The NHL is set to open next season with two games in Europe, a source has told The Canadian Press.

The 2008-'09 season will begin with the Ottawa Senators playing the Pittsburgh Penguins twice in Stockholm and New York Rangers facing the Tampa Bay Lightning in two games in Prague.

Those games will be played before the NHL season begins in North America, just as Los Angeles and Anaheim did this season in London.

All four teams are expected to play pre-season games in Europe as well.
