Haapala will rejoin his Finnish club Tappara Tampere for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign, Matthew DeFranks of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Happala had been playing with AHL Springfield, where he notched eights points in 20 games; however, it seems the player and club feel it would better suit his development to return home. The winger has one year left on his entry-level contract and will aim to secure a spot on the 23-man roster ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.
