While he still had a season left on his deal with the Flyers...way to go IIHF...
Swedish defenseman Patrik Hersley isn't exactly one of the more known Swedes in North America. This season he has been part of the Philadelphia Flyers, but has only played in the AHL and the ECHL.
After two seasons in the AHL and the ECHL with not much to show for it, he has decided to head back to Sweden. Hersley had one year left on his contract with the Flyers, but will now instead play that year with the team where his career started, Malmö Redhawks in HockeyAllsvenskan.
Hersley is still just 22 years old. So maybe he will make the jump across the pond again one day, if he can get his game going at home.
