After two years in Allsvenskan with IF Björklöven, Lucas Ekeståhl Jonsson took off to Finland to spend this past season playing for TPS of Liiga. With six goals and 20 assists in 58 games, the defenseman caught the attention of none other than the Boston Bruins — so much so that he was invited to their development camp in July. Now, Jonsson is hopeful for his future.

”[Development camp] was a good experience, but most of all very informative. It was fun to be there and get to know it,” he in an interview with Mattias Persson of HockeyNews.se. ”The goal has always been the NHL. It’s obviously fun that they are interested in me. I’ll make sure to make a good season, so let’s hope for the best.”
