Observations:

 

June 2014 - Brendan Lemieux was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres at 31st overall in the second round. Lemieux is projected to be an agitating forward with a bit of a scoring touch, similar to his father Claude Lemieux. He will look to be valuable in roto leagues. -Kevin Won

 

May 2014 – Brendan Lemieux is a rising prospect for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and he`s being considered a potential late first round selection. The son of former NHL antagonist Claude Lemieux, Brendan competes in a similar skilled yet gritty mold often getting under the skin of opponents. Not afraid to drop the mitts or lay out a larger player, Lemieux plays a no fear and borderline reckless game. His offensive skills are underrated as he has shown an ability to finish off plays with a soft touch. Lemieux is an impact forward that rivals despise playing against and the fact that he can play several roles up and down the lineup is certainly appealing. Lemieux owns good fantasy value with his ability to provide both points (he posted 27 goals and 53 points) and penalty minutes (147 PIM). Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B-

 

Top nine agitating skilled winger capable of producing upwards of 50-60 points and he should fill up the penalty minute and hits columns.
