The Swedish Elite League won’t accept locked-out NHLers

Recommended Posts


According to IIHF communications director Szymon Szemberg, the Swedish Elite League isn’t about to turn itself into a temporary refuge for locked-out NHL players.


Swedish league decided today it will not accept any short-term contracts of locked-out NHLers. Players can only sign for minumum 1 season.


This means that SWE league will not sign any locked-out NHLers under contract as no one can commit for a full season in Europe.

It’s not clear if the SEL’s stance would change should the NHL season be canceled. Hopefully, we won’t have to find out.
