Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Thomas Rundqvist
Rundqvist made his debut with Tre Kronor in 1981 and the next year he played in his first World Championship. His partners on offense were Hakan Loob, a former teammate from Farjestad, and Mats Ulander of AIK.

One of the highlights of his career was Sweden's triumph at the Vienna World Championship in 1987 when Tre Kronor captured the gold thanks to the Soviets' 2-1 win over Czechoslovakia that put Sweden in first place. But in Rundqvist's opinion, Tre Kronor's success in Finland in 1991 was even more impressive. In Finland, Sweden won the gold without losing a single game.

Rundqvist's most memorable goal is the one he scored against Czechoslovakia in an overtime period at the 1993 World Championship in Germany. The goal put Sweden into the finals, where they were eventually beaten by Russia. Rundqvist scored many important goals playing for Austria's Feldkirch, where he moved with teammate Bengt-Ake Gustafsson in 1993. Significant among them were the ones that enabled the Austrians to defeat Dynamo Moscow in the Euroleague tournament.

Rundqvist is a double world champion, triple champion of Sweden and the winner of five national championships in Austria.

Recently, Rundqvist returned to Sweden, where he lives near Karlstad. He currently works for Farjestad, where he is responsible for training and marketing. His former teammate, Hakan Loob, is the team's sports director. Rundqvist is also involved in organizing the World Championship scheduled to be held in Sweden in 2002. Karlstad's rink will host the official games, giving Rundqvist plenty to do.
