Young Lemieux Draws Attention

from the Beaver County Times,
Mikael Lemieux has mostly learned to ignore them, the misguided taunts directed his way during hockey games. But they all start pretty much the same way. "They'll be skating up behind me and say: 'You're not as good,'" Mikael Lemieux said. "People say that a lot. It's kind of hard." That's the life of a 16-year-old hockey player when your uncle was arguably the greatest player in NHL history. Mikael's father is Alain Lemieux, the older brother of Penguins owner and Hall of Fame center Mario Lemieux.
