Sheffield Steelers forward Jay Latulippe has left after less than a year to rejoin Kristianstads IK.
The 32-year-old previously worked under Steelers coach Gerard Adams at Cardiff Devils, but has struggled to reproduce the form he showed in South Wales.
And the American has now opted to return to the third tier in Sweden.
"I've enjoyed it here but was given an opportunity to further my career in Sweden and at my age I had to jump at it. Gerard felt the same way," he said.
Latulippe played 29 games for the Steelers, scoring six goals.
