In his first game action with his Vasteras in Sweden's second-tier of professional hockey, Brendan Mikkelson helped anchor his new club's second-pairing against a squad that, likewise due to the lockout, featured LA Kings star forward Anze Kopitar. Fellow NHLers Mikael Backlund (Calgary) and Patrik Berglund (St. Louis) led the way for Vasteras, as both scored in the late stages of the second period to help Lars Johasson, who stopped all 30 shots he faced, secure the shutout. Vasteras hosts Oskarshamn on Sunday.
