Kane, Toews interested in options overseas

The Chicago Sun-Times has revealed that Blackhawks star players Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews are open to the possibility of playing in Europe in the event of a long lockout.

The players' agent, Pat Brisson, confirmed to the Sun-Times that his clients could eventually play overseas "under the right circumstances and appropriate time."

Brisson also confirmed exclusively to TFP on Thursday that Pittsburgh Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby would also be open to playing in Europe if the League locks out its players for an extended period.

While the organization and most fans might worry about losing the faces of the Hawks' franchise to the KHL, the players maintain that they simply want to play.

Toews, 24, and Kane, 23, each have three years left on five-year contracts in which they both earn a cap hit of $6.3 million.

In 59 games with the Blackhawks last season, Toews collected 29 goals and 28 assists for 57 points, while Kane posted 23 goals and 43 assists for 66 points in 82 contests.
