Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Tomas Forslund
Right-winger Tomas Forslund played 44 games for the Calgary Flames in the early 1990s. Although his NHL career was not substantial, he saw extensive ice time on the Swedish national team as well as in his country's domestic league and the German Bundesliga.

The native of Falun, Sweden played eight years domestically with the Leksands IF club. He was a solid player for his club in 1987-88, played for the Swedish team that finished fifth at the World Junior Championships and was selected 85th overall by the Calgary Flames at the NHL Entry Draft.

Forslund debuted with the senior national team at the 1991 Canada Cup. He scored 14 points in 38 games as a rookie in 1991-92 the played six games the following season.

Forslund scored four points in five games when the "Tre Kronor" won the bronze medal in 1994 and potted a pair of goals when the won silver the next year.
