Kyle Turris has ended his stint with Karpat of Finland’s SM-liiga and has resumed skating in Ottawa, according to News 1130 Sports.

The Ottawa Senators acquired Turris from the Phoenix Coyotes last year in exchange for prospect David Rundblad and a second-round pick that the Coyotes subsequently traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets as part of a deal to get Antoine Vermette.

Turris got ample playing time in Ottawa and finished the 2011-12 campaign with 12 goals and 29 points in 55 games. That convinced the Senators to ink Turris to a five-year, $17.5 million contract extension.

Before the lockout began, Turris was projected to earn $1.6 million in the final season of his old deal.

Turris had seven goals and 19 points in 21 SM-liiga games with Karpat.
