Plenty of positives for Stars who played in Europe

Stars forward Eric Nystrom made no secret about how much he missed the NHL during the lockout. But that doesn’t mean he didn’t enjoy where he spent while the NHL wasn’t playing. Nystrom was one of seven Stars who played in Europe, and he landed in Norway with the Stavanger Oilers in that country’s top division.

“It was amazing. I had so much fun,” Nystrom, a New York native, said. “I guess you realize how spoiled we are over here. Some of those guys are going to a construction job two hours before practice, and then they are going for a few more hours after practice. They just play because they love the game. It was refreshing. It was a really, really close team. It was a lot of fun.”

Nystrom played six games for Stavanger, racking up 14 points (4 goals, 10 assists).

“The guys were all skilled. The systems play is a little different, it’s not as tight system-wise. It was a little bit of a run-and-gun,” Nystrom said. “It’s not known as the strongest league in Europe, but it was perfect. It was just what I needed. I had a great time.”
