With the NHL lockout still ongoing without an end in sight, many players have taken their talents overseas. Itís not easy for players to adjust to the larger ice surfaces and the different style of play, but staying in shape and keeping the hockey mindset is what is important.
There are a few Phoenix Coyotes playing in Europe, and a few of them are putting up some solid numbers.
Radim Vrbata (BK Mlada Boleslav)
Vrbata has played two games for his hometown team in the Czech Republicís second division. He has two points so far but playing against much weaker competition it is expected that heíll put up big numbers. Vrbata has led the Coyotes in goals two out of the past three years and they will need that trend to continue when the NHL starts back up.
