Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mathias Tjarnqvist
Mathias Tjarnqvist was born April 15, 1979 in Umea, Sweden. The third round, 96th overall selection of the Dallas Stars in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Tjarnqvist honed his skills in his homeland with Djurgarden before coming to North America in 2003-04.

Tjarnquvist would continue to split his time between the Dallas Stars and their AHL affiliate in Iowa throughout the 2005-06 and 2006-07 season. After 18 regular season games with the Dallas Stars, the club opted to trade Tjarnqvist to the Phoenix Coyotes with a 2007 1st-round pick for Ladislav Nagy.

Following four years with Djurgarden, Tjarnqvist joined the AHL's Utah Grizzlies in the fall of 2003 and spent the better of the 2003-04 season with the club, while seeing limited action with the parent club throughout the season. Once the Stars season came to an end, Tjarnqvist helped Team Sweden capture a silver medal at the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic.
