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  (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 FrÃ¶lunda 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 FrÃ¶lunda, 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.
