He's definitely going to LA, according to "reliable sources".

They might be wrong about this, of course, since it's not official yet. But these guys follow Luleň Hockey day in and day out, so there's probably some truth to this, at least.

EDIT:
They've updated the story now, and it's definitely true.

It's a one-year two-way deal.

Fransson:
"I'm so ****ing happy. It's a dream."
"I signed the contract yesterday (i.e. Monday)."
"I'm going there with the intention of playing in the NHL, of course."
Wow, that's surprising but the source is definitely credible with quotes from the player himself. Another guy to compete for a spot on the blueline in training camp and if nothing else, add even more depth to Manchester (ridiculously deep on defense already). A one year deal should be good for both sides.
