Playing career[edit]

Wandell was drafted whilst with the Youth team of Södertälje SK in the 5th round, 146th overall, by the Dallas Stars in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. He made his debut in Sweden's top-flight SHL during the 2005-06 season. The 2006-07 campaign saw Wandell spent time with Ässät of the Finnish Liiga, before heading to North America, where he played in 53 games for AHL’s Iowa Stars in 2007-08.

In 2008–09, he made his NHL debut with the Dallas Stars, but mostly played for Timrå IK of the SHL.[1] He also recorded his first career National Hockey League goal with the Stars on December 12, 2008, in only his second NHL game, by scoring in a 3-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.[2]

After six seasons within the Dallas Stars organization, Wandell left to sign a two-year contract in Russia with HC Spartak Moscow of the Kontinental Hockey League on May 3, 2013.[3] In 2014-15, he split time between Avangard Omsk and Admiral Vladivostok.

Prior to the 2015-16 season, Wandell was traded by Admiral Vladivostok, in one of the largest trades in KHL history, to Amur Khabarovsk on June 15, 2015.[4] He made 55 appearances for Amur, tallying four goals and twelve assists. He left the club after the 2015-16 season and signed a two-year deal with Örebro HK of the Swedish Hockey League in May 2016.[5]
