Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann has signed a four game deal with Södertälje SK of Sweden's second division. High insurance costs were preventing Södertälje SK from signing him for a while. Grossmann is the eleventh Flyer to head overseas during the lockout joining Fedotenko, Voracek, Bryzgalov, Simmonds, Read, Briere, Giroux, probably Hartnell, Talbot, and Gervais.
Flyers and Södertälje SK forward Matt Read: "He was one of our top defensemen in the Playoffs, matched against Crosby and Malkin. I've talked to him a lot the last few days and, of course, it's going to be really fun to play together again."
Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler also signed there today, Grossmann will be on a pair with him.
