    Claude Lemieux to Worcester Sharks?

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 November 20日 Thursday

    Well, the China Sharks are in Tokyo playing the Seibu Prince Rabbits, but Claude Lemieux is not on the roster. This could be because of visa problems, but it’s more likely that he’s managed to secure an AHL contract with the Worcester Sharks (a couple of unconfirmed sources, including an AL player). Who knew that playing for the China Sharks could be the first step in working your way up through the Sharks organization!?

    Finally, a notification on the official AL website.

    シャークスから、クロード・ルミューの登録抹消、アダム・テイラーの再登録手続きが行われました。
    The China Sharks have deactivated Claude Lemieux and reactivated Adam Taylor.
    Plus, some interesting(?) marketing effort by the China Sharks as they’ve relocated to fashionable Shanghai from drab Beijing. Yup, that’s Wade Flaherty in the first picture, and Chinese players (and of course the model) in the other pictures.

    Claude Lemieux out of China?

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 November 19日 Wednesday

    Claude Lemieux‘s brief Asia League adventure with the China Sharks has apparently ended after only 2 games where he recorded 1 assist. Maybe someone saw that being good enough for an AHL contract, but he’s managed to get himself signed onto an AHL team. I wonder which AHL team? San Jose wouldn’t have sent him all the way to China only for a weekend, I guess Lemieux’s agent kept talking with potential suitors while Lemieux made his way over to Shanghai. Ah well, at least he’s not leaving the Asia League because of living condition issues like goalie Kelly Guard who also played for the China Sharks for only 2 games, last season.
