The Detroit Red Wings have loaned yet another player overseas as negotiations continue between the NHL and NHLPA regarding the status of next season.
Goaltender Calvin Pickard, who played mostly with the Grand Rapids Griffins last season, has been loaned to the Vienna Capitals of the ICEHL, Austria’s top-tier hockey league.
A veteran of over 100 NHL games, Pickard has suited up for several NHL teams over his career. He appeared in 33 games with Grand Rapids last year, posting a 17-12-4 record.
Pickard joins Moritz Seider, Filip Hronek, Michael Rasmussen, Filip Zadina, and Joe Veleno in journeying across the Atlantic.
