Brendan Lemieux traded to LA

The Rangers may be making room for not only Vitali Kravtsov but also players like Morgan Barron. Lemieux was signed this summer to a two year deal and was possibly going to have to be exposed to the Seattle Kraken in expansion.

Lemieux has 7 points in 30 games on the season. The 25 year-old left wing has 59 penalty minutes and play a rugged but sometimes undisciplined game.

Update: Lemieux for L.A.’s fourth round pick.
