Claude Lemieux has assist with Sharks of AHL

Nov 29, 2008 - 2:53 AM PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (Ticker) -- Veteran Claude Lemieux notched an assist in his debut with the Worcester Sharks on Friday, but the team dropped a 5-3 decision to the Providence Bruins in an American Hockey League.

Lemieux, one of the great agitators in NHL history, recorded his first point since 2003 when he assisted on a Tom Cavanagh's eight goal of the season in the second period.

The 43-year-old Lemieux, who has not played in an NHL game since 2002-03 with the Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars, has won the Stanley Cup with three different teams.

He captured his first with Montreal in 1986, added two with New Jersey (1995, 2000) and another with Colorado in 1996.

Lemieux won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1995 as Most Valuable Player of the postseason and ranks ninth all-time with 80 playoff goals.
