Jeremy Lauzon is definitely not known for his offensive ability. Even with that he has been on a little bit of a heater as of late scoring three goals and having an assist since December 31 against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Even this heater that Lauzon finds himself on is not enough to take him off of the “Not Hot List”.
Lauzon has played 34 games and has three goals and three assists. The team isn’t leaning on him for offense, so whatever he brings is kind of bonus.
Known for his physicality, Lauzon has answered the call on five occasions in the first half, dropping the gloves and fighting for this Nashville Predators team. With those fights taken out of the equation, Lauzon has 24 penalty minutes for non-fighting penalties.
Lauzon’s total of 49 penalty minutes puts him on pace to surpass his career high of penalty minutes.
When you average a minor penalty once every three games and average such a low amount of offensive output, it’s a bad combination. That is not a method for success at the NHL level.
If this Nashville Predators team is going to be successful over the course of the entire 82 game NHL Regular season, Lauzon is one of several players that needs to play to a higher standard.
