Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Tommy Albelin
Albelin played five years for Djurgarden in the Swedish elite league prior to making the NHL with the Quebec Nordiques in 1987, the team that had drafted him 158th overall in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft.

After parts of two seasons with the Nordiques, the club traded Albelin to New Jersey for a 4th-round draft choice, and it was with the Devils that he got his name on the Stanley Cup for the team's 1995 victory during his nealry eight years with the team. Midway through the next year the Devils sent him to Calgary with Cale Hulse and Jocelyn Lemieux for Phil Housley and Dan Keczmer. After six seasons with Calgary, Albelin found himself back in familiar territory with New Jersey in 2001-02 and in 2003, he earned his second Stanley Cup ring as the Devils knocked off the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim 4 games to 3 in the Final.

In the summer of 2004, Albelin annouced his retirement from the game of hockey, however the Devils re-signed the former Nordique in December, 2005. He spent the remainer of his season in New Jersey playing in 36 games with the Devils before he called it quits once his club was eiliminated from the NHL playoffs.

Albelin played for his country more than just about any other Swede of his era. His international totals include two World Junior Championships, five World Championships (a gold medal in 1987 and silver in 1997), the 1987 and 1991 Canada Cup, the 1996 World Cup, and the 1998 Olympics in Nagano.
