Swedish team Mora IK is making a bid to gain Anze Kopitar‘s services during the lockout.

The club needs to clear up insurance money to make it happen, according to a translated article from hockeysverige.se. In an amusing twist, the team is even asking for donations to reach its goal.

One might find it odd that Kopitar would play for a team in Sweden’s second league, yet PHT’s Joe Yerdon found out that his brother Gasper Kopitar is on Mora’s roster.

(Kopitar may need to dominate inferior competition in a different number if he signs, as Patrick Bjorkstrand currently sports his No. 11.)
