Today, Flyers forward Patrick Thoreson has announced he is returning to Europe for next season. He will likely end up in Switzerland or Sweden. Before signing with the Oilers he played for Djurgarden and will likely return to play there. He will definitely be in the NHL in two years. He works his hardest on every shift and plays solid defense. If he can learn to bury his opportunities he will be a regular in any top 9 in the NHL. Best of luck to him, hopefully he fine tunes his game and returns to the Flyers for the 09-10 Season.
