Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Carl Hagelin
Carl Hagelin was born on August 23, 1988 in Sweden. Following a stint in the J20 SuperElit league in his homeland, he attended Michigan University. He became the first Swede to play for Michigan and in his time there won a CCHA championship, was name the CCHA Best Defensive Forward, and was finalist for the CCHA Player of the Year Award.

Drafted by the New York Rangers in 2007, he joined the club's AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale for the 2011 AHL playoffs following Michigan's loss in the NCAA final.

Hagelin made his NHL debut against the Washington Capitals on November 25, 2011, registering an assist on a goal by Brian Boyle for his first NHL point. He scored his first NHL goal the next day against Sergei Bobrovsky of the Philadelphia Flyers. He would appear in 64 games for the Rangers during the 2011-12 season, recording 14 goals and adding 24 assists.

On June 27, 2015 the New York Rangers would trade Hagelin along with a second and sixth round draft pick to the Anaheim Ducks for Emerson Etem and a second round draft pick.

Hagelin would struggle to find his scoring tough in Anaheim. In 43 games he managed just four goals and eight assists. Part way through the 2015-16 season, Hagelin was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Adam Clendening and David Perron on January 16, 2016. In Pittsburgh, Hagelin would find a home on a line with Phil Kessel and Nick Bonino. He would go on to appear in 37 games for the Penguins, recording 27 points as the regular season came to an end. The trio, nicknamed the HBK line, played a key role in the Penguins successful march to the Stanley Cup championship.
