43-year-old Claude Lemieux attempting comeback to the NHL

Claude Lemieux is attempting a comeback to the NHL.

The 43-year-old former Conn Smythe winner has been retired since the end of the 2002-03 season, played one year in Switzerland and joined the front office of the Phoenix RoadRunners of the ECHL.

"I skated with some guys from the Coyotes, including one that played with the Avs for a while, Steve Reinprecht. After a scrimmage, he said to me, 'You're flying out there, you going to play again?' And I said, 'You think I should?' and it kind of went from there," Lemieux told the Denver Post.

Lemieux has 80 goals and 158 points in 233 career playoff games and 379 goals and 785 points in 1197 regular season games.

No team has yet expressed an interest in signing him.
