Peter Holland has over 250 NHL games on his resume, most recently in the New York Rangers 2017/18 season.

For the past two seasons, he has played in the Russian KHL with Yekaterinburg, where he accounted for 83 points (31 + 52) in 129 games played.

Now he comes to Sweden and the SHL to strengthen Djurgården.

The Stockholm team got their center locomotive Jacob Josefson long-term injured close to the start of the season and has since been looking for offensive reinforcement.

That's where Peter Holland comes in.

- Peter has a broad experience of games at the highest international level in both the NHL and KHL.

This, combined with the fact that he has played on big ice the last two seasons in the KHL, makes us feel confident that he will be able to acclimatize his game to the SHL relatively quickly as one of our two top centers, comments Djurgården's strategic sports manager Joakim Eriksson, to the club's website.

The contract with Holland is written over the current season.
