Los Angeles Kings
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lemieux's not much of a scorer, but he can be an asset in formats that reward the rough stuff, as the rugged winger has surpassed 100 PIM in each of the past two seasons. He totaled 18 points in 59 games while skating in the bottom six for the Rangers last year and will likely be penciled into a similar role in 2020-21. Lemieux spent some time working as the net-front presence on the second power-play unit last year, but he's unlikely to reprise that role unless injuries strike with first overall pick Alexis Lafreniere joining established veterans Artemi Panarin and Chris Kreider ahead of him on the depth chart at left wing.

Lemieux scored a goal and added three hits in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
ANALYSIS
Lemieux put the Kings ahead just 2:12 into the game, but Mikko Rantanen quickly responded for the Avalanche. The 25-year-old Lemieux has four goals, seven helpers, 62 PIM, 95 hits and 47 shots on net through 45 games between the Kings and the Rangers this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Lemieux was used sparingly in a fourth-line role by the Jets last season, but he saw a significant uptick in usage after being acquired by the Rangers at the trade deadline. Nobody will confuse Brendan for Mario, but if he can get his conditioning up, the young agitator has enough skill and speed to turn into a serious bottom-six asset for the Blueshirts. Lemieux recorded 108 PIM to go with 17 points in 63 appearances between Winnipeg and New York in 2018-19, so he should be on your radar in leagues that value PIM.
As the son of legendary agitator and four-time Stanley Cup champion Claude Lemieux, expectations are sky high for the 22-year-old. Brendan, who's feisty like his pops, maintained an eye-popping (0.90) points-per-game pace between the OHL's Barrie Colts and Windsor Spitfires from 2012-16. Showing well from a development standpoint, he'd go on to punish the AHL competition, adding 65 points and 306 PIM for Manitoba in the most recent campaign. Lemieux is only up to nine NHL appearances to date, but the 2014 second-round (31st overall) draft pick -- he was selected by Buffalo and subsequently traded to Winnipeg in 2015 -- figures to be one of the top candidates for a call-up when injuries inevitably threaten the parent club up front. Of course, with a strong showing in training camp, he may even crack the Opening Night roster.
