Boucher in Swiss League @ Zug

Not sure if it was noted already but I just noticed Brian Boucher is playing this season for Zug. I was surprised because I thought he was destined to be an AHL ast. Coach.

Anyone know the circumstances of the signing or if he was offered a gig by Flyers org? I guess he still wanted to play and didn't get NHL or AHL offers.

I'm sure as soon as he decides to hang them up he'll have a spot in the org waiting for him, even if it's only a scouting one to start. Eventually I could see him moving on to something better but not until he retires.

Perfect...considering how he played like swiss cheese in the latter part of his career. Bryz should join him and be King Swiss...

The signing happened in mid-July. One report said the team was debating Boucher or Rick DiPietro. It was mentioned in a thread, here, but the NBC Sports report:

Bryz is probably in Siberia trying to hunt bears he's so afraid of

Will Boucher be eligible for Switzerland for the winter olympics in Russia? I think you have to be a citizen but I could be wrong.
