Like father, like son. Brendan, whose father Claude is known as one of the most vilified agitators in NHL history, tries to model his game after that of his dad. Adding some new age play to his dad’s old school style, Lemieux embodies to future of the power forward/agitator. Even Lemieux’s teammate Aaron Ekblad acknowledges his ability to get under peoples skin, saying “as a teammate you love him, but as an opponent you don’t.”

Lemieux is a hardnosed player who keeps his game simple to succeed. He’ll battle in the corners, and doesn’t mind planting himself in front of the net. Whatever he’s doing though, he does it as hard as possible, which just adds to how annoying he can be. He takes pride in getting under opponents skin, but doesn’t let it keep him from making smart plays and playing the game the right way.

This season however, he has also shown his ability to be a points man, showing an increased offensive presence. While he may not be flashy or fancy, his work ethic and his determination to play within himself have helped him excel as a top six guy with the Colts this season. He already has good size, but with continued growth and skill development, the 2nd generation Lemieux could be a force at the NHL level.
