Jakub Voracek seems to be having a good time over in Europe so far during this NHL lockout. The Flyers' forward, set to have a breakout campaign on a line with Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell whenever this work stoppage ends, has played three games for HC Lev Praha in the KHL and has scored a goal and two assists in those games.

Today's performance against Yugra was particularly impressive: A 4-0 win in which Voracek assisted on a hat trick goal by former Rangers/Penguins forward Erik Christensen. Voracek wound up playing 15:32 total in the game, mostly on a second line with Christensen and ex-Buffalo Sabre Jiri Novotny. He took a tripping penalty 3:49 into the first period of the game.

Yugra's a pretty terrible team -- 1-6 in their seven games so far -- and Lev currently sits at the top of the KHL's Western Conference with a 6-2-1 record through nine games.

HC Lev Praha replaced HC Lev Poprad, a Czech-based KHL club that disbanded after their lone season in the league last year. Lev are the only KHL team that calls the Czech Republic home, playing games at Tipsport Arena in Prague.
