Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Lemelin found regular work in the minors in his career. He was a solid player in front of his net, using all of the size he
had to its fullest.

Like I said, he was a regular in the minors. He did get to see a few games on the NHL level. All the games he saw were
as either a Scout or a Rockie.

He was a part of 2 Calder Cup winners: with the Springfield Indians in 1975, and with the Hershey Bears in 1980. The
Bears were the regular season champs in 1981 when he decided to retire after the season was over.

He sat out for 2 years before trying a comeback with the Muskegon Mohawks of the IHL. He played 56 games with
them and scored 16 points before retiring for good.
Entry Draft: 1974 Fourth Round Pick (56th overall) by the
Kansas City Scouts
