NLA - The 31-year-old Swedish forward Martin Thörnberg has decided to leave the KHL after this season. As he says to the Swedish newspaper Expressen, a return to Sweden is not set in stone. There are offers from Switzerland, too.

Since 2011, the Swedish international has played in the KHL for Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, Lev Prague, and currently Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. Over this time he has scored 160 points (85 goals, 75 assists) in 242 games. "The only thing I know is that I'm not going to play in the KHL anymore next season," the 31-year-old says to the Expressen.

A return to his former team HV71 Jönköping, however, is not certain: "There have been some offers from Switzerland," he continues. "What one hears from the guys playing in Switzerland is that they really enjoy being down there. I'm pretty tired of travelling. There are those long flights [in the KHL] and I want to see my family more." (tme)
