Collberg agreed to a two-year contract with Rogle BK of the Swedish Hockey League. The return home for Collberg comes after a disappointing two-year stint in the AHL where he failed to reach the 20-point mark in either season. A highly touted prospect before being selected 33rd overall in the 2012 NHL Draft, the winger will likely have to put up some extremely impressive numbers if he ever hopes to get another shot at an NHL career.
Collberg was placed on unconditional waivers by New York on Friday. Collberg saw action in just 42 games for AHL Bridgeport Sound this year. In those contests, the winger tallied a mere three goal and seven assists. His release could mark the end of what was expected to be a solid NHL career after being selected in the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft. The 22-year-old was acquired by the Islanders in exchange for Thomas Vanek, a trade that continues to look worse with each passing NHL season.
Sebastian Collberg was sent down to Bridgeport of the AHL on Monday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
