Zetterberg heading to Switzerland; Miller going to Scotland

TROY — Three more Wings have decided to leave and play overseas.

Henrik Zetterberg has joined teammate Damien Brunner and signed with EV Zug in Switzerland.

Zetterberg has also been offered a deal from HC Lugano that reportedly included $53,000 a month in insurance that would help cover the cost of his contract in case of injury. He would have made $2,000 a month salary and an apartment.

Drew Miller has signed to play with Breahead Clan, out of Scotland.

On Sunday, Jonathan Ericsson signed with Vita Hasten in Sweden.

The other Wings that are playing in Europe are Pavel Datsyuk (CSKA Moscow, Russia), Valtteri Filppula (Jokerit, Finland), Jakub Kindl (Pardubice, Czech Republic) and Jan Mursak (HDD Olimpija Ljubljana, Slovenia).

All the players will return to Detroit once the lockout is over.
