P.J. Axelsson News
First Prev Page 1 of 5 Last Next

Anders Per-Johan Axelsson (born February 26, 1975, in Kungälv, Sweden), commonly abbreviated to P. J. Axelsson, is a professional Swedish ice hockey player with the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League. His nickname in Sweden is "Pebben". He is the longest-tenured Bruin, having been with the team since 1997.

Axelsson plays as a left winger. Although he hasn't gained the reputation of a premier goal scorer, Axelsson's gritty, unrelenting attitude as a solid, defensive-minded forward, and his ability to make smart plays on the ice, has made him a fan favourite of the Boston Bruins, Frölunda HC, and the Swedish national team, Tre Kronor.

Axelsson played four seasons for his hometown team, Frölunda HC, in the Swedish Elitserien before being drafted 177th overall in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins.
