Claude Lemieux Signs With Sharks, China Sharks

from jhockey,

Claude Lemieux, who had been working out in Arizona to prepare for an NHL comeback attempt, was somehow convinced to play hockey in Asia with the China Sharks. The move happened quickly and he has already suited up for the Chinese team against Anyang Halla in the Asia League games this past weekend

It remains to be seen how long Lemieux will remain with the Sharks. The China Sharks are owned by the NHL’s San Jose Sharks. San Jose General Manager Doug Wilson, CFO Charlie Faas and CEO Greg Jamison put Lemieux in contact with China Sharks GM Chris Collins, and Lemieux agreed to travel across the Pacific for a trial run with the China Sharks.
