Former Vancouver Canucks Capitan Markus Naslund announced today he will join longtime friend Peter Forsberg in Sweden, as they both suit up for MODO of the Swedish Elite League.

Forsberg, who declined to return to the NHL because of his injured foot, and Naslund will reunite in Sweden playing alongside each other on the same team they once dominated 16 years ago.

“I will do everything in my power to get back in game shape, and I hope I can contribute to the team’s success, but I’m sure everybody understands that you can’t just jump in and dominate the league,” explained Naslund.

“I’m looking forward to playing with Modo again and of course, the fact that Peter and I can do this together makes it even more special.”

At 6’0” and 190lbs., the Ornskoldsvik, Sweden native, who retired early May, remains the Canucks all-time leader in points (756) and goals (346). Naslund, 36, spend 12 of his 15 NHL seasons in Vancouver.
