B's Prospect Linus Arnesson Inks a Pro Deal

Bruce Bennett

After some poor speculation on my part, B's prospect Linus Arnesson announced he's signed a deal with the Boston Bruins.

Arnesson, the 60th overall pick in the 2013 draft will be 20 next season. He's been in the Djurgården system for years, the last two spent at the senior level in Allsvenskan, the second tier of Swedish hockey. He posted a 1-5-6 line in 44 games last year and won a silver medal playing for Sweden in the World Junior Championship.

As his numbers would suggest, he's not a particularly offensive-minded d man, but can help to create. He'll compete for playing time in Providence next year and should be a nice compliment to players like David Warsofsky and Joe Morrow.

UPDATE:

Arnesson's contract is a three year deal with a $817,500 cap hit ($925,000 AAV).
