Dennis Seidenberg is contemplating joining Adler Manneheim if an extended lockout occurs.
With the threat of a labor unrest hanging over the 2012-13 NHL season, Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg is contemplating playing for Adler Manneheim of the German professional league Deutsche Eishockey Liga, if an extended lockout were to take place.
Seidenberg has stated that he would enjoy an opportunity to play with his younger brother Yannick, who is a member of Adler, but is still undecided as to the course of action he will potentially take.
"It would be nice to play with him if it gets to that point," said Seidenberg. "But for now, I haven't really put enough thought into it to say what I'm going to do."
As the expiration date on the current collective bargaining agreement between the NHL owners and player's association fast approaches, commissioner Gary Bettman has stated that the players will be locked out if a new deal is not in place by the Sept. 15 deadline.
This has caused some players to begin looking at alternative employment options if an extended lockout were to occur.
