San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed forward Claude Lemieux to a two-way contract. Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“This is simply the next step in the evaluation process with Claude,” said Wilson.
Lemieux must still clear NHL waivers, which would run through Tues., Dec. 30 at Noon PST. Should he clear waivers, Wilson said he would be assigned back to Worcester.
I really want to get a Sharks fan opinion on this one. Of all the old guys to go after, (Shanahan, Forsberg, Gretzky, Howe) the Sharks sign Claude Lemieux.
I am only going to say one phrase and leave it at that: WTF!!!?!?!?!
