Two Nashville Predators prospects and one professional Predator participated in winter tournaments while the National Hockey League was lockedout. Miikka Salomaki and Jim Vesey played in the World Juniors, while Patric Hornqvist played in the Spengler Cup, both great tournaments to watch.
Patric Hornqvist gained some experience during the lockout playing in the Spengler Cup. Hornqvist played for Fribourg Gotteron out of Switzerland in the National A league.
The Nashville forward tallied three assists and took a minor penalty in the four tournament matches. Fribourg and Patric Hornqvist lost to Team Canada--who ended up winning the tournament--in the semifinals, 5-1.
There was no lack of talent in the Spengler Cup, as many followed the same path as Hornqvist in playing overseas. On Fribourg, Max Talbot and Cory Schneider joined the Swedish forward. Team Canada had a very good roster with Jason Spezza, John Tavares, Matt Duchene, Tyler Seguin and more. Forme...

NASHVILLE - And on the 113th day of the lockout, they said let their be hockey.
They are NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr, who emerged early Sunday morning from a final 16-hour bargaining session in New York City to decree the lockout over and that league players and owners would soon ratify a new collective bargaining agreement...
