Lernout, a third-round pick of the Montreal Canadiens in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, joined the Wolves for the 2019-20 season after spending four years in the Canadiens’ organization. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound defenseman made his presence known as a physical force on the blue line — his long hair and wild beard helped to promote a fierce reputation — but his actual amiable personality made him a valuable teammate in the dressing room.
“A lot of people think I’m mean,” Lernout said. “I’ve got these deep eye sockets, too. I always look like I’m frowning. With the beard and the long hair, people think, ‘Oh, crap, look at this guy.’ But once they get talking to me, I’m easygoing. I’m a funny guy. I like to joke around and stuff.
“I come to the rink every day and just try to put a smile on the guys’ faces. Make ‘em laugh. If they’re having a bad day or something, they kinda see me and start giggling. I enjoy that part of coming to the rink. Making guys happy.”
