Patrik Berglund has signed with Västerås today (2nd-tier)
He landed back home this morning and is expected to start working out with the team and be ready to play soon

Alexander Steen is practicing with MoDo to get in shape and wants to play with them

however, the SEL (swedish elite league) has said no to NHL-ers but it's expected they'll discuss it further now that the lockout is a fact and players start dropping in everywhere

Berglunds team Västerås on the other hand is in the 2-nd tier called Allsvenskan and they've allowed teams to sign NHL-ers (if they can afford it..)

As Västerås presented Berglund today it was confirmed a local business stepped in to make it possible,
the insurancemoney are huge for a nhl-er and can make any team go broke quickly
