With the 2020-21 seasons overseas expected to start up on their normal schedule, several players have been loaned overseas and there were a few more in recent days. Here is a rundown of those moves with each player expected to return for NHL training camps.
- Recently-signed Bruins winger Robert Lantosi has joined HK Nitra in the Slovak Extraliga, per a team release. The 24-year-old had a good first season in North America, posting 11 goals and 20 assists in 50 games with AHL Providence which helped him get converted to an NHL deal for the upcoming season. Lantosi is no stranger to Nitra, having played there in 2018-19 where he led the team in points while finishing fifth overall in league scoring.
- Penguins winger Radim Zohorna is heading back to the Czech league as BK Mlada Boleslav announced that he will be back with them to start next season. The 24-year-old spent the last two seasons with that program and had a career best 10 goals and 12 assists with them last season. That was enough to convince Pittsburgh to sign him back in April.
- On top of adding Aleksi Heponiemi from Florida on Sunday, MODO of the SHL announced that they’ve also added Maple Leafs blueliner Jesper Lindgren. The 23-year-old played in 31 games with the AHL Marlies this season, picking up a goal and eight assists. While Lindgren briefly played in Finland before coming to North America, he spent the bulk of his early development in MODO’s program from 2013-14 through 2016-17.
