Peter Wallén, the agent of Engqvist, commented about the signing at Expressen.
- They have been after Andreas for a while now. We had discussions with a lot of clubs too, but in the end we thought this was the best alternative, says agent Peter Wallén.
- Andreas is very happy and satisfied. Montreal is an NHL team with a rich history.
It is already decided though that Engqvist will be loaned out and play another year in the SEL with Djurgården.
- He was injured half last season and we all thought it was good that he gets to play a full season in the SEL before he comes over, says Wallén.
