With defenseman Kévin Hecquefeuille unable to act as a reinforcement for HC Davos at the Spengler Cup, forward Alexandre Picard has been called in to help the team for the legendary tournament.

Picard, not to be confused with the Team Canada defenseman with the exact same name, has missed the entire season so far due to an injury. A two-time Spengler Cup champion with Genève-Servette the past two seasons, Picard is coming off of a 20 point campaign in 30 games with GSHC last year in the NLA. The 2015-2016 season is his fourth with the Swiss club after a 67 game NHL stint with the Columbus Blue Jackets split over five seasons.

The 89th running of the Spengler Cup will run from December 26th-31st in Davos, Switzerland. For news, game reviews and rosters, click here.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
