Per reports from Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Emil Johanssen has traveled to North America to sign a deal with Boston and likely finish out the season with Providence. He told them, per google translate,
“I came here yesterday and must first and foremost see how everything works. Then I'll see if it will play even now, I'll make my first training today”
Emil Johnassen was a 7th round pick in 2014. As a defenseman, he’s scored 28 points in 134 games in the Swedish Elite League with HV71 and Djurgårdens IF the last 3 seasons.
