Kapanen to Switzerland

Today Niko Kapanen signed a oneyear-contract with Zug of the swiss League. But this contract is only valid, when he doesnt receive an oneway-contract in the NHL. What are his chanced to receive this oneway-contract and what can you tell me about the player himself?

He'll almost certainly get a one-way contract with the Stars when they decide to sign players. I don't know whether their plans are to qualify people and wait until the CBA gets resolved or what though.

Kapanen's a decent developing two-way center at the NHL level. He's got great quickeness and good hockey sense, but he's really small. His faceoffs were poor at the NHL level. He's definitely more of a playmaker than a goal-scorer. He competes hard at both ends of the rink. He should do pretty well in Europe should he go over there.
