Despite starring stateside in the NHL, a pair of Boston Bruins are finding that there are no easy nights on the Swiss National League hockey schedule.
Bruins Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron are each playing in the league, but through almost 20 games of action, neither is having the level of success many expected when the pair went over to Switzerland during the lockout.
Seguin, an NHL All-Star in 2012, finds himself as the second-leading scorer on his EHC Biel club, a club which currently just sits at sixth in the standings with 26 points. Meanwhile, Bergeron's HC Lugano club is fourth in the standings, but he is personally struggling with just 11 total points.
Amongst the other NHL players in the Swiss National League, a couple is having success for league leader Genève Servette.
San Jose’s Logan Couture has 16 points and the Canadiens’ Yannick Weber has eight for Genève Servette, which finds itself atop the National League standings.
