Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference announced on Twitter Wednesday night that he will go overseas to play for HC Ceske Budejovice of the Czech Extraliga on Oct. 7 if a new collective bargaining agreement between players and the owners is not reached. Ference played in the Extraliga during the 2004-05 season, which was cancelled due to a lockout that spanned the season.
Tweeted Ference: "Going back to my old team, Ceske Budejovice, on Oct 7 barring any CBA. I'll buy any Bostonian a Budvar [Budweiser] if I see you there."
Ference would become the second Bruin to join the Extraliga for the lockout. Bruins center David Krejci is reportedly set to leave this weekend to play for HC Pardubice. Dennis Seidenberg may also head to Germany to play for Adler Mannheim of the Deutsche Eishockey Liga.
The owners locked the players out over the weekend after the NHL's collective bargaining agreement expired. The NHL announced the cancellation of all preseason games on Wednesday.
