While that didn't pan out, one thing was clear: Marty Turco didn't want to hang up the waffle board quite yet. It appears Turco has found some work, albeit in the short term and overseas.
Sports writer Matias Strozyk (@tomppaaax on Twitter) reports that Turco's getting his wings with EC Red Bull Salzburg in Austria:
EC Salzburg confirm they have signed G Marty Turco to a short-time contract. Turco is only expected to play in the European Trophy Finals / Red Bulls Salute, played in Austria between December 16th and 18th.
Turco was 11-11-3 with a 3.02 GAA and a .897 save percentage last season with the Chicago Blackhawks. No word what role he'll play for Salzburg; but if he's a backup keeper, we'd remind fans to make sure they bring some small bills for bench wagering purposes.
