Maybe you're thinking about when he played in the SEL?

According to Wikipedia SM-Iiiga is the top European hockey league...
I knew he was demoted at some point....nice to hear he's in the top tier.

BTW, according to DC of the Times, Fasth was offered a 2-way last year and rejected it. Can understand that he wouldn't want to go to the AHL if he doesn't make the big club, but why not send these guys back to their homeland if they don't make it instead of Norfolk? Granted, they wouldn't get the NHL experience, but you'll never know if you can't get them over here to begin with.
