Report: Joakim Andersson to leave NHL to play in SHL with Orebro HK
Reports have surfaced that Joakim Andersson will return to Sweden after the postseason has concluded. Despite the report being in Swedish, Google did the work for us. Here's a *rough* translation of the article:
Detroit is 2-0 in games in the first round of the playoffs against Tampa Bay. The season thus looks to an end relatively early for Henrik Zetterberg and the rest of the Red Wings.
Can you believe Expressen choose one of the team's Swedes, Joakim Andersson, to leave the club after this season. Joakim Andersson sits on a contract basis and according to the newspaper, 27-year-old agreed with Orebro.
Joakim Andersson has previously represented Frolunda in SHL, but also Boras during a loan spell in Hockeyallsvenskan. He was drafted by the 2007 season in the third round by Detroit and took the leap over to North America 2010/2011 season.
This year he has alternated games with the Red Wings of the NHL and the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL. Andersson has on his 31 NHL appearances this year recorded four points. According to Expressen also showed his former club Frolunda some interest here.
