According to Finnish sportswriter Matias Strozyk last week (and a myriad of other reports since), old friend P.J. Axelsson has a couple of NHL teams interested in his services. Axelsson, who is currently playing for Frölunda HC of the Elitserien league in Sweden, played 11 seasons in the NHL, all with the Bruins.

Axelsson has one year remaining on his contract with Frölunda, but Strozyk tweeted last week that two NHL teams are interested in the 37-year-old. Former Bruin and current TSN analyst Aaron Ward tweeted Axelsson’s deal does not have an out clause that would allow him return to the NHL before the end of the deal.

The Bruins selected Axelsson in the seventh round (177th overall) of the 1995 draft. In 797 NHL games, the Swedish forward had 103 goals and 184 assists for 287 points and 276 penalty minutes.
