Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Anton Stralman
Anton Stralman was born August 1, 1986 in Tibro, Sweden. The seventh round, 216th overall selection of the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Stralman honed his skills in the Swedish Elite League with Timra IK.

A smooth-skating defenseman, Stralman crossed the pond in the summer of 2007 to join the Leafs' AHL affiliate. However, after injuries bruised the club's line-up, Stralman was called up to the blue and white to appear in his first NHL game on October 23, 2007. He went on to split his 2007-08 season between the Maple Leafs and their AHL affiliate that season, and looked especially comfortable in a game against the Canadiens in which he tallied two goals.

Internationally, Stralman was a member of Sweden's 2006 World Junior Championship roster.
