The Bruins were said to be one of the finalists to land the services of the 40-year-old free agent, who has 426 goals and 682 assists in 1,178 games over 17 NHL  seasons, all with Ottawa. He is the franchise’s regular-season and playoff record-holder for games, goals, assists and points.
The Swedish forward was chosen by the Sens in the sixth round of the 1994 NHL  draft and won the Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookie in 1995-96. He has played in six All-Star Games, most recently in 2012.
