Tobias Enstrom is going back to Sweden.

According to the Winnipeg Sun, the Jets defenseman will be moving on from his short stint with EC Red Bull in Austria to play in the Swedish second division with the Orebro Vipers.

In just five games with Red Bull, Enstrom has but one goal and no assists. His departure from Salzburg is curious as that team has a few locked out players on their roster. Boston’s Johnny Boychuk and New Jersey’s David Clarkson are there and Columbus’ Derick Brassard recently signed there.

In Orebro, he’ll be playing with his brother, Thomas, as well as Maple Leafs defenseman Carl Gunnarsson. You can go home again after all, especially when you’re locked out of playing in the NHL.
