Veteran winger John LeClair demoted to AHL Penguins again

LeClair, 37, was put on waivers last Thursday and sent to the AHL on Saturday after nobody claimed him. The Penguins then immediately put him on re-entry waivers, hoping a team would claim him for half his US$1.5-million salary. But there were no takers.

So Pittsburgh sent him back down Thursday. The former 50-goal scorer had two goals and five assists in 21 games this season.
