Brendan Lemieux won’t be suiting up for UND after all.
The forward from Ontario, who committed to UND in February, tweeted that he’s headed to Barrie in the morning. Barrie is home of the OHL franchise that drafted Lemieux during the summer.
At the time of the draft, Lemieux said he would not be reporting to Barrie because of his commitment to UND, and he started the season in Green Bay of the USHL in order to maintain his college eligibility. But obviously, something wasn’t working out there as he left the Gamblers.
Lemieux wasn’t expected to come to UND until 2014, so the coaches have some time to find a replacement for him.
Lemieux, the son of former NHLer Claude Lemieux, had 1 goal and 1 assist in 11 games for the Gamblers.
