NHL Lockout: Alex Steen Heads To Modo Of The Swedish Elite League

The Swedish Elite League has been dragging their feet on allowing NHLers to be signed by their teams, presumably out of a concern that one team might have an unfair advantage over another. Consider Modo to be the first team with an advantage. Blues forward Alex Steen will be joining his hometown team of Modo, where he played the previous lockout. This team's a little different than the last one -- there won't be any Sedin twins, Peter Forsberg, and Markus Naslund this time out.

The league's website announced the news yesterday; presumably with another option for NHLers, more will be heading to Sweden to pass some time. Steen played in yesterday's 2-1 overtime loss to Brynas.
