Swiss Hockey schedule 2012: Couture, Thornton In Action Tuesday

Jeff Gross

Logan Couture and his first place GE Servette teammates face an NHL player-less HC FR Gotteron on Tuesday. The two teams are first and second in the league.

San Jose Sharks players Logan Couture and Joe Thornton made their way over to Switzerland and the National League A for the lockout, but not as teammates.

Couture plays for the first place GE Servette contributing 3 goals, 7 assists and a plus-6 in 10 games. GE Servette takes on the second place HC FR Gotteron. Gotteron is one of two Swiss teams devoid of NHL players.

Thornton spent the previous lockout in Switzerland and liked it so much, he came back. On HC Davos, Thornton and Rick Nash have become quite the scoring tandem, despite Nash's shoulder injury. Together, Tornton and Nash have 10 goals and 12 assists. The pair will face Tyler Ennis and Jared Spurgeon with the SCL Tigers.
