San Jose Sharks: Following the Players Overseas During NHL Lockout

The San Jose Sharks have been one of the more active teams since the NHL lockout began.

Joe Thornton quickly made the jump to his wife's native Switzerland to play for HC Davos with friend and recent New York Rangers addition Rick Nash.

Logan Couture did the same, making his first jump to Europe and signing with Geneve-Servette.

Jason Demers went and signed with Finland, Michal Handzus is in Slovakia and Douglas Murray was the latest to sign overseas. He is headed to Switzerland to sign with Djurgarden.

Also, Tommy Wingels recently signed with a team in Finland called Kookoo.

Martin Havlat recently made some comments, as well, on the current lockout issue.

“We’re not shocked at being called ‘cattle,’” Havlat said. “I can tell you the players have been called a lot worse by some of the guys on the other side. It’s just never been reported publicly. I think it helps that the fans get to hear what we already know. We’re not humans in their eyes; we’re just pieces of meat that get to eat some grass for awhile.”

Havlat is overseas, but has not signed with a team as of yet.

Here is how the Sharks are doing in Europe during the lockout.
