With the NHL lockout a reality, players such as Matt Duchene, Gabriel Landeskog and Anze Kopitar are in Sweden with different clubs.

The Swedish hockey leagues are starting to heat up, with the schedules in full swing.

Anze Kopitar, Gabriel Landeskog and Matt Duchene are a few of the headliners from the NHL who are playing in Sweden due to the current NHL lockout that has put many players out of work.

In Kopitar's case, the Croatian is playing alongside his brother for Mora IK of the Allsvenskan while the NHL tries to hammer out a deal with the players' union. On Monday, Mora IK takes on Asploven HC in FM Mattsson Arena.

Landeskog is with Djurgarden, who plays Tuesday on the road against Orebro HK.

Here is a complete look at the Allsvenskan schedule.

Over in the Elitserien, Duchene has hooked up with Frolunda while the Colorado Avalanche can't put his services to use. Forlunda has been struggling this season but will get a chance to turn things around on Monday evening in a tilt against Timra IK.

Here is a complete look at the Elitserien schedule.
