Observations:

October, 2013 – Arnesson is at least one more year away from playing in North America, but when he does, the solid Swede could have an impact. He’s a strong defender with excellent puck moving skills, albeit with limited offensive upside.This year Arnesson will be back for a second season with Djurgardens in the Swedish league, where the Bruins hope that he can add some more offense to his game (Arnesson recorded just one point, an assist, in 31 games last season).

Fantasy Outlook: D

Despite the offensive shortcomings, Arnesson has the ability to shut down the opposition.  He shouldn’t be on anyone’s fantasy radar, but the Bruins hope he can help them when he arrives in the next year or two.
