Brendan Lemieux Just Like Dad

from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,

Left wing Brendan Lemieux of the Barrie Colts considers himself the silent but deadly type.

As the son of former NHL player and four-time Stanley Cup champion Claude Lemieux, that shouldn't come as a surprise. The family patriarch made a living out of making life miserable for the opposition whenever he stepped on the ice, and it usually worked.

Does dad notice similarities between his style and the way his son now attacks the game?

"Yes, Brendan plays a very similar style of hockey that I did back when I played," Claude Lemieux told NHL.com. "Having said that, it's hard to compare playing today's game versus the old NHL of the '80s and '90s. The game today is less physical and much more of a skill game played at a faster pace, so Brendan is forced to be different than I was because of the way the game is played."
