Euro Curve takes a daily look at the international hockey scene.

- Former Phoenix Coyotes Left Winger Patrick Fischer has signed with SKA St. Petersburg of the Russian Super League. Fischer had 4 goals and 6 assists in 27 games for the Coyotes last season. The 32-year-old product of Zug, Switzerland has 400 + career points in 14 seasons split between HC Davos and EV Zug of the Swiss League.

- Hockej.cz reports that Eisbaron Berlin ( Berlin Polar Bears) have expressed interest in Former New Jersey Devils Defenseman Dan McGillis. *** Various sources are now reporting that Vancouver Canucks GM Dave Nonis has invited McGillis to training camp on a try-out basis, possibly in an attempt to fill a hole on the depth chart caused by the injury to Veteran blueliner Sami Salo.

- An interesting article on St.Louis Blues 2004 draft pick Viktor Alexandrov (3/83), who currently plays for Metallurg Novokusnetsk of the Russian Super League.

- Remember Former New Jersey Devils Draft Pick and Israeli National Max Birbraer? He currently plays for the Cardiff Devils of the Elite Ice Hockey League (Britain).
