Former Jets and Capitals blueliner Julien Brouillette has signed on with Swedish League outfit Karlskrona, the club announced on Monday.
Brouillette, 28, spent the majority of last season with Winnipeg’s AHL affiliate in St. John’s, appearing in one NHL contest. Previously, he’d made his big-league debut with Washington during the 2013-14 campaign, scoring two points in 10 games.
An undrafted free agent that worked his way up through the minors, Brouillette will now be part of a Karlskrona team recently promoted to the SHL’s top flight. He was set to become a UFA on July 1.
