Seguin to play in Switzerland

With the NHL lockout having pushed back the start of its season, Bruins forward Tyler Seguin signed with EHC Biel in Switzerland and is expected to report on Saturday and be ready to play as early as next week, the team announced on its website. According to the announcement, Seguin's initial commitment will run through Dec. 31. (Also in the announcement, in offering a summary of Seguin's career, there is mention of the "amusing random episode" that he was disciplined by the team for sleeping through meetings.)

The 20-year-old led the Bruins last season with 29 goals and 67 points in 81 games.

Hernandez among 3 missing Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Aaron Hernandez was not spotted at practice for a second straight day on Thursday as the Patriots practiced in full pads on the grass training fields outside Gillette Stadium.

Winslow: Playing with pain 'doesn't matter'

FOXBORO -- New Patriots tight end Kellen Winslow spoke for the first time Thursday since agreeing to terms on Tuesday and joining the team in Wednesday's practice. The star tight end was a first-round draft pick of the Browns in 2004, chosen sixth overall out of Miami.

But since, Winslow, 29, has battled chronic knee and leg injuries. Two games into his rookie season, he broke his right fibula and was expected to return in time for the season opener in 2005. But in May of that year, he was involved in a motorcycle accident and was thrown from the bike, tearing his right ACL. His first breakout season came in 2007, when he had 82 catches for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns.

Since 2006, Winslow has played all 16 games in five of his last six seasons, though he admitted Thursday to playing with a great deal of pain in the right knee.  

"Yeah, but it doesn't matter," Winslow said when asked if he's playing in pain. "I think...

Reports: Celtics to sign Darko Milicic

Are the Celtics interested in signing free agent center Darko Milicic? That's the gist of a report from Novostri.rs and helpfully translated and passed along via Sportando. Per the report, the erstwhile Darko turned down a three-year, $6 million deal from Real Madrid to stay in the NBA. 

Darko was waived via the amnesty clause by the Timberwolves this summer, leaving the Wolves on the hook for his $5.2 million salary this season. Milicic passed through waivers without a claim, making him a free agent and meaning the Celtics could sign him for the veteran minimum. 

The C's have 13 players under guaranteed contract, leaving two roster spots open, and they have a notable lack of depth at the center position behind Kevin Garnett. Veteran free agent Jason Collins was brought in from Atlanta and Chris Wilcox also can fill the role.
