Biography

Anders Andersson was the first hockey player to twice win the Goldpucken Award, as the best player at the Swedish Championship – in 1961 and 1962. Only two players have since been awarded the Goldpucken twice – Leif Holmqvist in 1968/70 and Peter Forsberg in 1993-94. Andersson played most of his career from 1955-69 with Skellefteå AIK, except for a short spell with Färjestad BK in 1967-68. He never won a Swedish title with Skellefteå, but was a runner-up at the Swedish Championship in 1958, 1961 and 1963, while taking bronze in 1960.

Andersson earned 112 caps with the Swedish national team. He won an Olympic silver in 1964, was a World Champion in 1957 and 1962 and won bronze at the 1965 World Championships. Andersson was also European champion in 1957 and 1962, while taking silver at the 1964 and bronzes at the 1960, 1961 and 1965 European Championships. After finishing his playing career, Andersson worked as an ice hockey coach with Skellefteå AIK and Färjestad BK. He was awarded the Stora Grabbars Märke (Big Boys’ Badge) #54 in ice hockey.
