News: Lauridsen signed a one-year contract Wednesday with Frolunda of the Swedish Hockey League.
Impact: The 26-year-old Lauridsen had appeared in 16 games with the Flyers across the last three seasons, including one in 2014-15, but it became clear that the unrestricted free agent wasn't valued highly in the organization due to the influx of well-regarded defensive prospects coming up the pipeline. As a result, the 6-foot-6 rearguard elected to head over to Europe, where he'll attempt to improve his stock and return to North America next summer.
