Nice. I said yesterday that Boo on that line would be a good idea. They need a shot of energy.
he's been overdue. little fireball just can't buy a goal.
Watch the Devils go on a winning streak now. He may be a terrible player, but he could be a good luck charm.
Looks like Sir Claude stopped by today (would love to draft his son btw if these similar traits to his dad thing is for real)
Former Devil Claude Lemieux was at Air Canada Centre this morning to film an interview with MSG Network for Scott Niedermayer’s number retirement ceremony on Dec. 16. Lemieux said he moved to Toronto two years ago, so his son, Brendan, could play a higher level of youth hockey.
Brendan, a 15-year-old left wing, is eligible for the next OHL draft, and apparently plays a bit like his father.
“We’ll find out whether he’s going to go to college,” the 1995 Conn Smythe winner said. “We’re in the process of looking at options. He competes really hard. He’s got a lot of the same qualities that I had and the same problems that I had. But he’s doing well. He controls his emotions probably better than I did.”
Lemieux has two jobs. He runs the North American division of a Switzerland-based player agency, 4Sports and Entertainment, from an office in Toronto, and he is also the chairman of Graf Canada (hockey equipment).
“I’m on the road quite a bit,” he said.
Lemieux won’t be there when Niedermayer’s No. 27 is retired a week from Friday, but he says it’s definitely something Niedermayer deserves.
“It’s not a surprise,” said Lemieux, who played with Niedermayer on the Devils’ 1995 and 2000 Stanley Cup teams. “It’s a great honor, obviously well deserved. He’ll be going in the Hockey Hall of Fame very soon and he’s one of the best of all time.”
