Toby Enstrom is heading back to his homeland for another chance to play during the NHL lockout.

Enstrom, the smooth-skating Winnipeg Jets defenceman who had six goals and 33 points in 62 games last season, cut short his stint with Salzburg EC Red Bull in Austria but is poised to sign to play with the Orebro Vipers, a team in Sweden’s second division.

Enstrom’s new teammates will include his younger brother Thomas, a 23-year-old right-winger who has two goals in 16 games this season.

Toronto Maple Leafs blue-liner Carl Gunnarsson, who was born in Orebro, signed with the Vipers earlier this month.
