Bettman: NHL will return to Europe next 2 years

Blue Jackets headed to Helsinki in 2020 for two games vs. Avalanche

Going into Thursday's game, Columbus had the fourth-lowest shooting percentage in the league in five-on-five play (6.55 percent) and the second-lowest in all situations (7.21 percent). There have been 26 regular-season National Hockey League games played in Europe, with these two contests being the 27th and 28th such games. "We are also looking forward to working with the NHL and the Nashville Predators to continue our collective efforts to grow the game of hockey in worldwide markets".

The Bruins have a couple more Czechs in the pipeline, too, with forward Jakub Lauko and defenseman Jakub Zboril. Krejci was born in Sternberk and played junior hockey for HC Kladno. He has represented the Czech Republic in worldwide play on several occasions and has been awarded the Golden Hockey Stick as the top hockey player from the Czech Republic each of the last three years in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

This will also be the last Blue Jackets overall look at the Pepsi Middle for two seasons, as they will fulfill Colorado in Helsinki, Finland, up coming yr for the 2020 NHL World Sequence.


"Opening the season in Prague and Northern Ireland back in 2010 was a very special experience to share with my family, friends and teammates", said Krejci. The passionate fans and atmosphere were something I'll never forget. "He's equipped to lengthen plays and retain plays alive in the offensive zone with his puck safety", Bednar stated about the ahead who is becoming rewarded for his sturdy start out to the year. They managed to hold the Coyotes to two goals in their last game and will need a similar effort against the Avalanche to get the win.

Nashville's only time playing overseas in team history came against the Pittsburgh Penguins to open the 2000 season, where the Preds split two games with the Penguins in Saitama City, Japan. However, they struggled during their losing streak and gave up 3.6 goals per game. The B's and Calgary Flames played each other twice in China during the 2018 preseason.

The Bruins will begin next season far from home, as the team will participate in the NHL Global Series and begin their 2020-21 schedule with a head-to-head with the Nashville Predators in Prague, Czech Republic.
