Biography

Defender Thomas Eriksson started his career in 1976 with Djurgårdens IF, playing there until 1980. Eriksson was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL in 1979 and joined the club in 1980. But his first stay at North America was not very successful, as he played most of his American stay in 1980-81 with the Maine Mariners, the Flyers’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate. In 1981, Eriksson moved back to Djurgårdens and played there until 1983, winning his first Swedish title with them that year, when he was called back by the Flyers. Eriksson’s second stay with the Flyers from 1983-86 was more successful as he was selected to the NHL All-Rookie Team in 1984. After leaving the Flyers in 1986, Eriksson played again with Djurgårdens from 1986-94, before finishing his career in 1994-95 with Västerås IK. With Djurgårdens, Eriksson won Swedish titles in 1989-91 and European Champions Cups in 1990-91. Eriksson earned 179 caps with the Swedish national team between 1979-90. He won Olympic bronzes in 1980 and 1988, World Championship silver in 1990 and bronze in 1979. He also won bronze at the 1979 World Junior Championship, was runner-up at the 1984 Canada Cup and won a European title in 1990, while taking silver in 1982 and bronzes in 1979, 1983 and 1989. After his hockey career, Eriksson became a policeman. He was awarded the Stora Grabbars Märke (Big Boys’ Badge) #115 in ice hockey.
