Sabres' Enroth signs with team in Sweden

Thomas Vanek is done playing in Europe, and Jhonas Enroth is finally starting.

The Sabres' backup goaltender has signed with Almtuna in Sweden. His contract runs through Jan. 6, but likely has a termination clause should the lockout end.

"They were interested and needed a keeper," Enroth said according to a translation of a team news release. "It suited me fine."

Including Vanek, who is heading back from Austria, the Sabres have had seven players sign overseas: Christian Ehrhoff and Alexander Sulzer (Germany), Tyler Ennis and Tyler Myers (Switzerland), Andrej Sekera (Slovakia) and Enroth.
