  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Goals in consecutive contests

    Lemieux scored a goal on two shots and added four PIM in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.

    Lemieux's second-period tally stood as the game-winner Saturday's. He's scored in each of the last two games. The Colorado native is up to seven tallies, one assist, 59 hits, 43 PIM and a plus-7 rating in 22 outings. He'll continue to fill a bottom-six role for the Kings, so his recent uptick in offense isn't likely to last long.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Buries goal Thursday

    Lemieux scored a goal on six shots in Thursday's 2-1 shootout win over the Canucks.

    Lemieux broke a scoreless tie at 7:39 of the second period. His six shots were tied with Matt Roy for the Kings' lead in the contest. Lemieux has scored twice in seven contests since he returned from a suspension, and he's up to six tallies and an assist through 21 games overall. The physical winger has added 58 hits, 39 PIM and a plus-6 rating this year.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Deposits game-winner in return

    Lemieux scored a goal and added four hits in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Wild.

    Lemieux, in his first game back from a five-game suspension for biting Brady Tkachuk on Nov. 27, deposited the game-winner for the Kings at 9:15 of the third period. The Wild showed their displeasure by giving him a spray from the water bottles as he passed the bench. Lemieux isn't known for much offense, but he's up to five goals, an assist, 40 hits, 32 PIM and 20 shots on net through 15 appearances. He'll have to stay productive -- and out of trouble -- to avoid losing his place in the lineup.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Handed five-game ban

    Lemieux was suspended for five games for biting the Senators' Brady Tkachuk.

    Lemieux was offered an in-person hearing, but the five-game result on the suspension makes it a non-appealable ruling. The 25-year-old will be out until Dec. 11 versus the Wild, though his place in the lineup is far from secure once he returns.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Hearing set for Tuesday

    Lemieux's in-person hearing with the Department of Player Safety is expected to occur Tuesday, John Hoven of SiriusXM NHL Network Radio reports.

    The fact that Lemieux is facing an in-person hearing over an alleged biting incident means he will almost certainly be facing an extended suspension, possibly longer than six games. At this point, fantasy players should probably be planning on the winger being ineligible for at least Tuesday's clash with Anaheim.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: In-person hearing coming

    Lemieux was offered an in-person hearing for biting Ottawa's Brady Tkachuk on Saturday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

    An in-person hearing means Lemieux could be suspended six games or more for biting the Ottawa forward. NHL Player Safety has yet to announce when the hearing will take place.

  • Kings' Brendan Lemieux: Accused of biting opponent

    Lemieux was ejected from Saturday's game against Ottawa after coming to the aid of a teammate, and he was later accused of biting the Senators' Brady Tkachuk, reports

    Tkachuk went off after game, calling Lemieux "a complete brick head." Lemieux had jumped into the fray when Tkachuk began shoving Blake Lizotte following a whistle. Tkachuk showed his bloody hand to the officials when he was heading to the penalty box. The two have a history and so do their fathers. Keith Tkachuk and Claude Lemieux dropped their gloves in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. A suspension could be coming if the accusation is confirmed.
