6th year, undrafted Swedish-born right wing Petter Emanuelsson(55) will head back home to the SHL signing for a pair of years with Lulea HF after being under contract with San Jose Sharks for the last three.

He was allowed to stay with Skelleftea, the team he skated juniors with for the first season of his new deal, joining then affiliate Worcester Sharks in 2014/2015 for his rookie campaign.

The 6′ 200 lbs. forward was with them for almost three full years but also did some time on reassignment all the way down to Division 1 skating as part of the Pitea HC club.

As a rookie playing North American hockey he suffered an injury only 6 AHL games in shelving him for the entire calendar.

Despite missing almost his entire first year, he did manage 4 goals in his short time in the minors, which was deemed worth another look and he was signed to a one-year extension.

An early cut from the parent club’s training camp, he reported to new farm club San Jose Barracuda but seemed to struggle some on the score sheet with only 11 goals and 12 assists in 58 contests but was an outstandingly accountable +17 on a squad that barely made it into the postseason.

The soon-to-be 25 year old was set to become a restricted free agent once again but has decided his time here is up and leaves to skate where it’s more familiar.

Never one to really put up big numbers, the versatile forward may still have yet to hit his stride.
