According to reports, unrestricted free agent forward Rob Schremp is headed to Sweden.

The former first-round draft pick will play for MODO of the Swedish Elite League this upcoming season.

The 25-year-old Schremp was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the first round (25th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. In September of 2009, he was claimed by the New York Islanders and spent nearly two seasons on Long Island before being placed on waivers. He was claimed by the Atlanta Thrashers this past February but the club, now the Winnipeg Jets, did not tender a qualifying offer.

In 114 career NHL games, the Fulton, NY, native has 20 goals, 34 assists and has a minus- 23 rating.
