The Rapperswil Lakers roster includes the likes of former NHL goaltender David Aebischer and one-time Leafs prospect Robbie Earl. Doug Gilmour also spent some time there during the lockout in 1994.
With each announcement of where a player plans to spend the lockout it becomes increasingly clear the players are in this for the long haul. Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin, who will play in the KHL during the lockout, indicated that he is ready to spend the whole season in Russia if need be.
Good news is the Binghamton Senators begin their camp in the next few days and plenty of prospects and current Sens are expected to be present.
- According to Andy Strickland, the Senators are hoping they'll be able to send Ben Bishop to Binghamton when the AHL season starts. Bishop is on a one way contract this season.
