Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson and Stars forward Loui Eriksson could all be heading home to the club that turned them into some of the NHL's top Swedish-born stars.

According to a report from Swedish publication SVT, Frölunda is in talks with the three players who could be set on joining the their top-level club in the Swedish Elite League during the ongoing NHL lockout. Deals have yet to be signed, but the signings would make sense: Lundqvist, Karlsson and Eriksson all have ties with Frölunda.

Lundqvist, last season's Vezina Trophy winner, played with the club from 1999 through his move to the Rangers in 2005. During his most recent SEL season in 2004-05, Lundqvist compiled a .936 save percentage and a 1.79 goals-against average in 44 regular season games.

Eriksson played with the club beginning in 2000. He played two SEL seasons -- 2003-04 and 2004-05 -- scoring 13 goals and 14 assists in 85 total regular season game. Karlsson joined Frölunda in 2007. He played 45 SEL games in 2008-09 before making the jump to the Senators the following year.
