Friesen in talks with Swedish club
Ed Belfour may have some company in Leksand this year.
Dalarnas Tidningar is reporting that Jeff Friesen is in talks with the Swedish Tier II club about a contract for the upcoming season.
Formerly a servicable offensive player who had three 60-point seasons in the late '90s, Friesen has had stone hands since the lockout, scoring just 10 goals and 23 points in 123 games over the past two seasons.
Picked 11th overall back in 1994, he was a junior scoring star with the Regina Pats, and will turn 31 tomorrow.
That's awfully young to be closing the book on the NHL.
