Goaltender Henrik Karlsson is reportedly on his way back to his homeland in Sweden.

As per a report (translated through Google) from the SVT Sport, the 29-year-old Karlsson has signed a one-year contract with SkellefteƄ AIK, the Swedish champions.

Karlsson joined the Calgary Flames organization from Europe, beginning in the 2010-11 season. He spent parts of two years in Calgary, with an assignment to Abbotsford in the American Hockey League as well.

The Flames traded Karlsson to the Chicago Blackhawks in January, but he spent the majority of the season in Rockford of the AHL.

He did spend some time with Chicago this year, including for the playoffs.
