Bickell to play in Europe during lockout

Bickell to play in Europe during lockout

First it was Michael Frolik, then Michal Rozsival.  Now, Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell is headed overseas to play during the lockout.

Yep...the hockey hotbed that is Austria.  Bickell will play for HC Znojmo.

Bickell is due to be an unrestricted free agent this coming summer.  The 2012-13 campaign was supposed to be a big one for him.  After a down season last year, he needed a good showing this season to up his value...either to the Blackhawks or potential suitors.  Hopefully, he'll still get that chance.
