acquired by the Montreal Juniors.
Right winger Alex Lemieux, an 18 year old, was picked up from the Halifax Moosehead in exchange for a 3rd round pick in 2012.
Lemieux has scored 3 goals and added 8 assists through 34 games played this season.
He is listed at 5'11" and 194 lbs and has earned 69 penalty minutes so far this season.
Lemieux scored 10 of his 11 points during the first 13 games this season however since the Moosehead fired their coach, Lemieux has earned only 1 point in his last 21 games played. Lemieux wasn't willing to return to Halifax after the Christmas break and was subsequently placed on the trading block.
