Marco Sedlar will not be back this year with the Charlottetown Islanders.

General manager Grant Sonier told The Guardian on Monday the 18-year-old forward is remaining in Germany after going home for the Christmas break.

“We’ve elected to leave him at home,” Sonier said. “It was evident he was not going to play in the top two lines and we’ve concluded that he doesn’t fit the model to play in the bottom two lines.”

The 18-year-old was taken in the first round (33rd overall) of the 2013 import draft. The six-foot, 172-pound winger had two points in 11 games this season. He scored twice on Oct. 5 in Rouyn-Noranda in a 5-4 victory.

Each Canadian Hockey League team is allowed two import players. With the trade of 20-year-old Matej Beran to Sherbrooke, the Islanders now have no imports.

Charlottetown has two 20-year-old players (captain Jack Nevins and defenceman Troy Vance) with teams permitted to dress three.

The trade window closes Tuesday at 1 p.m. Atlantic.
