Thoresen Finding Swiss Success

From Bill Meltzer at NHL.com:

[Patrick] Thoresen elected to play this season Europe because he was unable to get a 1-way contract in the NHL and stood to make more money playing in Switzerland than he would have on the minor-league end of a 2-way deal in the NHL. But his ambition is not to win the Swiss scoring title. He has made clear all along that we wants to return to North America.

“My goal is to play well enough to get a 1-way contract and become an NHL player again,” he said.

Thoresen has 31 points in 19 games this season.
