colorado Avalanche.

Playing careerEdit

Lauridsen was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers 196th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Flyers on March 15, 2011 after his third season of college hockey at St. Cloud State.[1]

On March 29, 2013, after spending one season with the Adirondack Phantoms he was called up to replace the injured Braydon Coburn.[2] He debuted the next day in a game against the Boston Bruins.[3] A month later, Lauridsen scored his first NHL goal after Boston defenseman Zdeno Chára's attempt to clear the puck deep in his own zone managed to slip past Boston goaltender Anton Khudobin and into the net.[4] Lauridsen was credited with the goal since he was the last Flyers player to have touched the puck and it proved to be the game-winning goal.[4] Two days later he scored the game-winner again, this time via a slapshot that eluded New York Islanders goaltender Kevin Poulin.[5]
