May 2013 - Predators' prospect Brendan Leipsic is the co-recipient of the CHL Top Scorer award with linemate Nic Petan (2013 NHL Draft eligible). The teammates each recorded 120 points to lead all three CHL leagues and Leipsic's 49 goals fell one shy of crossing the 50-goal plateau. Leipsic possesses one of the best shots in the CHL and projects as a true sniper at the next level. Brendan Ross


March 2013 - Brendan Leipsic and Winterhawks' teammate Nic Petan finished in a tie for first place in Western Hockey League scoring with 120 points. Leipsic's 49 goals led the league in scoring and his 100+ penalty minute season bodes well for his fantasy value. Brendan Ross

December 2012 - Portland Winterhawks forward Brendan Leipsic has been named WHL Player of the Week (ending November 25) after posting three goals, nine points and a plus-5 rating.  Leipsic sits second in team scoring with 15 goals for 38 points through 22 WHL games. Brendan Ross


June 2012 – After an impressive WHL season, Brendan Liepsic was taken by the Nashville Predators in the third round of the NHL Entry Draft. Leipsic is a small, energetic forward with very good vision and stickhandling abilities. His skill set can be used in a variety of ways, including the power play, or even playing on a checking line. His mixture of smarts and skill make him a very enticing prospect. He will need to bulk up to make up for his lack of size. Leipsic also needs to work on his discipline and avoid taking bad penalties. Zenon Herasymiuk
