Ludvig Larsson Signs One-Year Contract With AHL’s Binghamton Devils

Former Penn State men’s hockey center Ludvig Larsson has signed on for another season with the AHL’s Binghamton Devils.

Larsson got his professional hockey career started with the New Jersey Devils’ minor league affiliate on a tryout basis, and he stuck around after appearing in seven games for the B-Devils. The center scored a goal and chipped in an assist during his tryout and did enough to stick around the organization next season.

Penn State’s first-ever graduate transfer, who’s also the first Swede to play for the Nittany Lions, had a productive season in Hockey Valley. He scored 25 points (nine goals, 16 assists) and was a steady presence in the faceoff dot with a 59.6 win rate on draws in 39 games played. Last season, Guy Gadowsky’s team finished second in the nation by winning 55 percent of its faceoffs after posting a 48.2 percent win rate in 2017-18.

Before joining the Nittany Lions, Larsson spent his first three seasons of NCAA eligibility at Merrimack. Binghamton head coach Mark Dennehy was also Larsson’s bench boss with the Warriors, and they aren’t the only two Binghamton Devils with Merrimack connections. Center Brett Seney was Larsson’s teammate in college before signing a pro contract with New Jersey ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Larsson is the second Penn Stater to secure an AHL contract for the 2019-20 season. Chase Berger will spend next season with the Pittsburgh Penguins’ minor league affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

About the Author

Mikey Mandarino

In the most upsetting turn of events, Mikey graduated from Penn State with a digital & print journalism degree in the spring of 2020. He covered Penn State football and served as an editor for Onward State from 2018 until his graduation. Mikey is from Bedminster, New Jersey, so naturally, he spends lots of time yelling about all the best things his home state has to offer. Mikey also loves to play golf, but he sucks at it because golf is really hard.
