Naslund Joins Forsberg in Modo

November 17, 2009, by

Ex-Ranger, and recently retired, Markus Naslund has decided to end his retirement and play with Peter Forsberg for Modo in the Swedish Elite League. Ready for the kicker?

According to reports, Naslund and Forsberg have both turned down salaries with the team will play for free.

Naslund turned down a guaranteed $3 million from the Rangers to retire, and has come out of retirement to play for free. That’s just a love for the game. Naslund performed reasonably well during his one year with the Rangers. He still had some gas left in the tank. It will be interesting to see if both he and Forsberg make the Swedish Olympic squad.
