Tim Wallace is on his way to the Swedish Hockey League.

Wallace, who spent last season with the Carolina Hurricanes, has signed with SHL outfit Orebro, the club announced on Tuesday.

After a standout career at Notre Dame, Wallace caught on with the Pens organization in 2006 and made his NHL debut with Pittsburgh during the 2008-09 season.

From there, he moved to the Islanders, then the Lightning, before signing a one-year, $700,000 deal with the ‘Canes last summer.

Wallace, 29, had his best stretch with the Bolts in 2011-12. After being picked up off waivers in February, he racked up 3G-5A-8-PTS in 18 games, emerging as a nice bottom-six contributor down the stretch.

That said, he never really found a fit in Carolina last season, appearing in 28 games while recording just two points.
