Another bites the dust on Causeway Street, after 11 years with the black & gold, PJ Axelsson has bit adieu to Boston. Axelsson signed a four year contract with the Frölunda Hockey Club.
Axelsson, who played for Frölunda during the lock out, was quoted as saying, “I’ve always wanted to come back here.” Good luck, bro. Thanks to The Hockey Blog Adventure for the scoop.
While one door closes, an one opens. Not too long after Aaron Ward was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, rumors started to pop up about free agent, Derek Morris, signing with the Bruins and low and behold it happened.
Morris, who finished the season in New York after being traded by the Coyotes, has played 793 games, scored 76 goals and has 264 assists. Morris started off his career in Calgary, where he spent five years there and during that time period, played with Chuck Kobasew, Andrew Ference, Marc Savard & Steve Begin.
