Alexander Ivanovich Korolyuk (Russian: Александр Иванович Королюк, born January 15, 1976) is a Russian professional ice hockey winger who currently plays for HC Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk in the Kontinental Hockey League.
Three years later, he jumped to the NHL, making the opening night roster for the Sharks. However, he spent the majority of that season playing in the American Hockey League. Differences with then-head coach Darryl Sutter caused Korolyuk to be a contract hold-out at the start of the 2000–01 NHL season. He would eventually play 700 games for the Sharks that season. Korolyuk only played 32 games the next season and left the team after continued problems with Sutter. He played all of 2002–03 with Ak Bars Kazan.
While playing in Russia, Sutter was fired, paving the way for his return to the Sharks in 2003–04. Playing primarily on the second line with Alyn McCauley and Nils Ekman, Korolyuk posted a career-high 37 points.
That would be his final season in the NHL, however, as Korolyuk returned to Russia during the 2004–05 NHL lockout. On October 1, 2006, his rights were traded to the New Jersey Devils, along with Jim Fahey, for Vladimir Malakhov and a first-round draft pick. Later that season, Korolyuk became interested in an NHL return and requested to Devils management that his rights be traded back to the Sharks. His request was granted and the Sharks re-acquired him February 16, 2007 for a third-round draft pick, only to have the trade voided six days later when Korolyuk did not report for his physical in the alloted time period.
