April 2013 - It was an up-and-down year for Lucas Lessio of the Oshawa Generals as the big winger struggled with injuries and consistent production. He started the season strong with 12 points in his first eight games but would not see the consistent production for the remainder of the season. When Lessio is on top of his game he is one of the better skating forwards in the OHL as he packs a powerful stride. He has the ability to drive the net and scores most of his points when he shows this willingness. Lessio finished the 2012-13 OHL regular season with 19 goals and 34 points in 35 games. In the post-season, he picked up three points in the opening series but failed to record a single point in Barrie's 4-game sweep of the Generals. Brendan Ross
November 2012 – Signed a three year entry level in the summer and returned to the OHL’s Oshawa Generals. He is currently upgrading his production to a point per game pace and leading the team in power play goals with six. He has not played in the past 3 weeks due to an injury. Lessio also missed the opportunity of playing in the Subway Super Series late last week. Jason Banks
February 2012 – Lessio is a fitness fanatic and it shows through his 6-foot-1, 200 pound frame. He plays on the edge, often taking minor penalties but rarely fights. Lessio is known for his soft hands, and has put up modest numbers playing for the Oshawa Generals the past two seasons. The former seventh overall pick in the OHL Priority Draft has yet to break out offensively, and needs to develop his defensive play before he makes the jump to the pro level.
Fantasy Outlook: C-
Look for Lessio to develop his defensive game in the OHL and AHL before he is given a sniff at a top nine role in the NHL.
Lessio gets a quick goal off the faceoff:
