Well things are starting to get real around the NHL. Today via his Twitter account, Blackhawks star Patrick Kane announced today that he will be playing with a Swiss team, the EHC Biel:
Kane is the first Blackhawks player of significance to head oversees during the lockout. He leaves on Sunday for Switzerland and who knows when he will be able to return since the NHL and the union currently have no talks scheduled. I have a feeling this is just the first of many stars to head oversees. Gary Bettman is on the clock. End this lockout.
