Another one heads to Europe!

Niklas Hjalmarsson has signed with Bolanzo-Bozen a Series A squad in Italy.  Hjarlmarsson is suppose to join the team Friday.  He joins a handful of European born Hawks and Patrick Kane in playing for teams in Europe during the lockout.

Hjalmarsson who has been the centerpiece of Blackhawks trade rumors will get to preview what it’s like to wear another uniform while in Italy.

None of this would matter if there wasn’t a lockout.  But there is!!
