Though there are rumors of Marty St. Louis and Steven Stamkos signing a European contract, they haven’t yet made it official. The first Bolt to sign over seas is Victor Hedman. He signed with Barys Astana of the Russian Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He is expected to report on Friday.

“He wants to play in the best league there is right now,” agent Peter Wallen said of finding a place for Hedman to play during the NHL lockout.
