Rich Peverley will play in Finland during the NHL lockout, according to reports out of Finland. The Bruins forward will reportedly play for SM-liiga's JYP.
Peverley's exit is the latest in what has become a major trend amidst the NHL's ongoing labor dispute. A number of Bruins, including Tyler Seguin, Andrew Ference, David Krejci and Dennis Seidenberg, are also playing overseas during the NHL lockout, and more could opt to do the same before all is said and done.
Peverley, who just signed a three-year contract extension with Boston last October, posted 11-31-42 totals in 57 games last season.
