Patrice Bergeron decided to play in Switzerland during the lockout despite having offers from teams in Finland.

"Patrice wanted to keep his game in shape, and at the same time he was intrigued by the idea of getting to see a beautiful country," said agent Kent Hughes. "The offer from Finland was attractive, too, but all in all the Swiss experience just looked more appealing." Bergeron signed with HC Lugano on Tuesday to keep himself occupied during the NHL lockout.
