Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Peter Andersson
Andersson is one of a select few players who has the exact same name as another NHLer. This Peter Andersson is the all-time leading scorer at the World Junior Championships in Sweden's history. He also led his country to a silver medal at the 1993 World Championships in Germany and has played countless times for Tre Kronor.

Although he was drafted by the Rangers 75th overall in 1983, it wasnÕt until 1992 that he first played in the NHL, preferring the home life of the Swedish league to Broadway. During the first part of his Swedish career, he played at the World Juniors in 1983, 84, and 85 and won a silver medal with Tre Kronor at the 1992 Olympics.

After venturing to New York in 1992, he played just 39 games over two years before being traded to Florida where he lasted just eight games. During this time, he also won silver and bronze at the 1993 and 94 World Championships and returned to Europe to play first in Sweden and then elsewhere on the Continent, playing most recently in the 2000 WC.
