From www.ongoalanalysis.com, with love.
It was announced today via Sharks.NHL.com that San Jose has recalled veteran and recently-returned-to-hockey, Claude Lemieux. For anyone following the progress of Claude's desire to return to the NHL over the past few months since his 'tryout' agreement and signing as a free agent in late December with the Sharks this news should be no surprise.
It is said the former most-hated-agitator in the NHL is in excellent physical conditioning and has played 23 games with minor affiliate, Worcester Sharks (AHL) where he posted 3 goals, 8 assists and 24 PIMs.
With Sean Avery on 'sabatical' (anger management, shopping, etc.) and all the recent discussions of whether fighting belongs in the modern NHL, we figured it was time to bring back the nasty.
So, welcome back, Turtle!
And don't think it escapes us the recall comes only 2 days AFTER the much-touted big game between the top two in the West this past weekend, where the Sharks beat the Red Wings 6-5.
Welcome back to the Great Game and let the FUN begin....!
