07:22 AM ET 09.11 | Sergei Bobrovsky certainly didn't suffer from a lack or high-end talent while the National Hockey League went dormant this past season. [Bobrovsky] spent the NHL lockout playing alongside Ilya Kovalchuk with SKA St. Petersburg and seriously considered following him home to Russia this summer. Even after a breakthrough campaign that saw him win the Vezina Trophy, the Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender called it a "very tough decision" to return to North America for another season. ... [Kovalchuk's decision] hit the hockey world like a shockwave -- even Bobrovsky, a former teammate who had pondered a similar move, was caught off guard. "To be honest, yeah (I was surprised)," he said. "But St. Petersburg, it's a great place to play hockey. It is one of the best, (most) beautiful cities in the world I think."

You Googled it and didn't mention it's in Licking County?

I've been through there Danny. (Thank you God.....I got out). It's sort of like W. Va without mountains and a tad more teeth.
