Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Pontus Aberg
Pontus Aberg was born on September 23, 1993 in Stockholm, Sweden. A standout for Djurgardens IF in his homeland, Aberg was selected in the second round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Nashville Predators.

Aberg made his North American debut with the Predators' AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals, during the 2014-15 season. In 69 games for the club he scored 16 times and added 18 assists. His production would improve the following season in which he notched 25 goals in 74 games. His strong play did not go unnoticed and he was recalled by the Predators for the NHL playoffs. He would go on to appear in a pair of post-season games as the Predators would reach the second round.

After spending the majority of the 2016-17 season in the American Hockey League, Aberg was called upon to play an important role for the Predators during the NHL's post-season. Aberg would suit up in 16 playoff games for the club, scoring twice (including a game-winner) and adding three assists as Nashville advanced to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history.

On 25 February 2018, Aberg's time in the Predators organization would come to an end. He was traded to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Mark Letestu.
