Lernout needed some time to find his groove in the WHL, but has done so in a big way with 22 points and a plus 7 in 72 games this season. Central Scouting’s B.J. MacDonald describes him as a big, tough, nasty kid. He brings a great physical presence and is a difficult player to play against. Lernout also uses his size and strength to effectively clear out the front of the net.
He’s at his best defensively when he makes smart simple plays, and the same is true with his puck play. Mobility will be the big thing scouts want to see him work on.
