It looks like David Moss might end up playing in Switzerland next season, but nothing’s set in stone.

Moss inked a two-year contract with a Swiss club, but has a one-week out clause if he can find an NHL team that will see eye-to-eye with him, according to Fox Sports’ Andy Strickland.

The 32-year-old forward had eight goals and 22 points in 79 games with the Arizona (then Phoenix) Coyotes in 2013-14. Moss also had 120 hits and 49 blocked shots. He’s coming off of a two-year, $4.2 million contract.

He wasn’t taken in the 2001 NHL Entry until the seventh round, but he’s gone on to have a solid career. After honing his game at the University of Michigan and getting a bit of additional seasoning in the minors, Moss has record 74 goals and 92 assists in 441 NHL games with the Calgary Flames and Coyotes.

    What? I’m surprised that no clubs have been interested in him, unless he’s seeking some absurd contract. But I doubt a Swiss team can give him much more. He’s not a top-6 forward but he’s a good two way player who can hit and chip in on offense too, you can never have enough of those guys. I’ll be really surprised if he ends up in Switzerland.

    Ya im surprised he hasn’t signed with another team yet. moss is at best a 3rd liner but he eats up mins on the pk and plays along the boards pretty well on the forecheck. Nothing fancy but is consistent on the defensive side of the puck.
