June 2017 – Linus Arnesson's career with the Boston Bruins organization may have come to a disappointing end. Back in 2013 the Bruins had high hope for the smooth skating Swede, but he was never able to put it all together in North America. Arnesson played just 79 games over three season with the Providence Bruins, getting knocked out of the lineup with several long lasting injuries and overall inconsistent play. Linus scored only 19 career points in Providence and finishes minus four during his brief stint with the club. Boston is however expected to extend a qualifying offer to Arnesson and hasn't given up on the young defender. While Sweeney has stated he thinks that Arnesson still has a lot of potential, he will return to Sweden for now to try to re-find his game. Mike Drover
