2012 Swedish Hockey standings: Douglas Murray returns to Djurgardens IF

Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

San Jose Shark Douglas Murray has taken his talents to Sweden during the lockout. Murray re-joins Djurgardens IF, a team he's played off and on for since U18's.

For those NHL'ers who choose not to play a rough 'n tumble game in the KHL during the lockout, many find their way over to Swedish Elite League. The SEL has produced some of the best hockey players of all time, like Henrik Lundqvist and the Sedin twins. Swedish hockey, and European hockey in general, is considered to be more of a finesse game than a physical one. This style is easier on the NHL player's body as he awaits to go back to the NHL.

As of Monday night, the San Jose Sharks have one representative in the SEL's second tier league, Allsvenskan. Douglas Murray is playing for Djurgardens IF, a team he has played for on and off since U18 hockey. Murray has played in 4 games, has 2 PIM's and is a minus-4 in his current stint with Djurgardens IF.
