Biography

Center-forward Charles Berglund took up hockey with Huddinge IK in 1984. From 1986-87 he spent one season with Nacka HK and played with Djurgårdens IF from 1987 to the end of his career in 2001, except for a spell with Kloten Flyers in Switzerland from 1995-97. With Djurgårdens, Berglund won Swedish titles in 1989-91 and 2000-01 and the European Champions Cup in 1990 and 1991. With Kloten, Berglund won the Swiss title in 1996. Internationally, Berglund was capped 142 times with the Swedish national team. He won an Olympic gold in 1994 and was World Champion in 1991. He also won silvers at the 1993 and 1995 World Championships, bronze at the 1994 World Championships and silver at the 1991 European Championships. He was awarded the Stora Grabbars Märke (Big Boys’ Badge) #155 in ice hockey.

After finishing his sporting career, Berglund worked as an ice hockey coach. From 2005-05 he was the head coach of Väsby IK and from 2005-07 was an assistant coach with Djurgårdens IF. From 2007-10, Berglund was head coach of Timrå IK and from 2010-11 was head coach of MoDo Hockey. In 2011, Berglund took a break from coaching and started to work as an ice hockey commentator with TV channel Viasat Sport but terminated his contract in March 2012, when his old club Djurgårdens IF was on the verge of dropping out of the Swedish premier league – the Elitserien. In March 2012, Berglund became head coach of Djurgårdens and although Djurgårdens dropped out of the premier league, Berglund continued as head coach, stepping down in November 2012, after weak results at the start of the season in Sweden’s second-level league Allsvenskan. In November 2012 he became general manager of Djurgårdens IF.
