Bruins select Swedish defenseman, eye Lecavalier

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins selected Swedish defenseman Linus Arnesson with the 60th pick of yesterday’s NHL Draft.

The Bruins didn’t have a first-round selection, so Arnesson — 18 and listed at 6 feet 2 inches and 190 pounds — was their first addition of the day. He played for Djurgarden in Stockholm and was projected as a third- or fourth-round pick.

The Bruins, the Eastern Conference champions, surrendered their first-round pick in a conditional deal for forward Jaromir Jagr. The choice went from a second- to a first-round pick because Boston reached the Eastern Conference finals.

The Bruins still had five selections to make.

Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli met with reporters after the first selection. Hit with the news that right wing Nathan Horton was heading to free agency, Chiarelli announced that the team met with forward Vincent Lacavalier, recently bought out by Tampa Bay.

“We had a good meeting,” Chiarelli said.
