Former San Jose Sharks forward Marcus Sorensen won't be returning to the Bay Area for the 2021-22 season.

The 29-year-old will instead play for Djugardens IF of the Swedish Hockey League, according to NBC Sports' Dalton Johnson.

Sorensen confirmed his departure on Twitter Saturday morning.

Sorensen put up 64 points across 226 games with the Sharks over five seasons. He was limited to 29 contests during the 2020-21 campaign, his lowest amount since his rookie year.

The Ottawa Senators drafted Sorensen in 2010, but he opted to play in the Djugardens organization for several years. Sorensen's rights with the Senators ultimately expired, and he signed an entry-level contract with San Jose in 2016. He just finished a two-year deal with an average annual value of $1.5 million.

Sorensen represented Sweden at the 2021 IIHF World Championship, registering four points in seven games.
