He has never played / he never played

Hi everyone!
I can't really focus on the difference between:

"He has never played in that team"
"He never played in that team"

Thank you very much.

    I would interpret in this way:

    "He has never played on that team" - He may still play on that team, but he hasn't to date

    "He never played on that team" - Either someone said that he had and this is in contradiction to that assertion, or he never played on that team and never will (perhaps because he is deceased.)
