Hockey Expressen has a short interview with Bruins Prospect Linus Arnesson, where he says that - as his season with Djurgården is over - he is coming to America to play with the Providence Bruins.

Linus was our #14 Top 25 under 25 prospect this year:

I don't think he'll make the Boston Bruins this year, but if he can continue to impress we'll see him in Black and Gold soon enough.

And the year before, he was 19th:

By now it's no secret that Arnesson is a defense-first kind of blue-liner, and that his puck moving skills are seen as a bit of a weakness. His point totals listed above, as well as a 0-0-0 at the 2013 World Juniors, are evidence of that.

(h/t to PHT for noticing this)

Anyhow, looks like he's going to Providence. What do y'all think?
