Auf Wiedersehen, Petteri Lindbohm...

The Finnish defense prospect has opted to sign with Swiss club Lausanne for next season, declining the Blues' qualifying offer.

Hmmm... I'm sure San Antonio is a very nice place and all, but... $75K to play in Texas, or maybe 5-10 times that much to play in Switzerland.

Seems like a no-brainer to me.

The Blues did not seem to have any long-term plans for him, and he was providing diminishing returns for them since a somewhat auspicious debut in 2014-15. His last NHL appearance was April 4, 2017 vs. Winnipeg, and he played in only 23 games last year for the Chicago Wolves, being sidelined mid-season with an injury.
