Veteran goalie Ed Belfour registers a win in Swedish League debut

LESKAND, Sweden - Veteran goalie Ed Belfour was a winner in his Swedish League debut Wednesday night.

The 42-year-old Belfour stopped 16 of 17 shots as Leksand beat Sundsvall 4-1 before crowd of 7,000 fans. It didn't start out too well as Belfour gave up a goal to Ivan Puncochar on the first shot he faced.

Leksand leads Sweden's second division and hopes to be promoted to the top league for the 2008-2009 season.

Belfour signed with Leksand after failing to catch on with an NHL club. He played for Florida last season.
