Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Niklas Sundblad
Right-winger Niklas Sundblad played two games for the Calgary Flames in 1995-96. He spent most of his pro career in Sweden and Finland where he was known as an effective agitator who could score a few goals.

The Stockholm native was chosen 19th overall by the Flames in 1991 after a solid year with the local AIK squad. His robust play earned comparisons with NHL star Esa Tikkanen. Sundblad helped Sweden win consecutive silver medals at the 1992 and 1993 World Junior Championships.

The fiesty forward played his first two North American seasons with the AHL's Saint John Flames before he was recalled briefly to the NHL. In 1995-96, he scored 16 goals for the club then returned to Europe to compete for Finland's TPS Turku. In 1997 he scored a couple goals while helping Sweden win the silver medal at the World Championships. Sundblad then scored a personal best 17 goals on Turku in 1997-98. Prior to the 2000-01 season he shifted gears and signed with Dusseldorfer EG of Germany and later suited up for the Cologne Sharks.
