Arizona State has scored a magnificent addition.

Austin Lemieux, son of former NHL superstar Mario, will join the NCAA's Arizona State Sun Devils next season, reports Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports, citing sources.

Mario Lemieux and @SunDevilHockey assistant coach Alex Hicks played together with the @penguins in the 1996-97 NHL season.

The 20-year-old currently plays for the Islanders Hockey Club of the U.S. Premier Hockey League. He spent last season with the USHL's Omaha Lancers, scoring 14 points in 57 games, and has previously participated in Pittsburgh Penguins prospect camp.

Not a bad way for Austin Lemieux and Mario to spend their Father's Day!

Austin will join many NHL bloodlines who make their hockey life in the Grand Canyon State, with Max Domi, Ryan MacInnis, and Henrik Samuelsson - all sons of former NHLers - all part of the nearby Arizona Coyotes organization.
