Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Suspension served
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux has served his two-game suspension and will be eligible to draw back into the lineup for Tuesday's Game 3 against Carolina.

The Rangers are in a two-game hole and are facing elimination, so Lemieux will almost certainly be reinserted into the lineup with the hope he'll provide a jolt for his club up front. The 24-year-old winger posted 18 points while racking up 111 PIM in 59 games during the regular season.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Suspended two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux will serve a two-game suspension during the play-in clash with Carolina, per the NHL Department of Player Safety.

Lemieux's suspension was announced back in March, though the league didn't specify the number of games at that time. While the winger will be out for the first two playoffs contests, he will be allowed to play in the exhibition matchup versus the Islanders on July 28.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Facing suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux will be suspended for a yet to be determined number of games whenever the NHL resumes play.

Lemieux will be suspended for the high hit he delivered to Colorado's Joonas Donskoi during Wednesday's loss to the Avalanche. The length of the 23-year-old's ban will be announced whenever the NHL returns from its indefinite hiatus.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Two points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux scored a goal and an assist, both with the man advantage, in Monday's 5-3 loss to Dallas.

This was Lemieux's second multi-point performance of the season and brought the fourth-line winger's point total to 15 in 40 games. Lemieux also recorded a team-high seven hits in the loss.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Physical in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux (hand) posted four hits and a minus-1 rating in 13:49 during Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Lemieux missed nine games while his broken hand healed. In his return, he was his usual physical self. The fourth-liner has 13 points, 90 hits and 87 PIM through 36 games. He may be worth a look in deeper formats that reward gritty play, but he shouldn't be expected to produce offense frequently.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Returning from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux (hand) will play in Sunday's game versus the Blue Jackets.

Lemieux will return from a nine-game absence after suffering a broken hand, and he'll bump Micheal Haley out of the lineup. The 23-year-old Lemieux will slot onto the fourth line, and he carries modest offensive upside with 13 points through 35 games, although he's known more for his physicality. He's accrued 87 PIM and 86 hits.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux (hand) could return from injured reserve for Sunday's game against Columbus, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Lemieux has missed the last nine games since being placed on injured reserve but could be returning before the All-Star break. If he isn't ready to suit up Sunday, he could return for Tuesday's game against the Islanders. Lemieux has scored 13 points in 35 games this season.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Faces 3-to-4 week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux will miss 3-to-4 weeks due to a broken hand he suffered in Friday's win over the Hurricanes.

Lemieux will aim to return Jan. 19 against the Blue Jackets, so Michael Haley will likely continue playing on the fourth line for now. The 23-year-old Lemieux has recorded five goals and eight assists over 35 games this year, and losing his physical presence (86 hits) will be a major hit to the bottom six.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Breaks hand Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux suffered a broken hand in Friday's game versus the Hurricanes, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Lemieux suffered the injury in the third period. He'll likely be sidelined for multiple weeks, although head coach David Quinn has not provided a specific timeline for the winger's return. Lemieux has 13 points and 87 PIM in 35 games this season. Expect the Rangers to call up a player from AHL Hartford -- the 23-year-old will likely surface on injured reserve at some point in the near future.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux (undisclosed) will return to action Saturday against Anaheim,'s Dan Arritt reports.

Lemieux is expected to return to a bottom-six role following his one-game absence, skating on the Rangers' fourth line against the Ducks. The 23-year-old American has notched five goals and 12 points while racking up 59 PIM in 29 games this campaign.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux (undisclosed) isn't out for warmups and won't play in Thursday's game against the Sharks, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

Lemieux suffered the injury in Tuesday's game against the Kings, but the specifics of the injury are still uncertain. With the winger sidelined, Michael Haley will draw into the lineup on the fourth line. Lemieux's next chance to suit up is Saturday against the Ducks.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Game-time call against Sharks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux will be a game-time decision versus San Jose on Thursday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.

Lemieux suffered an undisclosed injury in Tuesday's clash with the Kings, raising doubts regarding his availability Thursday. If the winger is sidelined, it could be an opportunity for Michael Haley to finally get into the lineup after sitting in his last four contests.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Prevents Vegas shutout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux scored a goal on two shots and had six hits in Monday's 4-1 loss to Vegas.

Lemieux tallied his fourth goal of the year late in the second period to round out the scoring. He also led all players on either team in hits. The 23-year-old winger has 11 points and 52 PIM in 25 games this season.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Surprise goal scorer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux scored twice, including once while shorthanded, in a 6-5 win over Montreal on Saturday.

Lemieux doesn't always score, but when he does, it's big. His shorthanded goal tied the game at fives. Lemieux isn't much of a fantasy force, but it was a nice game for the buzzsaw.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Deposits PP goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux scored his first goal of the season -- on the power play -- in Thursday's 4-2 win over Carolina.

Lemieux was noticeable all night and finally broke through with a deflection in front. His net-front presence on the second power-play unit could start to pay greater dividends down the line for the 23-year-old agitator.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: In press box Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux was a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Devils.

Lemieux was replaced in the lineup by fellow tough guy Michael Haley. Coach David Quinn employed healthy scratches as a motivational tool frequently last season, and that's likely what's happening after the 23-year-old Lemieux delivered just three shots and four PIM in three scoreless games to start the season.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Agrees on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux and the Rangers have agreed on a one-year contract for the 2019-20 campaign.

The Rangers extended Lemieux a qualifying offer in late June after he tallied six points in 19 games with the club following a midseason trade that landed him in New York. He's entering his last year of arbitration before potentially securing a long-term deal.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Set with QO from Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux was issued a qualifying offer from the Rangers on Tuesday.

After he was buried on the fourth line in Winnipeg, Lemieux caught a break after he was dealt to the Rangers in the Kevin Hayes deal at the trade deadline. He tallied 12 goals and 17 points in 63 games between the Jets and Rangers last campaign. The 23-year-old could be in line for a larger role as the roster begins to take shape heading into the 2019-20 season.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Tops 100 PIM
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux finished the season with 12 goals, five assists and 108 PIM in 63 games between the Jets and Rangers.

Lemieux was buried on the fourth line in Winnipeg, but he quickly endeared himself to the Rangers' faithful after coming over in the Kevin Hayes deal at the deadline. On Broadway, the physical forward amassed six points and 44 PIM in 19 games. Lemieux will likely be penciled in on the third line next season with New York and can certainly help out fantasy owners in search of enforcers with a bit of touch.

Rangers' Brendan Lemieux: Notches two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemieux produced a Gordie Howe hat trick in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Oilers on Monday.

Lemieux got the fight out of the way first, dropping the mitts with Jujhar Khaira in the second period. Seven minutes later, he scored his 11th goal of the season, and then supplied a helper on Brett Howden's equalizer in the third period. Lemieux has two goals and three assists in seven contests since being traded from the Jets, clearly succeeding with almost five more minutes of ice time per game. While it's unlikely the fourth-liner continues this pace, he could be a valuable DFS option for Wednesday in Vancouver.
