As of 10:14am ET, Jan. 04, 2013

The Collective Bargaining Agreement between the NHL and NHLPA has expired. As of 12:00am ET, on Sept. 16, 2012, the NHL has locked out its players.

As a result, several NHL athletes are making alternative plans to play hockey this season. Below is a list of confirmed player signings with teams outside of the NHL. While there are, and will continue to be, numerous reports of various players set to join clubs in other Leagues, this list is strictly of those who have officially signed or agreed to terms with new teams during the lockout.

Please note that all contracts signed overseas include an opt-out clause. Should the NHL lockout end and the seasons resume, these players will return to their respective NHL clubs.
