Lemieux is a bottom six winger that brings an edge to the game that the Kings could use. He has 7 points in 31 games played and currently has 59 penalty minutes, last season he finished with 18 points in 59 games with 111 penalty minutes.
The Rangers in turn get a lottery ticket of a draft pick and a free spot on their roster, which it looks like they will need according to Elliotte Friedman.
