Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bengt Lundholm
Left-winger Bengt Lundholm was a creative offensive player who could handle defensive responsibilities consistently well. His transition to the NHL was made easier by the fact that he was an experienced international and domestic player in Sweden by the time he arrived in North America.

Born in Falun, Sweden, Lundholm represented Sweden at the World Junior Championships in 1974 and 1975 and participated at the senior World tourney four straight years beginning in 1976. On the domestic front, he was a stalwart on Leksands IF and AIK Solna. Just before venturing to North America, Lundholm helped Sweden win bronze at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics and took part in the 1981 Canada Cup.

The talented forward was signed as a free agent by the Winnipeg Jets and scored 44 points as a rookie in 1981-82 playing with Thomas Steen and Willy Lindstrom. He was a steady worker in parts of five seasons in the Manitoba capital before returning home to finish the 1985-86 season in Stockholm.
