Kristian Huselius is reportedly close to signing with Swedish Elite League club AIK.
According to Swedish media outlet Aftonbladet, the former Columbus winger has been training with the team since this past fall and the two sides are discussing the terms of a deal. AIK's CEO said he is waiting for Huselius to says 'yes' to the contract so that he can be in the lineup as soon as next Tuesday. The 34-year-old forward spent most of the past two NHL seasons on the sidelines due to injury and he accused the Blue Jackets of rushing him back in the summer. His contract with the team expired after the 2011-12 campaign and now he is healthy.
