Another two players left HK Acroni Jesenice

It was announced last week already - Patrik Bergström left HK Acroni Jesenice (SLO;EBEL) to continue this season in Sparta Sarpsborg, Norway. No explanation about this (un)expected departure came from Slovenian side. However, HK Acroni Jesenice confirmed that Henrik Petre also won't be a member of team during next months.
