Another Ranger is heading overseas. This time around, it’s Derek Stepan, who will be heading to Finland to play with Kalpa Kuopio of SM-Liga.

Off to play in Finland! #kalpa

Notable NHLers on Kalpa are Sami Kapanen and Craig Smith (Nashville).

Update 3:00pm:  Thanks to agentsmith for pointing this out: Smith and Stepan were teammates at Wisconsin.
