Jeff Corey: Found.

Jeff Corey popped up in Sweden today, not coincidentally the same day that the Reign suspended their leading scorer. Corey is joining ÖHC, a team based in Brunflo, Sweden that competes in Division 1 (which, of course, is the third-highest league of competition in Sweden).

Corey’s exodus comes as no surprise; suspending him was the final step that allows the Reign to retain his ECHL rights if Corey chooses to play North American hockey again this season.

According to the website (suitable for work), ÖHC is in second place in their division. The Swedish hockey leagues use a relegation system that would allow ÖHC to move up to the second-tier league HockeyAllsvenskan if it finishes atop of Division 1 at the end of the season.

    This makes 2 players bail out to Europe this year. I can’t fault the guys for chasing $, but I have a beef with the way they did it. The overseas contracts don’t happen overnight. Why did you waste OUR time, take up a spot on our roster, and do this stuff behind our backs? If you wanted to play over there that bad, then just stay there.
    I wonder if David Walker is doing the same thing…he did start the year over there. It sure seems like his heart isn’t here.

    There goes another one. A good player too. All the players should be signing a contract that they have to play with their respective teams for a full season unless they get traded, injured or quit. It messes everything up.

    I dont blame them but without consulting the team and doing it in the middle of the season, its just so unprofessional. These things are done in the offseason. Its a slap to the face to the team and the fans. They should take note from Hogeboom and Lenes, who did their team searching in the offseason.

    How is Corey leaving unprofessional? Hockey may be a sport but it’s also a job. What’s wrong with leaving for a better opportunity? What if the team decided they didn’t want Corey and cut him instead? Would that be fair to Corey? This is business.
