Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jonas Andersson
Jonas Andersson was born February 24, 1981 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 2nd choice, 33rd overall selection of the Nashville Predators in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Andersson is a graduate of the Ontario Hockey League's North Bay Centennials and spent two seasons with AIK Solna of the Swedish Junior League.

North Bay's first selection, 16th overall, in the 1999 CHL Import Draft, Andersson was a member of Sweden's Under18 Team at the World Junior tournament in 1999 and was named to the OHL All-Rookie Team in 2000. Voted the Eastern Conference's Best Skater and Fastest Skater in the 1999-2000 OHL Coaches Poll, Andersson led North Bay in goals (31), assists (36) and points (67) and ranked second in the OHL in overall rookie scoring.

Following his first and only season in North Bay, Anderson joined the IHL's Milwaukee Admirals for the remainder of the 1999-2000 season and playoffs before spending the majority of the 2001-02 season in Milwaukee. A member of Sweden's 2001 World Under-20 Team, Anderson had a career high 30 points in 2001-02 with the Admirals while playing in a handful of games with the parent club. Andersson returned to the Admirals for the 2002-03 season but injuries side-tracked his development. Jonas returned to Scandinavia in 2004.

Jonas returned to Scandinavia and has since spent time with Sodertalje SK and Brynas IF Gavle in Sweden and Ilves Tampere in Finland.
