Top Brendan Lemieux News

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Has 18 hits in last four games

    Lemieux has 12 PIM and 18 hits in four games since returning from a lower-body injury.

    Lemieux's up to 46 PIM and 63 hits in 21 contests this season. He has no goals and only three assists in 2022-23 though, and Lemieux's been held off the scoresheet in his last 13 outings. The 26-year-old isn't expected to make significant offensive contributions going forward, especially given that he's averaged just 8:48 of ice time this season, but he still should continue to get plenty of hits and PIM.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Activated from injured reserve

    Lemieux (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.

    Lemieux has been out of action since Nov. 12 and has missed the last 18 games. The truculent winger has only three assists in 15 games, with 28 PIM and 42 hits. He could see fourth-line duty Thursday against the Flames.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Begins skating

    Lemieux (lower body) skated Thursday at practice, Zach Dooley of the Kings' official site reports.

    Lemieux hasn't played since Nov. 12 when he suffered the injury against the Red Wings. He'll miss his ninth straight game Thursday, but it's possible the 26-year-old winger is close to being activated from injured reserve. He'd likely see a fourth-line role once he's back in action.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Lands on IR

    Lemieux (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday.

    Lemieux was injured in Saturday's game against Detroit. His move to the IR list will sideline him for at least the next four games. Lemieux has three assists, 15 shots on goal and 42 hits in 15 games this season. In a corresponding move, the Kings brought up Lias Andersson from the minors Sunday.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Expected to miss time

    Lemieux (undisclosed) was injured in Saturday's game against Detroit, Dan Greenspan of NHL.com reports.

    Lemieux was unable to return to the contest after delivering a hit to Red Wings forward Adam Erne during the second period. "I think he's probably going to be out for a little while, but I can't give you any more than that," coach Todd McLellan said following the game. It doesn't sound like Lemieux will be available for Monday's matchup against Calgary.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Draws assist Thursday

    Lemieux notched an assist, four hits and two PIM in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Jets.

    Lemieux logged his third assist of the season with a secondary helper on a Blake Lizotte goal. The 26-year-old Lemieux continues to provide more pain than scoring punch with 22 hits and 17 PIM in addition to 11 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through eight contests. Given his fairly replaceable skill set, he could be a healthy scratch on occasion, though the Kings likely value his toughness.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Sends helper in shootout win

    Lemieux registered an assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Predators.

    Lemieux fed a pass to Matt Roy for a goal at 13:00 of the third period. The assist was Lemieux's second in four contests this season. The bruising winger has added 11 PIM, three shots on net, five hits and a minus-1 rating. He'll rarely player higher than the fourth line, so he's a non-factor for most fantasy managers given his limited skill set on offense.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Draws into lineup Thursday

    Lemieux will draw into the Kings lineup Thursday when they face the Kraken, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

    Lemieux was a healthy scratch Tuesday and will replace the ailing Viktor Arvidsson (illness) in the lineup. Lemieux will add toughness Thursday as he had 97 PIM and 122 hits in 50 games last season.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Signs one-year extension

    Lemieux signed a one-year, $1.35 million contract extension with the Kings on Wednesday.

    After not receiving a qualifying offer and becoming an unrestricted free agent, Lemieux has re-signed with LA at a slightly lower price tag. The 26-year-old winger drew into 50 games with the Kings last season, picking up eight goals, 13 points, 97 PIM and 122 hits while averaging 10:45 of ice time per contest. The 26-year-old winger will likely post similar numbers in 2022-23, so he won't be a viable fantasy option in most formats.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Not receiving qualifying offer

    Lemieux was not issued a qualifying offer from the Kings on Monday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Lemieux will become an unrestricted free agent Wednesday after tallying 13 points in 50 games last season. He also dished out 122 hits while averaging 10:65 of ice time. The 26-year-old could garner some interest as a cheap depth forward this offseason.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Deals assist in overtime loss

    Lemieux notched an assist, three hits and two PIM in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Kings.

    Lemieux has picked up assists in each of the last two games, seeing a slightly larger role as the Kings rested their top-six forwards. The agitating winger ends the regular season with 13 points, 122 hits, 97 PIM, 65 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 50 contests. If he's in the lineup during the playoffs, he'll likely be confined to a fourth-line assignment.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Ready to rock

    Lemieux (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Thursday's game versus Edmonton.

    Lemieux should slot into a bottom-six role against the Oilers following his one-month absence. He's picked up 11 points, 86 PIM and 108 hits through 44 games this campaign.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Week-to-week with injury

    Lemieux (lower body) was deemed a week-to-week decision Wednesday, per Jim Fox of Bally Sports.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Surfaces on IR

    Lemieux (lower body) was placed on injured reserve (retroactive to Friday) on Tuesday.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Expected to miss multiple games

    Lemieux (lower body) is considered doubtful for this week, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    Lemieux will most likely miss at least the Kings' next two games against the Bruins and the Sharks. The 25-year-old is averaging 11:01 of ice time with 11 points through 44 games this season. An update on his status could be available before the team's back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Remains out Sunday

    Lemieux (lower body) will not participate in Sunday's game against Buffalo, per John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio.

    Lemieux exited Friday's game with a lower-body injury after logging just 1:35 of ice time. The 25-year-old has averaged 10:59 of ice time and generated three points over his last 10 appearances prior to Friday. He will set his sights on returning for Monday's tilt versus Boston.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Early exit from Friday's win

    Lemieux left Friday's win over the Blue Jackets in the first period with a lower-body injury and didn't return, Russell Morgan of the Hockey Royalty podcast reports.

    There's been no word yet from the Kings on the severity of the injury, or how much additional time he might miss. Lemieux is a valuable physical presence in the bottom six with 86 PIM and 108 hits through 44 games, but the 25-year-old has only eight goals and 11 points on the season.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Scores insurance marker

    Lemieux scored a goal on three shots and added two hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

    Lemieux struck with 29 seconds left in the second period, and that made the deficit too much for the Islanders to bounce back from. The 25-year-old winger has a goal and two helpers in his last six outings. Lemieux is at 11 points, 79 PIM, 102 hits, 58 shots on net and a plus-5 rating in 41 games as a physical force on the Kings' fourth line.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Produces assist

    Lemieux logged an assist and two PIM in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Lemieux has collected two assists in his last four games after going 13 contests without a point throughout much of January. The 25-year-old winger is still more of a physical presence than a scorer. He's at 10 points, 96 hits, 79 PIM, 54 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 39 contests while mostly serving on the fourth line.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Gets on scoresheet with helper

    Lemieux notched an assist and five hits in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Oilers.

    Lemieux set up Arthur Kaliyev's first-period marker. The assist snapped Lemieux's 13-game point drought, during which he went minus-2 with 34 PIM, 24 hits and 19 shots on goal. The 25-year-old winger remains a low-scoring, physical presence on the fourth line with nine points, 88 hits, 77 PIM, 51 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through 36 contests.
