Kings' Anze Kopitar close to deal to play in Sweden during NHL lockout

 

As the NHL lockout drags into its second day with no end in sight, Los Angeles Kings star center Anze Kopitar is close to a deal with Mora IK of the Swedish league, The Los Angeles Times' Helene Elliott reported via Twitter Monday night.

The LA Times' Lisa Dillman reported that Mora IK is a natural fit for Kopitar because his brother plays for the team. He is also able to sign a deal that would allow him to return to the NHL if and when the lockout ends. Mora IK plays in the second-highest division in Sweden.

Kopitar was one of the key cogs for the Kings in their Stanley Cup-winning season last year, tallying 76 points in all 82 games played. He also had 20 points in 20 playoff games, including an assist in the Kings' Stanley Cup-clinching victory over the Devils.
