Bickell set to play in Europe

Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell revealed via his Twitter account late on Tuesday that he is heading overseas to play in Austria during the work stoppage.

"Tomorrow is the day I bring my skills overseas. #Austria," he posted on Twitter.

Bickell, 26, is the first Hawks player from North America to sign in Europe during the NHL lockout.

He is expected to play for HC Znojmo, a Czech Republic-based team playing in the Austrian League.

Bickell, who has just a year left on his three-contract with the Hawks, posted nine goals and 15 assists for 24 points in 71 games last season.
