With the lockout looking like it could go on for a while I thought I would share an interesting story from my time in Hungary last lockout. I went over there in January with my cousin and great friend Rob Niedermayer. It was great to play in an organized league after so many months of just waiting around.
We had a great time there and we were treated incredibly well. I have many great stories from our time in Hungary but I will start with this one because it is something I don't think I will see again!

The Edmonton Oilers have a lot of prospects either in the system, in junior, college or European leagues. We're early into the regular season in most of these leagues and early returns for the top 20 (and beyond) is very positive.

Four more KHL highlight packs for you, courtesy of our friends Steve Dangle and Andrey Osadchenko, who have so graciously filtered through the cyrillic lettering and thick Eastern European accents to bring us an English version.
As they do most nights, of course, here as a regular feature at the Nations. Tonight, Mikhail Grabovski scores an OT winner for Red Army and Caps prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov has a beautiful tally. Enjoy.
