Haas agreed to terms on a five-year deal with Swiss club EHC Biel-Bienne on Thursday.
Haas returns to Biel-Bienne, a team with which he came up through the youth ranks and previously served as an assistant captain for three seasons from 2014-17. In two years with Edmonton, the 29-year-old center appeared in 92 games in which he registered seven goals, six assists and 89 hits while averaging 10:19 of ice time. Given his age and the length of his contract, this likely will mark the end of Haas' time in the NHL.
Haas (foot) will return to the lineup for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Canucks, Bob Stauffer of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Haas will make his first appearance since May 1, skating with James Neal on a fourth line that's likely to have a rotating cast of options on the other wing, as Edmonton's going with 11 forwards and seven defensemen. The veteran center will likely fill a defense-first fourth-line role if he cracks the lineup in the playoffs, and Saturday's game will serve as an opportunity to knock off the rust prior to the postseason.
Haas (foot) is not in the lineup Wednesday against Montreal.
Haas will miss his sixth straight game with the foot issue, and with just two regular-season games left after Wednesday, it's unclear if he'll return prior to the playoffs.

Haas (foot) won't play Saturday against the Canucks but should be ready by the playoffs, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
The cause of Haas' injury was previously unknown, but it was revealed that he was injured by taking a shot to the foot.

Haas will miss a second straight game with the injury. Kyle Turris is in the lineup in a bottom-six role to fill the void.
Haas will not be in the lineup against Vancouver on Monday after sustaining an undisclosed injury, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.
Given Haas hasn't scored a point since March 17 versus Calgary, a run of 16 games without a point, few fantasy players will notice the center's absence. Even once given the green light to play, he could still find himself watching from the press box given the veteran depth on the club.
Haas is in an 11-game point drought.
Haas has just seven shots on net, 10 hits and a minus-5 rating in that span. The Swiss center isn't a big source of offense, but he keeps a regular spot in the lineup thanks to his steady defense. He has three points, 30 hits and a minus-5 rating through 28 appearances overall.
Haas recorded an assist in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Flames.
Haas set up Zack Kassian on the Oilers' seventh goal. The 29-year-old Haas has two goals and a helper through 17 games this year. Expect the Swiss center to remain in a bottom-six role, although he could take on more ice time while Jujhar Khaira (upper body) is out.
Haas scored a goal on two shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Friday's 6-2 win over the Senators.

Haas cleaned up a rebound near the crease at 17:55 of the second period. His tally stood as the game-winner Friday. It was the Swiss center's first point in four appearances this year. Haas is expected to bring penalty-killing skill and a little depth scoring to the Oilers' bottom six. He'll have to fend off challenges from Devin Shore and Kyle Turris to stay in the lineup.
Haas (undisclosed) blocked three shots and skated 10:15 in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Jets.
Haas returned from a five-game absence to center the Oilers' fourth line between Kyle Turris and Alex Chiasson. The 29-year-old Haas was second among Oilers skaters with 4:10 of shorthanded ice time, providing a boost to their penalty-killing ranks. He's still looking for his first point, but he has seven blocked shots and a minus-2 rating in three games. There's little reason for fantasy managers to have interest in the Swiss center.
The Oilers activated Haas (undisclosed) off injured reserve Wednesday.
Haas has missed the past five games with the undisclosed injury, but as evidenced by this news, he'll have an opportunity to return to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Jets. The 29-year-old has only suited up in two games this season, averaging 14:23 of ice time and going pointless over that span.
Haas (undisclosed) was designated for injured reserve Monday.

Haas (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's game versus the Flames, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Haas had been in the lineup for the last two games, but his mystery injury will cost him time. The Swiss center usually works in the bottom six -- Jujhar Khaira reenters the lineup in a similar role, although the Oilers are deploying seven defensemen and 11 forwards for Saturday's contest. Haas will try to be ready for Monday's game in Ottawa.
Haas (undisclosed) didn't skate Friday and may not play Saturday against the Flames, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

Haas was lifted from the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.

Haas (COVID-19) resumed skating Friday.
Haas tested positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 21 and remains without a timetable for his return to game action, but he's clearly making progress in his recovery.

Per Gregor, James Neal (undisclosed) could return to the Oilers next week, but Haas will be out longer than that.

The Swiss center could eventually work his way into a fourth-line role which will be handled for now by Jujhar Khaira.
Haas (COVID-19) has yet to begin skating and could miss the start of the season, Reid Wilkins of 630 CHED reports.
Haas put together a solid rookie campaign last year, registering five goals on 54 shots, five assists and 58 hits while averaging just 9:42 of ice time. The Swiss center should push for a bottom-six role once fully fit but could end up on the taxi squad if his absence carries too far into the season.
