“I’m excited about Larsson,” said Belleville Sens General Manager Ryan Bowness. “I’ve seen him play quite a bit, both in Anaheim and San Diego the last couple of years. He’s just another good all-around guy, he’s good in all aspects of the game, and he’s experienced in terms of his NHL minutes. He’s excited to come to Belleville and hopefully rediscover what got him chosen as a first-round draft pick, and he can be a positive contributor on our left side.”

Prior to making the jump to North American pro, the Ljungby, Sweden native helped lead Frolunda to the Swedish Hockey League championship in 2015-16 and back-to-back Champions Hockey League titles (2016,17).
