Underestimated???

He had a very decent career in the "Q" and AHL...

TOTAL NHL GP10 G2 A2 PTS4 E

AHL GP315 G103 A137 PTS240 +10

QMJHL GP266 G164 A218 PTS382 +33

Great pick up for the bulldogs. Could fill in the fourth line with his limited NHL experience.

I like this pick-up.

An ideal replacement for Locke I imagine. Maxwell, White, and Desharnais will have to earn their minutes as Lehoux has a proven track record as a highly effective scoring center in the AHL. I'm glad to get him as he should be a main part in the Hamilton offense and if injury troubles happen in Montreal he could be a good option if they require a offensive center.

Even 4 points in 10 NHL games is decent for your first 10 NHL games. With the loss of some centers in our organization, we needed this. At the least, it has effectively replaced Locke as a depth option in my opinion. I still feel we're short due to losing Grabs and Smokes, but this move does help.

did we need this guy.?.?.?. we have a lot of good rookies and he is already 26 years old and he never played like an nhl player...

He is a project with some serious upside. Send him to Hamilton to see what he can do and help the team do well. If he does well good if not he is good depth. Good move.
