According to a release from the Boston Bruins Sunday morning, prospect Linus Arnesson has suffered an upper-body injury, and will miss all of rookie camp. Arnesson is coming off shoulder surgery in the spring.
The 21-year old is a former second-round pick of the Bruins from 2013, and played all of last season with the Providence team, scoring five points in 48 games. The shutdown defensive prospect has turned in some stellar performances, but has never been able to develop much of an offensive game to help him get to the next level.
Still young, Arnesson projects as a bottom pairing NHL blueliner one day, capable of helping against a tough forecheck and contributing on the penalty kill. Limited already in his short career by injury, we’ll see how long it takes him to get back to full strength after this latest upper body problem.
