Report: NHL teams interested in P.J. Axelsson

Posted By DJ Bean On July 17, 2012 @ 2:39 pm In General | 1 Comment

According to Finnish sportswriter Matias Strozyk last week [1] (and a myriad of other reports since), old friend P.J. Axelsson has a couple of NHL [2] 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 [3], all with the Bruins.

Axelsson has one year remaining on his contract with Frölunda, but Strozyk tweeted last week that two NHL [4] teams are interested in the 37-year-old. Former Bruin and current TSN analyst Aaron Ward [5] tweeted Axelsson’s deal does not have an out clause [6] that would allow him return to the NHL [2] before the end of the deal.

The Bruins selected Axelsson in the seventh round (177th overall) of the 1995 draft. In 797 NHL [3] games, the Swedish forward had 103 goals and 184 assists for 287 points and 276 penalty minutes.
