The Tucson Roadrunners announced today that the team has signed defenseman Kevin Ekman-Larsson to a one-year AHL contract.
The 22-year-old Ekman-Larsson will make his North American professional debut in 2017-18 after spending his entire career in Sweden. Last year in 47 games with Tyngsryds AIF in the Allsvenskan he notched two goals and five assists for seven points.
The 5-11, 170-pound blueliner is the brother of Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson. The Karlskrona, Sweden, native has also played for the Swedish National Team on both the U-16 and U-17 levels.
