Damien Brunner Rated As Europe's Most-Productive NHL Player During Lockout

Damien Brunner is a force in Europe, but is still waiting to play his first NHL game.
NHL Detroit Red Wings center Damien Brunner "is the most-productive player that the NHL lockout has brought to Europe," according to Stephan Roth of BLICK. Brunner, who joined Swiss National League A club EV Zug during the lockout, "has scored more points than any other NHL player" in Europe, which is impressive considering the talent that has flocked across the continent. In the Czech Republic, 40-year-old Jaromir Jagr plays for Kladno, the club his father once owned and he now manages and finances. In Russia, Evgeni Malkin, Alexander Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuk and Pavel Datsyuk create "nightmares" for opposing goalies. In the NLA, Henrik Zetterberg, Joe Thornton, Rick Nash, Patrice Bergeron, John Tavares and Tyler Seguin "excite the crowds." However, it is Brunner who leads them all with 23 goals and 25 assists in 27 games in the NLA (BLICK, 12/12).
