Axelsson agrees to a three-year contract extension
The Boston Bruins have agreed to terms with left wing P. J. Axelsson on a three-year contract extension, it was announced today by Bruins General Manager Mike O'Connell. In keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not released.

Axelsson, 31, was drafted by the Bruins as their seventh pick, 177th overall, in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He turned professional with the Bruins in 1997-98 following four years in the Swedish Elite League with Frolunda Goteborg, where he had 36-21=57 totals and 54 penalty minutes in 105 career games.

The 6’1”, 184 lb. native of Kungalv, Sweden has never played a minor league game, playing all of the last eight seasons in Boston. He has scored ten-plus goals on three occasions, including in 2002-03 when he established career season-highs in all offensive categories with 17 goals and 19 assists for 36 points in 66 games. He has also represented Sweden in ten world tournaments (one World Junior, six World Championships, one World Cup and two Olympics) and won a Gold Medal with Team Sweden in the 2006 Olympic Games in Turin, Italy in February.

Axelsson, one of the league’s top defensive forwards, has scored ten goals and 18 assists for 28 points with four penalty minutes in 59 Bruins games this season. He is currently out of the lineup with a sprained knee suffered March 1 in Carolina. His career NHL totals to date are 74 goals and 127 assists for 201 points with 193 penalty minutes in 592 games.
