Former Bruins fourth line winger Nick Johnson is taking his talents overseas.

A five-year NHL veteran, Johnson signed with the Bruins as a free agent on July 5 of last year and had previously spent time with the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Minnesota Wild and the (now Arizona) Phoenix Coyotes, where he amassed 14 goals and 23 assists in 113 games played.
With the Bruins way tight against the cap and already in possession of young players from Providence that are ready to make the jump, Johnson's services were no longer needed in Boston. And after missing out on work in North America, he'll head over to Sweden in hopes of getting a fresh start in a competitive league with some good competition.
