With the status of Adam Lowry still uncertain the team has recalled Brendan Lemieux as insurance for the three-game road trip. With Tobias Enstrom now healthy the Jets had two healthy defenceman in the pressbox in Tucker Poolman and Ben Chiarot. As a consequence they have assigned Tucker Poolman back to the Moose which is good for the young defenceman, as he will get a chance to get back into game action.
The Winnipeg Jets announced today that they have recalled forward Brendan Lemieux from the Manitoba Moose. The Jets also announced that they have assigned defenceman Tucker Poolman to the Moose.
Lemieux, 21, appeared in his first seven career games for the Jets earlier this season and he scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 29/17 versus Pittsburgh. The Denver, Colorado native also has 24 points (9G, 15A) in 24 games for Manitoba this year and currently leads the club with 73 penalty minutes.
Lemieux was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the second round (31st overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft and was traded to the Jets on Feb. 11/15.
I also appear on the Illegal Curve Hockey Show every Saturday on TSN 1290 Winnipeg starting at 9 am.
And I occasionally jump in the play-by-play booth at Bell MTS Place to provide colour analysis during Manitoba Moose games.
