Former NHL winger Linus Omark left North America in 2014 to play in Europe after refusing to report to the Buffalo Sabres' AHL team, the Rochester Americans. Since then, he played for the Lulea HF in Sweden, the Helsinki Jokerit and the Ufa Salavat Yulayev, in the KHL.
Even though some would believe these teams are much less pretigious than the NHL, Omark has shown he is still able to handle the puck properly. KHL insider Aivis Kalnins retweeted a video of the 30-year-old showing amazing moves in a summer tournament:
The forward was selected 97th overall by the Edmonton Oilers, in the fourth round of the 2007 NHL draft. He only played 79 games with the Oilers and the Buffalo Sabres, in which he recorded eight goals and 24 assists for 32 points.
