Technically sound defensive defenseman. Arnesson won’t fill the scoresheet but is capable of playing significant minutes and can help in leagues that count plus/minus.

June 2021 – Arnesson has signed a one-year contract with Djurgårdens IF in the SHL. The 2021-2022 campaign will mark his fifth consecutive year playing in Sweden. Boston only holds his NHL rights until next offseason, so at this time a reunion does not appear to be in the cards between the Bruins and the stay-at-home defenseman. He still may attempt to earn an NHL job elsewhere once he becomes a free agent. Chris Mazza
March 2020 – Arnesson’s calling card is his strong defensive play. He has good lateral mobility which allows him to hold the zone offensively and defend well off the rush. At 25 years old, he has played 79 total AHL games in Providence with minimal offensive production. He has spent the majority of his hockey career in Sweden, including the last three years in the SHL. He doesn’t hold much fantasy value offensively, but can contribute with ice time, plus/minus and blocked shots if he were to return to North America. The Bruins hold Arnesson’s NHL rights until the 2022 off-season. Chris Mazza
