With the Swedish Elite League saying no to locked-out NHLers, the Swedish second division continues to add star power.
According to HockeyExpressen, the pair are still sorting out insurance issues.
Murray played for Djugarden’s junior team waaaay back in 1996-97 before jumping overseas to play in the Eastern Junior Hockey League, then spending four years at Cornell University.
Hornqvist represented Djugardens at both the junior and senior levels, including the 2006-07 season where he led the team in goals (23) as a 19-year-old.
With St. Louis’ Patrik Berglund (see here) and Los Angeles’ Anze Kopitar (see here) already committed to the Swedish second division, the additions of Murray and Hornqvist could make the Allsvenskan a compelling league this year.
Well, depending on your standards for “compelling.” Mine are pretty low right now.
