Marcou Brothers Mentioned In Worcester Sharks Notebook

From the Worcester Telegram & Gazette:

For the third straight season, there is a Marcou in the American Hockey League, although this one is not playing for the Sharks.

James Marcou's younger brother, Mike, signed an amateur tryout agreement with Oklahoma City and has already gotten into a game. The Marcou brothers were teammates at UMass until James turned pro at the end of the 2009-10 season.

James said his brother called him to talk things over before his AHL debut. "He was a little nervous," James added.

The Marcous have never played against each other in a high-level game. That could happen next year, or they could be on the same team again. James' season is over -- it never even started, actually -- due to a concussion, although he said he is symptom free.

"I wanted to play last week," he said, "but the Sharks said I'd be better off just shutting it down and starting up next year."

Where that will be is another question, since Marcou's contract is up.

"I'll find somewhere to play," he said, "even if it's not back here."
