Paille signs with Swedish club Brynäs


Dan Paille is off to Sweden. The 32-year-old forward has signed with Brynäs IF of the SHL, according to the club’s website.

Paille spent most of 2015-16 in the AHL, but did play 12 games for the New York Rangers, with whom he failed to register a point.

The 20th overall draft pick in 2002, Paille appeared in 582 NHL games with the Sabres, Bruins and Rangers. He won the Stanley Cup in 2011, skating with Shawn Thornton and Gregory Campbell on Boston’s fourth line, a.k.a. the ‘Merlot Line’.
