Puide will thus play in Sweden's third-tier league, HockeyEttan. It will be his first season in Sweden, as Puide spent most of his junior years and his first pro years in Switzerland.

Even though he was under contract with Lausanne HC last season, he did not play in a single game for them. He was loaned to HCV Martigny and subsequently to EHC Winterthur for the season. In 29 games for Winterthur, he recorded five goals and five assists.
