Lavoie was picked up 38th overall in the second round of the draft on Saturday.
The 18-year-old forward is originally from Montreal, Quebec and played on the Halifax Mooseheads during the 2018-19 season.
With the Moose, Lavoie scored 52 goals and 53 assists in 85 combined regular season & playoff games of the QMJHL.
Lavoie's size -- coming in at six-foot-four and 198 pounds - made him an interesting target for teams at the draft.
Asked to describe himself after the pick, Lavoie said he was a "power forward."
"I bring pucks to the net, use my body well and am an offensive guy," Lavoie says.
The Edmonton Oilers later tweeted a photo welcoming Lavoie to the team.
