Tell us how you really feel, Brady Tkachuk.

The Senators star didn’t hold back after Kings winger and former Ranger Brendan Lemieux incurred a match penalty and was ejected from Saturday’s game after Tkachuk said Lemieux bit his hand during a fight.

“This is the one time I’m going to answer this,” Tkachuk said, per the Ottawa Sun. “It was the most gutless thing somebody could ever do. This guy, you can ask any one of his teammates, nobody ever wants to play with him. This guy is a bad guy and a bad teammate, he focuses on himself all the time.

“The guy’s just a joke. He shouldn’t be in the league. This guy’s gutless. No other team wants him. He’s going to keep begging to be in the NHL, but no other team wants him, he’s an absolute joke. I can’t even wrap my head around it. People don’t even do this. He’s just a bad guy.

“It’s outrageous. Kids don’t even do that anymore. Babies do that. I don’t even know what he was thinking. He’s just a complete brick head. He’s got nothing up there. Bad guy, bad player, but what a joke he is.”

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced Sunday that Lemieux has been offered a Zoom hearing over the incident. No date has been set.

The Kings won the game, 4-2, following two goals from Carl Grundstrom, to snap a five-game skid. Kings coach Todd McLellan was concerned that Lemieux could be suspended.

“We need him playing every night,” McLellan told reporters. “We need him playing every minute that he gets. Offensively, defensively, physically, emotionally. And if we happen to lose him for any period of time, we’ll miss him. And he has to understand how important he’s become.”

The Rangers traded Lemieux to the Kings in March for a 2021 fourth-round pick, which the Rangers used on high school forward Brody Lamb.
