NHL confirms: Rangers will play Kings, Ducks in Sweden

First the Kings, on Oct. 7 in Stockholm's Globe Arena, then the Kings on the 8th.  There may also be an exhibition game in Europe, unclear on that so far. The Rangers swept a two-game series against Tampa in Prague in 2008.

Henrik Lundqvist will be there. Maybe Zuccarello, if he makes club next season.

In other news, left wing Carl Hagelin, 22, who scored 18 goals and added 31 assists in 44 games as a senior with the University of Michigan this season, signed a pro contract and will play for the Connecticut Whale this weekend. Hagelin, who was born in Sweden, was a sixth-round draft pick in 2007. He is expected to compete for a spot on the Rangers next season.
