|(9/7/16) Ortio agreed to terms Wednesday on a one-year deal with Skelleftea AIK of the Swedish Hockey, Roger Millions of Sportsnet Calgary reports.|
Ortio made 22 appearances for the Flames last season but was not given a qualifying offer after spending a portion of the year with AHL Stockton. The goaltender was unimpressive in either league, as he went 7-9-5 in the majors and 9-9-0 in the minors. In both cases, the 25-year-old posted a GAA above 2.75, further decreasing his fantasy value. Even if he can manage a return to the NHL, and at this point that seems like a long shot, owners may want to wait to see some positive results before taking a flyer on Ortio.
