He is one of the dirtiest hockey players in the history of the dirty game. Now he is doing the impossible, portraying himself as soft, warm-hearted, artistic and someone you can't help but like.
Claude Lemieux has surprisingly opened himself up to the world with a marvelous showing in CBC's Battle of the Blades where former hockey players try their hand at figure skating. Not only has Lemieux proven to be an elegant and artistic ice dancer, but now he's warmed all of our hearts by actually singing the song he and Shae-Lynn Bourne danced to, Hallelujah by the great Canadian Leonard Cohen. Kathryn Rose co-composed the song with "Pepe."
