NHL Lockout 2012: Alex Steen, Tobias Enstrom Reportedly Set To Join Modo

St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen will be one of the first players to join a Swedish Elite League club during the NHL lockout, according to a report from Swedish publication Expressen.

According to the report, Steen has agreed to terms with Modo and will be ready to join the club for their game against Rögle on Saturday. The club has not officially announced the deal. Steen played with Modo in his final European season prior to joining the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2005. He played 50 games with Modo in 2004-05, scoring nine goals and eight assists. He played two prior SEL seasons with Frolunda.

Expressen also reports that Winnipeg Jets defenseman Tobias Enstrom is set to sign a deal with Modo as well. The deal still hinges on insurance issues, according to the report. Enstrom was raised in the Modo system, playing junior hockey with the club and parts of five SEL seasons. Most recently, he scored seven goals and 21 assists in 55 games with Modo during the 2006-07 season. He jumped to join the Atlanta Thrashers organization the following season.
