Reports out of Switzerland are that Patrick Kane is headed overseas. He will join Swiss league team EHC Biel on a lockout deal, where he’ll play with Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin.
The news was made official on the Biel website.
Kane becomes the fifth Hawks player headed overseas, joining Viktor Stalberg, Michael Frolik, Michal Rozsival and Bryan Bickell.
Pat Brisson, Kane’s agent (who also reps Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby) confirmed to the Sun-Times’ Adam Jahns that Kane will still play in Friday night’s charity game in Rosemont.
