Though it seemed like a natural fit for P.J. Axelsson to enjoy a homecoming in Stockholm or for Zdeno Chara [1] to have a hero’s welcome in Trencin, Czechoslovakia, the NHL [2] announced this afternoon that the Red Wing, Blues, Blackhawks and Panthers will be the four teams opening the 2009-10 season in Europe next year. There were previous rumblings that the B’s were being considered for “NHL [3] Premiere 2009″, but instead the four teams will play respective games in Sweden and Finland on Oct. 2-3.
