Penguins' Engelland to head to Norway
Share with others:
The Penguins' Deryk Engelland has signed with RIHK in the top league in Norway, according to that club.
The rugged defenseman will join Florida forward Jack Skille, who signed Thursday with RIHK, which stands for Rosenborg Ishockeyklubb Elite. It's in the Get-ligaen.
Engelland said from the start of the NHL lockout that he would look for work elsewhere if the work stoppage persisted. He joins forwards Evgeni Malkin (Metallurg Magnitogorsk in the KHL) and Dustin Jeffrey (Medvescak Zagreb in Croatia) as Penguins who have signed to play in Europe.
