Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk spent a majority of the NHL lockout playing for EC Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian league.

It was the ONLY option. It may be a while before Johnny Boychuk drinks a Red Bull. There wasnt water or Gatorade – only Red Bull – in Salzburg Red Bulls locker room — Joe Haggerty (@HackswithHaggs) January 8, 2013 Sugar and caffeine in a can doesn’t exactly seem like the healthiest or safest concoction for professional athletes in the trenches of competition, it actually sounds downright gross. But, hey, I guess when a company pays your team’s bills you have to play by their rules. [Deadspin]
