Calgary Flames forward Michael Cammalleri is reportedly close to signing a deal what would see him play hockey overseas during the NHL lockout.

According to TVA Sports, Cammalleri is on the verge of an agreement with Geneve-Servette HC in Switzerland.

With the NHL lockout reaching the 95th day on Wednesday and no resolution in sight, Cammalleri would join Tyler Seguin, Jason Spezza, Patrice Bergeron, John Tavares, Matt Duchene and Brooks Laich in the Swiss League.

The lockout has kept more than 700 players away from their NHL teams and over 100 players have left for Europe.
