On October 9, an anonymously-sourced report by hockeysverige.se revealed that Axel Jonsson-Fjallby had decided to return home after playing just two games in Hershey. Both the Capitals and Bears pushed back on the Swedish report, but 13 games later, AJF is indeed leaving.
The Capitals made the news official in a late afternoon PR release, citing the organization was loaning the 2016 fifth-round pick to the SHL team, Djurgardens IF. The loan is necessary because the Capitals signed Jonsson-Fjallby to a three-year, entry-level contract in May. AJF will remain in team control moving forward.
In total, AJF appeared in 15 games for the Bears tallying three points (2g, 1a).
