Finnish forward Matias Sointu has left Cardiff Devils after a short-term deal.

Sointu joined Devils in August and the Welsh club say he is returning to Finland in the hope of signing for a club in a "higher European league".

Devils head coach Andrew Lord said: "We always knew this was a temporary situation and that Matias would be looking at other leagues throughout Europe."

Sointu scored five goals in 21 games during his stint in Cardiff.
