These are busy times for Dallas forward Eric Nystrom.
On Friday, it was announced Nystrom had agreed to join the Stavanger Oilers of the Norwegian league on a lockout deal — news came shortly after we reported Nystrom agreed to coach Team USA at the 2013 World Maccabiah Games.
The 29-year-old winger is coming off a highly successful 2011-12 campaign with the Stars. He finished fifth on the team in goals, with 16, and notched a career-best 21 points, all while averaging the most ice time of his five-year career (13:45).
The son of former Islanders great Bob Nystrom, Eric is now set to join a Norwegian league — the GET-ligaen — that has been steadily adding NHL talent as the lockout drags on.
Update: Sounds as though Skille is back in North America.
