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.
A long term project with good upside. Has some added value in PIM leagues.
A beautiful, clutch goal by Leipsic:
