SAN JOSE – 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.
Lemieux was signed to an AHL contract with the Worcester Sharks, San Jose’s top development affiliate in the American Hockey League, on Nov. 25.
In 14 games with Worcester, Lemieux has posted six points (two goals, four assists) and 12 penalty minutes and is +3.
