Latest NHL Signings! Part XIX Swedish edition

Here's the long overdue version of Brochu's European rumor roundup: (with a focus on players coming in/out of Sweden to NHL teams.

The Philadelphia Flyers have signed forward Mika Pyorala to a 1-year, $500,000. Brochu's take: Pyorala is one of those European free agents to keep an eye on.

The Montreal Canadiens have signed forward Andreas Engqvist to a three-year deal.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Rickard Wallin to a one-year contract and goalie Jonas Gustavsson to a 1-year, $900,000. Brochu's take: Gustavsson was the most talked about European free agent this summer, and will be given a chance to back up Toskala in T.O.

Montreal Canadiens forward Yanick Lehoux has left the organization and signed with Swedish club Sodertalje.

Anaheim Ducks forward Josh Green and Minnesota Wild defenseman Tomas Mojzis have both signed deals with Modo.
