#11 ”Pebben” Axelsson: # 11 "Pebben" Axelsson:
-Frölunda club is in my heart. I always wanted to come back here. Now fit it well and I look forward to see nice things again with the team. Saw that Joel Lundqvist was talking about winning SM-gold. It sounded good.
-The atmosphere in the Scandinavium is certainly a right uttjatat topic.But I must say that it is one of the things I missed most. Playing in there is good.
-Four years is a fairly long contract, but I is on the other hand, quite young!
I'll miss you, P.J.
