"There is concrete interest from the SHL for the offensively talented duo," Pontus Norén confirms to the Swedish newspaper Norrbottens-Kuriren. There is, however, no information on which clubs already have made a move to lure the two forwards back to Sweden.

Pär Arlbrandt and Niklas Olausson both are in their second season with EHC Biel. Whereas Arlbrandt has put up 53 points (26 goals, 27 assists) for the Seelanders in 66 games so far, Olausson has suited up 55 times for Biel and scored 44 points (nine goals, 35 assists). (tme)
