Defenceman Chris Campoli will play the rest of the 2012-13 season with a team in Switzerland, according to Swiss media reports.
The Geneva Tribune and Swiss Hockey News reported that Campoli, who helped negotiate a new NHL collective bargaining agreement, has signed for the balance of the season with Geneva of Switzerland's top league. Geneva used its eighth and last foreign-player license to sign him.
Campoli, a 28-year-old Mississauga, Ont., native, played for the Montreal Canadiens last season, recording two goals and nine assists, but his contract was not renewed. He was an unrestricted free agent while serving as a member of the NHL Players Association's negotiating committee during the lockout. He had been seeking a new team since the lockout ended in early January.
