Lenet on the bubble of retirement
July 26th, 2011
While several of the CIP Habs have officially signed for the PHN 2011-2012 season, Brad Lenet is still a hold out. As the above story suggests, Lenet has seriously considered retirement. IS THIS TRUE?? This reporter doubts it, as rumour has it that he is holding out to get the C and not just be an A. Long passed over for the job, Lenet was particularly miffed this past season when long standing Captain Dan Kuzmarov passed the C over to Rob Kleinman, considered for most of his career a journeyman at best. Having played in 68 PHN regular season games, Lenet has scored 36 goals and tallied 56 assists for 92 points. His best season was the PHN Winter 2010/2011 season where he had a career high 26 points.
In the playoffs, Lenet is more than a point a game guy, with 19 points in 14 playoff appearances. For more of his career stats, please click HERE!
Described by his teammates with high regard, team Captain Rob Kleinman had this to say about Lenet, “Offensive d-man who likes to join the rush…hard slapshot from the point. Not dynamic in the offensive zone but has excellent hand-eye coordination…makes a strong first pass out of the defensive zone…Capable of putting up excellent offensive numbers at the forward position…tends to gamble defensively but has made efforts to curb this tendency…strong team player. Can occasionally get lazy defensively but has overcome this with improved conditioning. Physical and prone to questionable penalties though this has decreased with lower testosterone levels. Summary: Aging, top pairing offensive D-man and power play specialist. Good guy and can be counted on to eat after the game.”
If he resigns or retires, the PHN is lucky to have had the likes of Brad Lenet grace its ice!
Stay tuned for the up-to-date signings going on in the PHN!
See you on the ice!
