NHLers Still Dangling Despite Lockout

The horde of NHLers in Europe is growing every day with the lockout and while there is no NHL hockey highlights to be watched we are still getting treated to European highlights of NHLers scoring goals in Nascar uniforms. It's almost three weeks into the lockout and many of the NHLers playing overseas have won over their home teams hearts with their skill that clearly separates them from the rest of the league. Some are tearing up their leagues and they should overtake scoring leaders shorty if they keep their scoring pace up. It's been exciting hockey - despite not being NHL hockey - and as a hockey fan you have to appreciate that.

Here are some of our favourite goals from NHLers in Europe:

This is Anze Kopitar doing "The Forsberg" for Mora IK in the HockeyAllsvenskan:


One of our favourite prospects, Vladimir Tarasenko, scored on this dirty dangle for SKA St. Petersburg in the Kontinental Hockey League:


Alexander Semin has been having some fun playing for free in the VHL (the KHL's farm league) for his hometown, Sokol Krasnoyarsk. Here he is scoring two goals (at 10 seconds and 1 minute) for his 90-year-old grandmother:


HC Kladno in the Czech Extraliga has benefited the most from the NHL Lockout as the team's majority owner, Jaromir Jagr, brought some friends with him to the team. Here's Jagr finishing a beautiful passing play from Tomas Plekanec and Jiri Tlusty:


In the Swiss National League A, Rick Nash and Joe Thornton were quick to return to their 2004-05 Lockout club, HC Davos. In their first game, Nash potted this hat trick (his second goal is our favourite):


As this NHL Lockout drags on, we're guaranteed to see more NHLers in Europe dangling and scoring highlight reel goals so we'll be sure to keep you updated.
