Luca Sbisa is one of the few Anaheim Ducks to make the trip overseas this season. Sbisa is returning to team HC Lugano back in his native Switzerland. Joining Sbisa is Boston Bruins' forward Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron's contribution of 6 goals, 5 assists and plus-9 in 5 games has helped propel Lugano to 4th place in the Swiss National League A.

On Tuesday, Sbisa and Bergeron face Brooks Laich and the No. 9 Kloten Flyers. Laich has 5 goals, 7 assists and is a plus-11 in 9 games. Somehow, Laich has 26 penalty minutes and Bergeron only has 2 minutes. That seems backwards. Perhaps they can right the world when they play.

One scary-good newcomer to the NLA is Henrik Zetterberg. In two games, Hank has 5 goals, 2 assists and is a plus-7. His EV Zug team may be in 8th place now, but that could change if he keeps up the pace.
