Oscar Fantenberg will play in Europe next season.

The defenseman, who most recently suited up for the Vancouver Canucks, signed a one-year contract with SKA Saint Petersburg, the KHL announced Tuesday.

Fantenberg became an unrestricted free agent after posting six points over 36 games for the Canucks in 2019-20. He signed with Vancouver for $850,000 in July 2019.

The 29-year-old also played for the Calgary Flames and the Los Angeles Kings during his two previous NHL campaigns. Fantenberg spent six full seasons overseas - mostly in his homeland of Sweden - before joining Los Angeles in May 2017.
