Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Fredrik Sjostrom
Frederik Sjostrom was born May 6, 1983 in Fargelanda, Sweden. The first choice, eleventh overall selection of the Phoenix Coyotes in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Sjostrom honed his skills in the Swedish Junior and Elite Leagues before making his North American debut in 2001-02.

Sjostrom is a three-time member of Sweden's World Junior team (2001-2002-2003) and a graduate of the WHL's Calgary Hitmen. The Coyotes first pick in 2001 played two seasons in the WHL tallying 127 points (53-74-127) while making his professional debut with the Phoenix s AHL affiliate in Springfield during the 2002-03 season.

In 2003-04, Sjostrom spent the better part of the season with the Coyotes while seeing limited action with Springfield, before helping Team Sweden capture a silver medal at the 2004 World Championships in Prague, Czech Republic. After spending a full season with the Utah Grizzlies during the NHL lockout, Sjostrom became a regular on the Coyotes lineup in 2005-06. That season Sjostrom established career highs in games played (75) assists (17) and points (23). After failing to match his career high set in 2005-06, Sjostrom registered 10 goals and nine assists for 19 points in 51 games in the with the Coyotes in 2007-08.

His stint in Phoenix came to an end at the NHL trading deadline on February 26, 2008 as the right winger was dealt to the New York Rangers along with David LeNeveu and Josh Gratton for Marcel Hossa and Al Montoya.

On July 1, 2009, he signed a two year deal with the Calgary Flames, though his time in Alberta would be short-lived. On January 31, 2010, Sjöström was traded along with Dion Phaneuf and prospect Keith Aulie to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Matt Stajan, Niklas Hagman, Jamal Mayers and Ian White.
