Linus Arnesson (born September 21, 1994) is a Swedish professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing with Örebro HK in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). Arnesson was selected by the Boston Bruins in the 2nd round (60th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Arnesson played in his native Sweden as a youth within Djurgårdens IF organization.[1] On June 1, 2014, Arnesson was signed by the Boston Bruins to a three-year entry-level contract.[2]

After the conclusion of the 2014–15 SHL season, Arnesson made his way over to America to join the Bruins AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins.

Arnesson played two full seasons in the American Hockey League with Providence, however was unable to make an impact within the Bruins prospect ranks. At the conclusion of his entry-level deal, Arnesson as an impending restricted free agent, opted to return to continue his career in Sweden, in agreeing to an optional three-year deal with Örebro HK on June 1, 2017.[3]
