Thomas Vanek has completed his stint with Austria's Graz EC.
Vanek had five goals and 10 assists in 11 contests. "There's good, fast hockey played here in Austria," Vanek wrote. "My decision to come to play here was the right one. I really don't know how things are going to unfold in the next weeks. First of all, I'm on my way back home to Buffalo and my family now. I missed Ashley and the kids a lot. I get asked if I'll return after the international break all the time. That may well be, but certainly not right after the break. I want to wait how the negotiations between league and PA are going. It seems as if things are going forward a bit."
